The Royals touched down in Wellington several hours ago and were greeted by the bare-bottomed dancer after travelling to Government House.
Keeping cool despite the naked flesh, Kate - who stunned in all-red, smiled as she chatted to the Maori warrior, along with a line of New Zealand dignitaries welcoming their arrival.
And in keeping with tradition, the Duchess of Cambridge said hello by pressing noses and foreheads with the men and women, a greeting called Hongi.
Kate, William and George had flown to Wellington via Sydney, Australia, and are now set to embark on a three week tour of both countries.
Despite the long 30-hour flight from the UK, the family were all smiles as they emerged from the plane in New Zealand and all eyes were definitely on baby George.
Kate looked incredibly chic in a red tailored coat, dress and matching pillbox hat as she held onto her son, who was dressed in a white romper suit with cute knitted cardigan.
The tot, who is eight months old, looked the spit of his father and now has a head of blonde wispy hair. The little one has also just started crawling. Aww!
Over the next three weeks, the family will travel around New Zealand before heading back to Australia, where highlights will include a visit to Ayers Rock, the Sydney Opera House and a trip to the Blue Mountains to meet families affected by last year's bush fires.
The trio will return to the UK on Friday 25 April, after attending the annual ANZAC Day March and a Commemorative Service to remember those who have died in conflict.
