Why choose to travel 27 hours by plane with a 9-month-old baby?
For Princess Kate, 32, and Prince William, 31, the decision came down to the balance between royal duty and parenthood to their son, Prince George.

A curtsy just wouldn't do as Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge were given a warm Maori welcome at Wellington's Government House on Monday.

After they were driven to Government House from the airport, they were first greeted (hongi, or nose rubs, included) by elders Lewis Moeau and Hiria Hape.
