Enthusiastic New Zealanders.

Cross-overs on Australian TV this mornings show the day to be cold again with on/off drizzle - but no wind - on the tip of the South Island.

Reporters saying Union Jack bunting on houses, umbrellas and clothing, with Union Jack flags about.

The first event does not start until 11.00am local time, but people were in position at 4.30am!

The Duke and Duchess are expected to do a "walkabout" and meet members of the crowd after the wreath laying.

Also reports that Kensington Palace has reminded everyone about protocol - and that means do not ask W and C to join you in a "selfie".

PG's party yesterday went for less than an hour, and on one of our mornings TV shows, the lady hosts have asked that the footage be replayed over and over throughout the program.

They can't get enough of little PG.

Have a great day New Zealand.

Cheers Everyone, Sun Lion.

I lived in Blenheim for 2 years and I never saw that many people in Seymour Square at one time ever.

This story will kill time and make you laugh: Young Johnny meets the Queen mum - and promptly wets himself. Lives to dine with the royals. It's a lovely arc of a story.

George is a big boy...he's going to be tall and good size bones. His expressions are very much like William and while he has a rounder eye that socket area has that slant to it like his father and Prince Charles.

He's going to be better looking than William.

Have we seen William holding George at all on this trip? He always seems to be in Kate's arms but I would have expected George to be as comfortable in his father's arms as in his mother's and I would like to see William holding him.

Kate on the live feed interacting with the little girls in their tiaras and fascinators was absolutely adorable.

And some of the crowd look quite overwhelmed to be meeting her

At one point the crowd started chanting "We want Kate"

That one little girl who did that twirl for her was priceless!! :)

I always forget how much Kate talks w/her hands until we see something like this. She really looked to be enjoying her time talking w/the Vets. The Medals that one Gentleman had was pretty impressive.

Agreed! I always forget how animated she when she talks to people until I see a video.

And yes, that little girl was just adorable. Seems to be a very festive mood and a big crowd.

The crowds of people looks very much overwhelming.

I think Catherine's been given a bear that was made in memory of Diana.

I managed to catch a couple of minutes of the live feed before it cut out. William and Catherine have certainly gotten a sizeable and kind welcome from NZ so far. I would say warm but, judging from the looks on some of the crowd's faces as well as the wind on the soundtrack, that's not quite accurate. :)
