Britain baby Prince George lands in New Zealand for first tour

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have carried Prince George off the plane at the start of a three-week visit to New Zealand and Australia, the BBC reports.

It is the first official tour for the eight-month-old prince, who was awake in his mother’s arms as the trio were greeted at Wellington airport by Prime Minister John Key and waiting media.

It was only the second time the baby has faced the press. The party were met with cold, wet and windy weather.

The couple were then taken to Government House, the official residence of the governor general, where they received a traditional Maori welcome.

They were greeted with a nose-press, called a hongi, and met Maori warriors.

A minor controversy marked the start of the trip – which ends in Canberra on 25 April.
