Prince Charles, Princess Diana and Prince William on the lawn of Government House, Auckland, during their tour of New Zealand in 1983. Photos of Prince William playing with New Zealand’s iconic children’s toy the ‘buzzy bee’ (seen here behind Prince Charles’s knee) made front pages around the world.
