The Duchess of Cornwall has predicted the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will have a ‘great experience’ in New Zealand in April.
Speaking at a Waitangi Day event at New Zealand’s high commission, in London on Thursday, Camilla revealed she believes the royal couple will enjoy their tour of the country when they visit this Spring.
“This April, William and Catherine are going, so I’m sure they’ll have a great experience,” she told guests.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are currently planning their month-long tour of Australia and New Zealand, which will see the couple spend ten days in each country.
It is ‘anticipated’ Prince George will join his parents on his first royal tour. Six-month-old is already clocking up the air miles after being taken on his first holiday by his mum Kate last week, as the mother and son joined the Middleton’s for a Caribbean break.
At the event on Thursday, Camilla performed the famous hongi greeting, which sees noses pressed together, as she met guests who represent New Zealand’s most prominent figures in the UK.
The wife of Prince Charles also revealed she is excited to return to New Zealand at some point despite explaining “aeroplanes aren’t my favourite thing”.
“I can’t wait to go back again,” Camilla told guests at the event, which was hosted by the New Zealand Women’s Association.
Guests included artist Mandii Pope and singer Hayley Westenra.
