Speaking at a state reception in Wellington, his father, the Duke of Cambridge, said his son was "at his most vocal at 3am" and apologised to his hosts for any interruption to their sleep.

He also predicted a future in rugby for Prince George: "He's a bonny lad and you'll be pleased to know that he's currently preparing for life as a prop forward!"  William and Kate are on a three-week tour of New Zealand and Australia that began on Monday.
