Maori warriors get cheeky with Will and Kate in New Zealand


Britain's Prince William (C) and his wife Catherine (L) meet a Maori performance group during a welcoming ceremony at Government House in Wellington, New Zealand, on April 7, 2014.



Now that's an eyeful.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge got quite the welcome after touching down in Wellington on Monday morning for the start of their tour of New Zealand and Australia.

If you read the British tabloids, Kate apparently giggled and didn't seem to know where to look as she was greeted by a Maori warrior during a traditional welcoming ceremony on the lawn of the Government House.

She seems pretty calm and composed to us.

The royal couple apparently plans to spend a few days in New Zealand and Australia. They'll meet Peter Jackson — the director who made New Zealand's scenery famous in The Lord of the Rings trilogy, and will also visit Christchurch, which was hit by an earthquake just three years ago.

William also got a cheeky eyeful as he watched the warriors perform.

A Maori elder talked him through the ceremony, which ended with the traditional greeting known as the Hongi.

Prince George, meanwhile, seemed a bit "meh" about the whole thing. (But MAN is he adorable!)
