More details have been released about Prince William's trip to New Zealand next week, where he will be meeting with survivors of the Christchurch mosque terror attacks.
It's been revealed the Duke of Cambridge will arrive on April 25 for a two-day visit, the Government have confirmed.
According to the NZ Herald, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has confirmed William will attend events in Auckland on Anzac Day, before travelling to Christchurch the following day to meet with survivors and their families, police and ambulance officers first on the scene during the attacks, as well as the wider Muslim community.
In a statement announcing his trip, Kensington Palace said the Duke would be visiting on behalf of the Queen, meet with those affected by the attack and "pay tribute to the extraordinary compassion and solidarity that the people of New Zealand have displayed."
Jacinda Ardern also confirmed the trip explaining, "Prince William has a strong connection with the people of Canterbury since his visits here following the Christchurch earthquakes.
"I'm really pleased that he can make a short visit to support those affected by the attack and pay tribute to the extraordinary compassion and solidarity that New Zealanders have displayed in recent weeks," she said at the time.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge also released a joint statement with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex following the March 15 attacks, which condemned the "senseless attack" as "an affront to the people of Christchurch and New Zealand, and the broader Muslim community.
"We have all been fortunate to spend time in Christchurch and have felt the warm, open-hearted and generous spirit that is core to its remarkable people.
"No person should ever have to fear attending a sacred place of worship."
Prince Harry and his wife Meghan, who is due to give birth any day now, also visited New Zealand House in London to pay tribute to the victims and offer a message of solidarity in the book of condolences.
Prince William also visited New Zealand following the Canterbury earthquakes and the Pike River Mine tragedy.
