He might still be in nappies...but Britain's Prince George starts off his first official trip in Wellington. The eight month old prince touches down with his parents the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on a three-week tour of New Zealand and Australia. The third in line to the British throne is riding on a wave of popularity. The three royals were greeted by strong winds and rain. Duchess Catherine struggled to keep her hat on, her skirts down and George in her arms as she navigated her way down the plane's stairs in high heels. Her fashion choices are likely to be closely scrutinised during the tour. She arrived here in New Zealand wearing a coat from British designer Catherine Walker with a pillbox hat by Gina Foster. She also wore a silver fern-shaped brooch, a symbol of New Zealand, lent by the Queen. The royal couple were then taken to Government House, the official residence of the governor general, where they received a traditional Maori welcome. Prince George was not present for the outdoor ceremony, which took place under a light rain. He will only be taken to a few specific engagements throughout the trip.
