Royal Tour gets on its Bike

12 April 2014

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge continued charming Kiwis during their visit to the Official opening of Cambridge’s Avantidrome this afternoon.

While Prime Minster John Key did receive quite a strong applause from the crowd when he arrived, it was obvious who the 1500-strong crowd really wanted to see.

The fact the couple were running slightly late didn’t stop the roof-lifting cheers as the royals walked out into the centre of the dome with Olympic cyclist Sara Ulmer.

There they were met on stage by a man they’ve come to know quite well over the last few days – Key.

A brief introduction was made before William officially opened the Avantidrome, thanking the crowd for their “extremely warm welcome”.
