Australia's new governor-general may have let slip that Prince George will be accompanying his parents Down Under, but New Zealand officials are staying mum.

Incoming Australian Governor-General Peter Cosgrove met with the Queen at Buckingham Palace on Wednesday.

The pair discussed Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge's upcoming royal tour of New Zealand and Australia, Cosgrove told reporters.

"That's going to be a very welcome visit," he said after the meeting.

"They'll bring with them Prince George the little one."

Immediately asked if he had inadvertently spilled the beans about Prince George, he backtracked, saying he "hoped" he would be coming and he did not know.

New Zealand media manager for the 2014 Royal Visit Office Allen Walley refused to confirm or deny any tour plans.

"We won't be commenting on Australian media reports," he said.

"There will be an announcement about further details in the future."

If Prince George does visit New Zealand on the royal tour, expected to start in April, it will be his first official trip overseas.

He will be about nine months old, the same age as Prince William on his first visit to New Zealand in 1983.
