Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said the royals will be able to see Christchurch’s development after the 2011 earthquakes and “how the community has rallied to support those affected by the March 15 terrorist attacks”.

The couple will also be the first members of the royal family to set foot in Waitangi in 25 years.

“The effects on the community of the 2016 earthquake will also be seen first hand at Kaikōura,” Ms Ardern said.

“I look forward to welcoming Their Royal Highnesses back to New Zealand.”
