Aucklanders will get a chance to see The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall during a public walk in the Viaduct Harbour tomorrow afternoon.

The walk will include a short outdoor engagement with Emirates Team New Zealand as they continue preparations for the America’s Cup yacht race being hosted in Auckland in 2021.

Before the walk The Prince will meet with volunteers from Sea Cleaners, who clear plastic from the coastal waters around New Zealand. His Royal Highness will then board a vessel and join the crew on a short plastic patrol around the Harbour.

The Duchess of Cornwall will join a roundtable discussion organised by the domestic violence organisation, Shine, together with survivors and national campaigners. She will also join discussions hosted by the Governor-General, Dame Patsy Reddy, at Government House. In attendance will be Jude Kelly, who launched the Women of the World global movement in London in 2010, celebrating women and girls and looking at the obstacles that stop them from achieving their potential.

The Prince will join a Prince’s Trust tea at Mantells in Mt Eden. The Prince’s Trust New Zealand was set up in 2018 to support initiatives that work with youth.
