The Head Hobbit himself!! Shouldn't that be Sir Peter Jackson though? Or I getting that mixed up w/some other honour of PJ's?

He's done an awful lot to try and preserve New Zealand's Military History and TRH's could not ask for a better tour guide. :)

I too had it. I can't tell you where it is today after moving several times since I had it.

I had it too. No idea where it is now.

On another note, Catherine interacting with children always makes my day. She's a natural with them. That little girl was precious with her twirl, and tiara.

Duke & Duchess of Cambridge: Trip to NZ and Australia, April 7-25 2014

Mine is still on one of my bookshelves. Along w/both Beanie Baby Regular and Chinese Horoscopes Critters they put out back then. Used to be you couldn't go anywhere w/out seeing those things and now? I feel bad for those who went wild buying them thinking they'd be a good investment for the Future though. Anyway...

I am loving that coat on Kate and the colour is amazing!!

Did the Cambridges get a new female protection officer because that lady didn't look like Sgt Probert?

The elderly veteran with the photo to show Kate- it was a photo of himself and Prince Philip from the commonwealth games in the 70s.

William is rocking his Household Calvary regimental tie.

Well, so far for me this tour has been almost a total bust. The 'Duke' in the thread topic has only really been seen on arrival and at the official welcoming. Since then we have seen he and his wife lay a wreath. Apart from that it has been the Duchess and Prince George dog and pony show.

While I admit the TV 3 camerapersons seemed to have been inhaling Catherines hairspray and sort of losing the plot, TV 1 was almost a no-show. To be honest so far it has been an almost creepy replay of William's first visit to NZ . . . Catherine teetering down the steps with George, Catherine walking round at the Plunket do carrying George. Where is William . . . relegated to carrying the baby bag?

And, without George, William disappears almost completely, drowned out by "over here Kate" etc. ad nauseum.

And you're surprised by this?

Its only the beginning of the tour and they've got a ways to go yet but I see what you mean by William almost disappearing. Although it wasn't, the Plunket playdate reminded me of a "Mommy and Me" thing and there was William in the background chatting away. I think some of it might have to do with George's teething (I believe I read he's got 2 in and 5 more erupting) and Mommy's the comfort zone.
