The artwork shows William and Kate building a sandcastle on one of New Zealand’s picturesque beaches, complete with golden sand and azure water.

One of the country’s iconic Pohutukawa trees, famous for its crimson flowers, is visible above the Duchess’ head.

In a diplomatic move the sandcastle built by the royal trio bears both the Union Jack as well as New Zealand’s flag in each of its turrets.
 

William and Kate charmed royal fans who lined the harbour enthusiastically waving flags and holding presents and flowers for the visitors.

According to New Zealand’s Radio Live, William had specifically asked to have a light-hearted race arranged for him and his wife, reminiscent of the couple competing against each other in a Dragon Boat race during 2011′s North America tour.
