Kate Middleton and Prince William were officially welcomed to New Zealand by half-naked men and nose kisses.

After arriving in Wellington with Prince George, the royal couple was greeted at Government House by 35 partially-nude Maoris, the nation’s indigenous Polynesian people who performed the traditional powhiri welcoming ceremony.

The Duke and Duchess also rubbed noses (literally), as is custom, with the local leaders.
