The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are breaking in Prince George early. The third in line to the throne of England may be just eight months old, but he is already on his first royal tour.

Prince George, along with his parents, landed in a wet and windy Wellington on Monday. They were greeted by New Zealand's Prime Minister John Key, who tweeted: "The Royals have landed in Wellington. Let's make them very welcome, New Zealand." 

The royal family will be on a three-week tour of New Zealand and Australia. Their itinerary in New Zealand will include a yacht race and a visit to a Maori tribe. The itinerary has been built around baby George as most events are scheduled to end in the afternoon so that his parents can spend time with him.
