Prince William and Kate Middleton Get Traditional in New Zealand

It's straight to official royal business for Prince William and Kate Middleton! The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge arrived in New Zealand this morning to kick off their three-week tour of New Zealand and Australia, and just hours later they attended a Māori Powhiri ceremonial event at Government House in Wellington. They participated in a traditional hongi greeting, which involves the touching of noses and foreheads, and met with a man dressed in a three-piece KapaHaka costume, a traditional outfit for the indigenous Polynesian people; basically, he wasn't wearing much!

William and Kate briefly landed in Sydney this morning after a 25-hour flight from London with Prince George, who is on his first official tour. On the three-hour flight from Sydney to Wellington, Kate changed into a bright red ensemble and carried George out of the plane for the world to see.

The royals have a packed schedule for their 20-day tour, but will have a rest day on Tuesday to get over jet lag. Keep scrolling to see the highlights so far!
