The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have visited Christchurch, on the eighth day of their royal tour of New Zealand.

They paid their respects to the victims of a earthquake that hit the city in 2011.

The royal couple visited the Canterbury Television Memorial Park at Latimer Square where they laid down memorial stones as a tribute to Christchurch victims.

They also met with families of the 185 people killed in the earthquake.

William and Kate then walked over to the Transitional Cathedral where the local choir greeted them with the song 'Hine E Hine', a Maori lullaby.

The couple then played cricket in a city park, where Kate had to dodge one of William's bowling attempts.
