On their first leg of their royal tour, the Cambridge Family is staying at the historic Government House in Wellington, New Zealand.

Built between 1908 and 1910, the 45,000sq-ft property underwent a two-year £22m makeover, and reopened in 2011.

Government House is the home of Governor General Jerry Matapare and his wife Janine, who stay in a self-contained apartment. It is also home to valuable artworks and artifacts, including a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, painted by Denis Fildes in 1960, and one of Queen Victoria, which is on permanent loan from Queen Elizabeth.

When the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge arrived on April 7th, they were greeted by a traditional Maori pōwhiri ceremony on the lawn of the property and Prince William inspected a guard of honor before a 21 gun salute was fired.
