  • The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are spending the day privately today. The question is: what are we going to do with ourselves?

    Kate Middleton and Prince William have become a daily fixture in our lives since they started their royal tour of New Zealand and Australia last week. But, today they’re spending the day privately. We know, right? What are we to do?

    What are we to do, for example, without one of Kate’s outfits to critique from head-to-toe, or an accidentally-on-purpose ‘are we or aren’t we pregnant’ comment from William or, most crucially, a glimpse of baby George’s oh-so-chubby cheeks?

    Frankly, we’re at a bit of a loss. So, to help kill time between now and when the royal trio touch down in Sydney tomorrow, we thought we’d imagine how they might be spending their day off. We know they’re in Wellington so here’s some speculation based on nothing but a quick google search:

    1. The woods around Mount Victoria were used as locations for the Lord of the Rings films. Could a movie tour be on the cards?

    2. Speaking of which, directors Peter Jackson and James Cameron both live in Wellington. They’re famous, Kate and Wills are famous. Surely they’ll pop in for a cuppa and a gossip?

    3. They started their tour by staying in a cottage at the Wharekauhau Lodge just outside of Wellington near Palliser Bay. As you would imagine, it’s pretty luxurious and an ideal place to recover from days spent of talking to the general public.

    4. Or, if Kate really is just like us (as we so like to believe), she’ll probably shut the blinds, throw on her her PJs and catch up on some telly – there are two Game of Thrones episodes to watch and the True Detective final was an absolute corker.

    Bring on the Australia leg of the royal tour tomorrow.

    This is why Kate Middleton and Prince William’s weekend was probably more exciting than yours….
