WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) — Britain's Prince William, his wife, Kate, and their baby son, George, interacted with first-time New Zealand parents and their babies on Wednesday.

The informal meeting with 10 parents was held at Government House in Wellington. According to local media, all of the babies were born within a week or two of Prince George, who was born last July.

William and Kate started their three-week tour of New Zealand and Australia on Monday.

The royal couple 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 the New Zealand city of Christchurch, which was devastated by an earthquake in 2011.
