Британският престолонаследник принц Чарлз и съпругата му, херцогинята на Корнуол Камила, бяха на шестдневно посещение в Нова Зеландия. Това бе третата съвместна визита на двойката в страната и първата от четири години, съобщиха Darik News.
Thank you to everyone who welcomed The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall to Christchurch today as the #RoyalVisitNZ continued. Alongside Jacinda Ardern, Prime Minister of New Zealand, The Prince and The Duchess met pupils at Cashmere High School, which was affected by the March 2019 mosque attacks. Seven people associated with the school were killed in the attacks, including two current students. The Prince and The Duchess later visited the site of Christ Church Cathedral, which was severely damaged during the earthquake in 2011, and The Duchess met stallholders at Christchurch’s Riverside Market before finding out about the work the Salvation Army New Zealand carries out to support older people in the community. At the Turanga Library, The Duchess of Cornwall joined a workshop for young people participating in The Queen’s Commonwealth Essay Competition, which is run by The Royal Commonwealth Society, of which The Duchess is Vice-Patron. Her Royal Highness revealed that the subject for next year's competition will be 'Climate Action and Commonwealth' and presented certificates to school children.

Принц Чарлз и херцогинята на Корнуол Камила са срещнаха с премиера Джасинда Ардърн, посетиха и мястото на подписване на Договора от Вайтанги между представители на британската корона и маорите, както и град Крайстчърч, където през март т.г. 51 души загинаха при нападения в две джамии.
Earlier this week, The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall, @clarencehouse, visited the Bay of Islands and attended a formal welcome, called a Pōwhiri, at @waitangitreatygrounds. The Waitangi Treaty is regarded as New Zealand’s founding document, and enshrines the relationship between Māori and the Crown. Following the ceremony, Their Royal Highnesses looked around Waitangi Museum and met guests from the Maori community. Later, The Prince met young entrepreneurs who are developing environmentally sustainable start-ups through @princes_trust_nz’s Enterprise Programme, while The Duchess visited Kerikeri Primary School to meet children participating in the ‘Garden to Table’ programme. The initiative encourages children to grow their own vegetables in the garden and make recipes in the kitchen from the food they have grown. To end the day, The Prince visited the local fire station in Paihia, which was established in 1965. Fire and Emergency NZ relies on 11,000 volunteers to help keep communities safe. . 📸 Press Association / @clarencehouse
