Prince William is to visit New Zealand next month, to pay tribute to the Christchurch massacre victims, on behalf of the Queen.
In an official message posted on the Kensington Palace Twitter account, it was confirmed the royal will be jetting Down Under to take part in a ceremony remembering the 50 dead.
‘The Duke of Cambridge will visit New Zealand on behalf of The Queen to honour the victims of the Christchurch mosques terrorist attack,’ read a statement. ‘The visit in late April will be made at the request of the Prime Minister of New Zealand.
‘The Duke of Cambridge will meet with those affected by the Christchurch attack and will pay tribute to the extraordinary compassion and solidarity that the people of New Zealand have displayed in recent weeks.’
The announcement comes after Prince Harry and Meghan recently paid their respects to the victims.
