A person turning 101 is one of 64 people selected to share their birthday with Prince Charles.

More than 1500 people applied to attend the event at Government House on November 14, the Prince’s 64th birthday, which falls while he is in Wellington.

The party-goers include 17 people from the Wellington.

Details of the party at Government House are being kept quiet, though there will be a strong Kiwi flavour in the music and food.

Governor-General Sir Jerry Mateparae previously hinted that whitebait, asparagus, lamb and pavlova were among possible menu items.

Government House officials have asked guests not to bring gifts for Prince Charles.

To be eligible, applicants had to have a birthday on November 14, and be over 18.

Government House official secretary Niels Holm said people selected varied in age from 18 to someone turning 101 on the day.

A birthday card would be sent to everyone who met the criteria and who applied before the cut-off date, he said.

Is high tea at a funeral parlour your cup of tea?

Yes, it's fun and even educational.

Hmmm, I don't object but it's not for me.

No, it's macabre and in bad taste.

Over my dead body ...
