Royalty in Wellington

Speaking of visitors to New Zealand, today we're honoured with the company of Prince William. In his first official international visit for the Queen, he's joining us for three days, which will include a tour of the 2011 Rugby World Cup grounds, a cruise around in an America's Cup boat, a barbecue with the prime minister and a visit to a children's hospital.

Best headline so far: Right in the Crown Jewels, with a report on how he received a minor injury while playing catch with a group of boys.
The reason for his visit is the opening of the new NZ Supreme Court building here in Wellington, which is across the street from our downtown carpark, and only a couple blocks from the buildings Jake and I work in. I love how compact our little city is.
