The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall will embark on a tour of New Zealand later this year, the royal couple have announced.

They will travel to New Zealand, one of the Commonwealth’s 53 member states, in November 2019.

The tour will take place exactly four years after the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall’s last trip to the country in 2015.

More details about the tour and its itinerary will be released closer to the time, Clarence House said.

New Zealand has featured in royal travel itineraries for more than a hundred years, and was the sixth Commonwealth country Queen Elizabeth visited after her accession to the throne.

The Queen spent Christmas and New Year in the country in 1953, and has visited nine times since then.

The Duke of Edinburgh, the Earl of Wessex, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have all travelled to New Zealand on official tours as part of their duties as British royals.


The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall visited both of the main islands of New Zealand during their tour in November 2015.

The couple also visited New Zealand in November 2012 to mark The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

Jacinda Ardern, the Prime Minister of New Zealand, said: “I am delighted to welcome Their Royal Highnesses back to New Zealand.

“I know that the couple have greatly enjoyed New Zealanders’ warm hospitality and manaakitanga when they visited previously.

“The Prince of Wales has been a strong advocate for the environment, conservation and sustainability for many years.  This visit will provide opportunities for him to engage with New Zealanders on those subjects, and to learn more about the ways in which New Zealand is preparing for the future.”
