I can imagine though that the dog was gravely disappointed that Lupo wasn't part of the entourage. All that work getting his 2 legged staff to get him to the airport on time and not a sign of Lupo. He was looking forward to the royal tail wag.

Yes, anyone waiting for them, no matter how few, would have felt very treated indeed.

Many reports say it's a pity that we've seen George before they arrive new zealand... I think that if the official wanted to avoid this they have not done a great job JIMO

Sorry, I think people are making a big deal out of nothing. William and Kate probably didn't even see the two people standing behind the fence. It's not like they were standing right in front of them, and William and Kate failed to acknowledge them.

Wave to whom a big old empty tarmac. Why wave at all when you have a whole Australian tour to come?

Yes, a wave would have been nice when exiting the terminal, not on the tarmac.

On the way to the airport to welcome Prince William, the Duchess Catherine & Prince George. Can't pedal in robes! pic.twitter.com/k1vlC9jdQB
Weather so bad in Wellington (fog major probs) that Cambridges may be diverted to Auckland. Due to land now-delayed. pic.twitter.com/NsYW5OmGIR
Fog getting worse at Welington Airport but royal flight should be OK to land. Otherwise it's an airport 2 hours away

Of course people have a right to voice their opinion. In this instance, however, it's clear that certain posters go out of their way to find even the tiniest thing to trash William and Kate for. They have been determined to paint this tour as a failure since long before the Cambridges even left the UK. Had they waved, the complaint would have been that they didn't wave for long enough, or they didn't smile enough, or that their smiles were fake, that they didn't pose for this one woman to get a clear picture of them.

I can understand the frustration some here feel at posters who only ever post negative and unfair criticism, not infrequently with a fairly nasty tone. As we all know, there are other royal forums on the internet where people delight in those sorts posts, I didn't think TRF was one of them.

Cambridges running c30 mins late. Now due 12.15 NZ time (01.15 UK). 50/50 chance of plane being diverted to RNZAF Base Ohakea due to fog.
A motorcade from the Ohakea airbase is Plan B #ttrtpt #royaltourNZ

I hope not as that is 400 miles away. There is an RNZAF base closer (Ohakea) - which the pilot will know.

I just watched the "Sunrise" coverage so I get the logistics of it all now. Not surprised they didn't wave when they were getting onto the plane. From that distance it was not clear that the people were there to see them, and they might not have wanted to look silly by waving at people who were oblivious to their presence.

But we now know that there is definitely one Australian who is excited about the visit!

I must watch the "Sunrise" coverage of the rest of the tour. It's great fun.

Well, then, welcome to the Royal Forums and hopefully you'll enjoy your time here. You'll get a variable view of what posters will think here, and this thread will be chock full of these differing opinions as this trip unfolds. No site is free of criticism, and I doubt that this one is the exception so expect lively, not necessarily nasty, debate going on. Unfortunately, though, nastiness is often directed against those who do have a different viewpoint of the couple.

Live stream is showing a plane backing away from a Wellington gate. And a plane just landed.
Heaven's, I'm reporting weather news.
