Kate is “keen” to visit New Zealand according to PM John Key.
“Yes we discussed with them, obviously they’d be most welcome to pay a visit. Obviously that’s subject to their diary.”
John also spoke fondly of eight-week old Prince George after meeting him: “He’s a very sweet, bonny little baby.”
Since the birth of Prince George in July, rumours have been swirling that the royal trio will travel to Australia and New Zealand next spring.
Prince William and Kate have undertaken two official tours since their wedding in April 2011. The couple visited Canada just three months after the nuptials, and last year they visited South-East Asia to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
Earlier this month, William announced he would be leaving his military role and would be concentrating on supporting his grandmother, The Queen, by undertaking duties at home and abroad.
