The royal tour is under way! William, Kate and George have touched down in New Zealand to begin their 3-week-long tour down under. The young royals were first spotted when they landed in Sydney earlier today as they transitioned to a flight that would take them to NZ.

As they stepped off the plane in Wellington, Kate was wearing a gorgeous long red coat by Catherine Walker (with dozens of buttons down the front) and a Gina Foster hat. She completed the look with a silver fern brooch borrowed from the Queen, and black pumps. But of course Prince George stole the show -- looking positively adorable in a cream sweater and shorts!

Kate's red coat and hat echoed that of Princess Diana's, which she wore in March 1984 with Prince Charles while visiting Leicester, England.
