You did it Dunedin! Hardly a drop of rain fell (unlike some other NZ cities on the royal tour) as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge arrived for their short visit to our stunning city. We managed to capture them on camera in the Octagon where they attended a service at St Paul’s Cathedral. All eyes were on Catherine who looked beautiful in an aquamarine dress by NZ-born designer Emilia Wickstead. We then raced to the Forsyth Barr Stadium for the ‘Regal Rugby Fun Day’. Thanks so much William and Kate for coming!
