Warm southern welcome for royals Prince William and Princess Kate

Their Royal Highnesses, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, visited Dunedin on 13 April, 2014 and a Regal Rugby Fun Day was held at Forsyth Barr Stadium to give the royal couple a warm southern welcome.

The Regal Rugby Fun Day saw local rippa rugby teams participate in a mini-tournament. There were also local community groups entertaining the crowd, including performances from the RASA School of Dance, the O-Taiko - Dunedin Japanese drumming ensemble, the Tahuna Normal Intermediate School troupe who  performed "Tribute"and much more. All Blacks taking part included Richie McCaw, Aaron Smith and Ben Smith, as well as former All Black and Highlander Brad Thorn.
