Britain's Prince Charles and his wife will visit New Zealand
later this year.
Prime Minister John Key today confirmed the heir to the
throne and his wife Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, will
touch down in November as part of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee
celebrations marking a 60-year reign.
Queen Elizabeth II took the throne six decades ago today, on
February 6 in 1952.
The pair's visit to New Zealand is part of a schedule
including Australia, Canada and Papua New Guinea.
The Diamond anniversary marks a time of travel for many of
the Royal Family. The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh intend to
trip widely across the UK this year, while other members will
visit countries across the world, reported the BBC.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will visit Malaysia,
Singapore, the Solomon Islands and Tuvalu, while Prince Harry
will tour Belize, Jamaica and the Bahamas.
