Dame Patsy will be officially welcomed at 10am this morning.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and other ministers and MPs will be welcomed onto Te Whare Rūnanga marae on the treaty grounds tomorrow.

It's Ms Ardern's third day at Waitangi and RNZ Te Manu Korihi reporter Shannon Haunui-Thompson said the Prime Minister has been warmly received there so far.

Haunui-Thompson said protests so far have been low key but a group is planning a hikoi from the lower marae to the treaty grounds on Waitangi Day on Tuesday.
