Sydney - Britain's Prince William and his wife, Kate, have arrived in New Zealand's capital to cheers from locals who braved windy, rainy weather to catch a glimpse of the royal couple.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge landed in the fog-shrouded city of Wellington on Monday along with their baby son, George, to kick off a three-week tour of New Zealand and Australia.

Prime Minister John Key greeted the couple before they were whisked off to Government House where they received a traditional Maori welcome.

William and Kate plan to spend the next few weeks enjoying a wine tasting at a local vineyard, meeting with The Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson, going on a jet boat ride and visiting Christchurch, which was devastated by an earthquake in 2011.

Here are 9 pics of the royals arriving:
