On the sixth day of the Duke and Duchess' royal tour of New Zealand, the Cambridges went to Cambridge, a small Waikato town.

During the visit the royals paid their respects at a war memorial and opened a cycling centre, where they were presented with gifts for Prince George.

The couple also visited Hamilton, where Catherine spoke to children at Rainbow Place, a hospice for families affected by terminal illness, in what has been described as a "fact-finding" visit.
