The King’s message following the recent flooding in Aotearoa, New Zealand

2 February 2023

It is with the deepest concern that I have been following news of the flooding and severe weather affecting several regions in Aotearoa New Zealand. My wife and I send our heartfelt sympathy to the families of those who have lost their lives, and our thoughts are with the many others whose lives have been so terribly impacted by events. I have long admired the strength and resourcefulness of New Zealanders, and I send my thoughts and prayers to all those who are supporting response and recovery efforts to help people repair or restore homes, businesses and lives.

Kia kaha, kia māia, kia manawanui.
Be strong, be brave, be steadfast.
