Until now I haven't really written anything about the Tour, because most information was already widely available on other websites and blogs. But of course I will be following the Duke and Duchess closely the next three weeks, like the rest of you. The next three weeks you can expect regular posts looking forward with a summary of the schedule, the weather and outfit predictions. And of course there will be an awesome replikate contest and giveaway (read more info on that below)!
The next few days: 7-9 April in Wellington (NZ)
In a few hours on Monday 7 April at 11:30, William, Kate and George will arrive at the military terminal of Wellington Airport. Most likely there will be the opportunity to see a little bit of George. After that William and Kate will attend a reception at the Government House, hosted by Governor-General Sir Jerry Mateparae and his wife Janine. There they will also partake in a Maori traditional welcoming ceremony (called a 'Powhiri') and an inspection of the Guard of Honour.
The next afternoon, on Wednesday 9 April, William and Kate will meet with Plunket, a charity focused on supporting new mothers and fathers and their children, at the Government House. There are suggestions they might bring Prince George, but I doubt it.
Unfortunately the weather for the next few days isn't that awesome in Wellington, with temperatures between 12-18 °C (52-63 °F), cloudy skies and light rain.
And then on to the possible outfits Kate might wear. The first few days we won't see a lot of different outfits, but there will be the arrival, and the welcoming reception. Let us first take a look at previous outfits of Kate when she stepped out of a plane.

Replikate contest & giveaway!
What's there to win?
Unfortunately no sparkly events during this tour, so I thought I make things a bit more sparkly myself by giving away the one and only Zara necklace as worn by Kate during the
