She's channeling Jackie Kennedy again...very much a Jackie style dress with a modern twist (zipper).

So much for the prediction that there would be no interest in this tour.

It's only barely begun and so far it's going wonderfully.

William and Kate have met dignitaries and have now gone into the town hall for a 15-minute lunch with locals.

Duke and Duchess enter Cambridge-
'Sirens can be heard as the Royal motorcade drives in, the couple waves to the crowd, who cheer and wave their flags. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will now do a meet and greet. The town was named for the second Duke of Cambridge back in the 1860s. This is the only second royal visit for the town of 18,000. During her 1953-54 tour, The Queen lunched at Cambridge and the museum has a small exhibition of her time in the town."

Catherine and William are both natural with children. They don't appear to be bothered by things such as germs, and being hugged. I truly never getvtired of seeing them with children. Each time is better than the last.

I can agree about them being naturals with children, and I truly never get tired of seeing them with children either. Each time is better than the last.
You don't think it's going to be, but it is.
Not surprising, considering the 2. people we are talking about.
What would be surprising is if each time wasn't better than last.

Bailey is so gorgeous. Confused though.
Does Bailey have terminal cancer? Or does her mom?
And if her mom does, why would they use the Children's hospice?
Wonderful that she met Kate. The reporter is right. That's what the tour is all about.

Her mom does. They also have grief counseling and therapy for children whose parents or siblings are dying.
Here's a link about what Rainbow Place does: Rainbow Place | Hospice Waikato

Ah, that makes sense now. Thanks for the explanation and link.
Bailey is going to have memories that last her a lifetime- and help her get through the hard times.
No one would choose for her mom to be sick. And without that she would not have met Kate. I'm sure she would gladly trade. Kate cannot make her mom well. But she can make the situation better.
I know what it's like to be a little girl - and have your mom in the hospital a lot. Fortunately, my mom wasn't terminally ill, and is healthy now, but if I had had a duchess or princess come visit me while she was in the hospital, it would've been a big help. So I can imagine how much good it did for Bailey.

British Royals ‏@britishroyals 22s
William & Kate are on their way to the Avantidrome. #Cambridge #RoyalVisitNZ

It seems like the media want to know that if William & Catherine are New Zealand royalty, why are there so many British flags within the crowds?

Bailey Taylor ROCKED that princess outfit and stole my heart. I only saw a photo on Twitter - but TNX Dman for the backstory. Now I know.

Oh yes, she totally rocked that outfit.
Of course, I bet little Mia - The little one from Bear cottage that was in the daily Mail a few weeks back, well rock her Princess outfit too!

Royals arrive at Velodrome-
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have arrived at the opening of the National Cycling Centre of Excellence in Cambridge.
The crowd counted down and let loose a cheer as the royal couple entered the Avantidrome, alongside Olympic Gold winning cyclist Sarah Ulmer.

Kate and Will had their loudest cheers of the day as they entered the velodromepic.twitter.com/tCzJO3Hjn5

Live Blog: Royals in Cambridge - National - NZ Herald News


Prince William officially opens Velodrome-
Prince William has officially opened the velodrome with a speech acknowledging New Zealand's rich cycling heritage.

It was an "honour" for him and his wife Catherine to open the centre, which would be the "cycling pinnacle" and "crucible of tomorrow's winners".

The Duke then christened the centre by opening the first race.

Interesting music choices for the royal visit to the velodrome - a Rihanna remix, now Coldplay

Almost like The Beatles Invasion.

Royal Visit NZ: Sunday agenda-
Sunday will be a massive day for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

They are due to arrive at Dunedin Airport at 9.30am where they will receive a traditional Maori greeting.

Shortly after they will attend Holy Communion at Cathedral Church of St Paul by the Octagon.

At 11am they will drive to Forsyth Barr Stadium for the Rippa Rugby Day. Prince William will rekindle his bromance with All Blacks superstar, Richie McCaw.

In the afternoon the Duke and Duchess will fly to Queenstown for an afternoon of activities. They will visit Amisfield Wineries for a tasting of some of NZ’s finest vino before a hair-raising ride on the Shotover Jet.

We’ll be online, curating all the best bits of the Royal Visit for you, from 9am.

Back at the velodrome, a new bike for Prince George
To wrap up the opening, founder of Avanti John Struthers gave the couple a tiny bike and matching helmet for Prince George. The Duchess laughed as she cut the ribbon and the box fell open, revealing the Lil Ripper bike. They were also given a miniature black and white cycling shirt for their son, emblazoned with the silver fern.

Whatever possessed that woman to wear those ridiculous leggings is beyond me, utterly pathetic IMO.
