Prince Right Person to Open Supreme Court

Press Release

 

12 November 2009

Prince Right Person to Open Supreme Court

Monarchy New Zealand (also known as the Monarchist League of New Zealand) welcomes the news that Prince William will be returning to New Zealand in January 2010.

Chairman Professor Noel Cox said “visits from members of our Royal family are always welcome, and to have the second in line to the New Zealand throne, is a great way to begin the new year.”


While here, Prince William will be opening the new Supreme Court building in Wellington.  That a representative of New Zealand’s Royal family presides over the opening is a powerful symbol of the independence of the Courts.  The Prince will represent all New Zealanders on behalf of our Head of State, The Queen.


Professor Cox noted, “Our Royal Family stands above partisan politics and remains one of the great constitutional strengths of New Zealand’s democracy. The opening of the permanent new home for the highest appellate court in the country is a great opportunity for the Prince to contribute to our constitutional and legal life.”
