Prince William will meet survivors of the mosque terror attacks in Christchurch during a two-day visit to New Zealand next week, the Government has confirmed.

The Duke of Cambridge would attend events in Auckland on Anzac Day, April 25, before travelling to Christchurch the next day to meet survivors and their families, first responders and the wider Muslim community, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said.

"His visit provides the opportunity to pay tribute to those affected by the mosque terrorist attacks and show support to the local and national community,’’ Ms Ardern said in a statement yesterday.

She confirmed last month that William would visit New Zealand following the March 15 attacks on two mosques.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge last visited New Zealand in 2014.

Prince William also visited New Zealand following the devastating Christchurch earthquakes in 2011.
