BLENHEIM, New Zealand -- Britain's Prince William and his wife, Kate, have met with "The Lord of the Rings" director Peter Jackson during a visit to an aviation museum in New Zealand.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited the museum on Thursday in Marlborough, on the country's South Island, as part of a 3-week tour of New Zealand and Australia.
The Oscar-winning director gave the royal couple a tour of his collection of World War I aircraft that are housed at the museum.
Kate and WIlliam have a busy few weeks ahead, with their planned activities including a wine tasting at a local vineyard, a jet boat ride and a visit to the city of Christchurch, which was devastated by an earthquake in 2011.
