The Duke and Duchess start tour of New Zealand

New Zealand --- (The Today Show) The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their son Prince George began a 10 day tour of New Zealand on Monday.

The Duchess of Cambridge carried the 8-month-old Prince down the stairs as they departed the plane on their arrival in Wellington.

This visit to New Zealand mirrors a similar trip Prince William took with his parents when he was the same age.

Duchess Kate wore a red dress coat that's reminiscent of an outfit sported by her late mother-in-law, during a trip she made to the country in 1984, a year after her visit there with William.
