April 11: Will and Kate's Sailing Race

The group will fly to Auckland, where they will have an "informal" meeting with families and service personnel who are stationed at the RNZAF base at Whenuapai.

After the base visit, the real fun starts, as the duke and duchess will travel to the Emirates Team New Zealand base to meet with the country's world-class sailing team and take part in an "informal" race against one another. William's private secretary noted, "As everyone probably knows, however, the duke and duchess are just a little competitive." What we'll take away from that is watch out, Will!

The two are no strangers to racing on the water during these types of visits. Back in 2011, Kate and Will competed against one another in a dragon boat race on Prince Edward Island during a tour of Canada (pictured). Will won that time, so competitive Kate may be looking forward to redeeming herself in New Zealand.
After the race, the two will take a spin on Sealegs, a boat that can drive on dry land and in the water. The two will then return to Wellington via the RNZAF base.

April 13: Wine and White-Water Rafting

Following a trip to Hamilton and Cambridge in the previous day, the couple will leave George behind for a two-day tour of Dunedin, Queenstown, and Christchurch, all on South Island. The two will attend a Palm Sunday service at the Cathedral Church of St. Paul and then visit the stadium to watch a festival of Rippa Rugby, or noncontact rugby. The duke and duchess will each coach a team, and Will's secretary promises, "We can expect some pretty competitive outbursts."

The couple will then fly to Queenstown, where they will visit the Amisfield vineyard, one of the locations of New Zealand's growing wine production. After tasting some wine, the couple will then go on a white-water ride through the Shotover River, which will undoubtedly be a good photo op. After their ride, the couple will return to their hotel in the Queenstown area.

April 16: Last Day in New Zealand, First Day in Oz

The duke and duchess will visit a police academy in Wellington before heading to the airport to catch a flight to Sydney. The family will travel straight to the Sydney Opera House, where they will be given a formal reception by the governor and Premier of New South Wales. Will is slated to give a speech, and then they will travel by boat across Sydney Harbour to Admiralty House, where they will stay with the governor-general.

April 20: Easter Sunday

After a trip to the Blue Mountains and a visit to Queensland, the couple will attend an Easter service at St Andrew's Cathedral in Sydney and then travel to Taronga Zoo. The Australian government made a donation to the zoos' bilby-preservation program on the occasion of George's birth, so it's not too crazy to think that the little prince may make an appearance at the zoo. The family will visit the bilgy enclosure as well as visit with kangaroos and other indigenous Australian animals.

April 22: A Trip to Uluru

The couple will leave George in Canberra to travel to Uluru, or Ayers Rock, in the Outback. They've been looking forward to visiting the natural wonder and meeting with the indigenous people in the area. According to William's secretary, it will be "a special moment" for the couple. Afterward, they will stay in the area before flying to Adelaide in South Australia the following day.
