Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall arrive in New Zealand

Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall have arrived in New Zealand on a 7 day tour.

Their tour of New Zealand will take them to Northland, Christchurch and Kaikōura.

The pair were met by the Governor-General, Dame Pasty Reddy, and the Deputy Mayor of Auckland, Bill Cashmore.

The trip is the couple’s third visit to New Zealand.

They visited in November 2012 to mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, and again in November 2015.

During their Auckland stay, Prince Charles and Camilla will receive an official welcome at Government House and meet with Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern.

One of the highlights of the royal couple’s seven-day tour will be a visit to Waitangi Treaty Grounds on Wednesday. It will be the first time a member of the royal family has visited Waitangi since the Prince of Wales’ visit 25 years ago.

The couple will fly out of New Zealand next Saturday.
