In the plush surroundings, William and Kate chatted with the parents of 10 babies, all a similar age to George, including a pair of gay fathers and a single mum. Toys were piled in the middle of the Blandor room as the children played under grand chandeliers and formal portraits lining the walls.

The babies were all chosen from families in the Wellington region, and all were first-time parents. They were born within a week or two of George. The idea was to give the William and Kate the opportunity to introduce George to the world in a less formal way than usual and give the couple a chance to swap anecdotes about the trials and tribulations of being first-time parents.

It was founded in 1907 by pediatrician Sir Frederic Truby King. He wanted to help babies and mothers dying of malnutrition and disease, and in 1908 the influential Victoria Plunket, wife of the then Governor-General, became its patron, giving the organization her name.
