The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were presented with flowers during their walk through Civic Square this morning.
Plenty of Wellingtonians turned out to smile, and to be smiled at.
Because of early rain, first arrivals brought umbrellas to see the visiting royal couple on the last day of their New Zealand stay.
But the rain stopped shortly before they were due to arrive. And the official visitors’ book was brought out from under cover.
Umbrellas weren’t needed when the official signatures were added to the book. Note the happiness of the mayor and councillors, behind the visitors.
Looking down on Civic Square, you could see that most umbrellas had been put away by the time the brief walk was starting.
But earlier this morning, umbrellas were necessary for the royals’ visit to the Police College in Porirua.
Under cover, the police showed off some of their police-dogs-in-training, who were honoured by some royal attention.
