Prince William to visit New Zealand to honour terror victims

Prince William is to visit New Zealand to honour the victims of the Christchurch mosque shootings that claimed 50 lives.

The Duke of Cambridge will travel on behalf of The Queen next month.

New Zealand’s prime minister Jacinda Ardern said: ‘The visit will be another sign that this nation will always stand with those affected by the terror attacks, and the people of Christchurch.’

He is expected to meet survivors, members of the emergency services and others affected by the attacks, which left 50 people dead.

Kensington Palace said William would also ‘pay tribute to the extraordinary compassion and solidarity’ displayed by New Zealanders in recent weeks.

The Duke visited the Commonwealth country following the Christchurch earthquakes in 2011.

William and Kate also toured New Zealand in 2014 with Prince George.

Prince William last visited Malta in 2014 to mark 50 years of the island’s independence from Britain.
