Wellington: New Zealand on Monday supported changing royal succession rules to allow Prince William and Kate Middleton`s first born to become monarch regardless of its gender.

The 17-year-old singer was chased by fans and paparazzi when he ventured out of his hotel earlier but finally got the chance to see the city at night, reported the
Daily Star online.

The `Baby` hitmaker, who is on a tour to the Middle East had earlier restricted himself to the hotel room to avoid the fans and photographers following his every move in the country.

The teen sensation had earlier vented on Twitter saying that he was being denied the chance to "walk where Jesus did".

But post his visit, he expressed happiness at the fulfillment of his dreams.

"Last night after the show I was able to see Jerusalem. Thank you for those who helped make it happen. Got to see the (Wailing) wall and the tunnels and even a sacred bath that Jesus could of (sic) bathed in. Incredible," wrote Bieber on Twitter.

It was reported that Bieber visited the city`s Western Wall at 3am in the morning with a team of 20 security guards.
