Prince Charles will bring his wife Camilla on her first trip to New Zealand when they visit in November.
The royal couple will spend six days here, visiting Wellington, Auckland, Christchurch and Feilding.
They will attend a sports event, a public walk, an event highlighting New Zealand’s wool industry, and will open the new visitor centre at Government House which is a Diamond Jubilee gift to Queen Elizabeth.
In Feilding, they will attend the local farmers market - recently voted the best in the country - before heading over to the Ohakea Air Force base to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Royal New Zealand Air Force.
In Christchurch, the focus will be on the recovery process and they will also attend the 150th Agricultural and Pastoral Show.
This is Camilla's first visit to New Zealand and the couple will also take some private time to see the sights during their busy itinerary.
Charles and Camilla will arrive in New Zealand on the back of tours in Papua New Guinea and Australia.
Prince Charles last visited in 2005. He famously visited New Zealand with his first wife, Diana, Princess of Wales, in 1983. The couple attracted huge crowds across the country and a photograph with a young Prince William on the lawn at Government House charmed the nation.
