The Royals Auckland Harbour - Day Three

Our Royals flew from Wellington to Auckland
on an RNZAF Air Force plane
for some action and adventure pursuits.

They met Air Force families
at Hobsonville Air Base.

Then on to Auckland City
to board two previous
America's Cup racing yachts
for some fun match racing on the harbour! 

 My embroidery friend Mary
invited us for lunch today to see
the Royals at play!

Mary's apartment on Princes Wharf
was the perfect vantage point to see all the action!

Mary's three little granddaughters waiting to see Princess Kate in her tiara!!!

Wonderful to hear you're all enjoying
my snippets on our beautiful Royal family!
The baby stays at Government House
in Wellington and his parents
fly back to be with him each evening.
We've heard from a reliable source
that Prince William gives Prince George
his bottle in the evening......
he's just a normal dad like thousands
of others the world over.... awww!!!

Take care and be kind to each other
  Merci à bientôt
