As previously announced, His Royal Highness The Duke of Cambridge will visit New Zealand on behalf of Her Majesty The Queen. The visit, which is at the request of the Prime Minister of New Zealand, will take place between Thursday 25th April and Friday 26th April.

During the visit, The Duke will pay tribute to those affected by the Christchurch mosques terrorist attack, and will recognise the incredible empathy and unity displayed by the people of New Zealand in the weeks that followed.

His Royal Highness’s official programme will begin on Thursday 25th April in Auckland. The remainder of The Duke’s programme will take place in Christchurch, where His Royal Highness will spend time meeting survivors of the attack and their families, first responders, and Muslim community leaders.
