For today’s event showcasing New Zealand’s successful well-baby program Kate chose a somewhat unexpected designer.

This afternoon the two Princes and the Duchess returned from private quarters where they stayed Monday & Tuesday evening, to spend the afternoon with other parents of babies about George’s age, 8 months. The function was a playdate for the young ones, but also an opportunity for William and Kate to learn about the Royal New Zealand Plunket Society, simply called Plunket by most.

The organization describes itself this way:

We are New Zealand’s largest provider of support services for the development, health and wellbeing of children under 5. Plunket works together with families and communities, to ensure the best start for every child. Whānau āwhina – caring for families.

A group of parents and ten children roughly George’s age were selected to meet William and Kate while their children played with George; we show them below.
