Spotted: Prince William Makes a Furry Friend!
This isn't the Prince's first visit to New Zealand, and making nice with the locals has become a favorite pastime of the animal-loving monarch. In January 2010, he got up and close and personal with a Kiwi bird, New Zealand's national symbol, during a trip to the Kapiti Island Nature Reserve. Looks like he's really got the royal touch!
