Prince William to visit New Zealand

It has been announced that HRH Prince William will visit New Zealand in early July. He was invited by British and Irish Lions Head Coach Sir Clive Woodward to join the team for the second and third tests against the All Blacks, on 2nd and 9th July. Prince William is also expected to attend a Lions training camp.

He is expected to represent HM The Queen at ceremonies in Wellington and Auckland to commemorate the end of the Second World War. Although details have not been finalised yet, he is also expected to visit a school, and undertake other duties while in the country.

This visit includes the Prince's first solo official engagement, and the first occasion upon which he represented HM The Queen.

Prince William is currently studying for his final examinations at the University of St Andrews, and is due to graduate in June.
