The Duke of Cambridge is making a two-day trip to New Zealand for ANZAC day, confirmed by the NZ government. 

Attending events in Auckland on April 25th, Prince William will then travel to Christchurch the next day. He will be meeting with survivors of the mosque terror attacks, their families, first responders, and the wider muslim community according to Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern. 

"The Duke has a close connection with New Zealand and in particular Christchurch. His visit provides the opportunity to pay tribute to those affected by the mosque terrorist attacks and show support to the local and national community,"

"We welcome this visit by His Royal Highness and know it will bring comfort to those affected," Jacinda said in a statement.

Kensington Palace confirmed Prince William would be visiting New Zealand after the terror attacks last month, saying:

"The Duke will meet with those affected by the attack and will pay tribute to the extraordinary compassion and solidarity that the people of New Zealand have displayed in recent weeks,"

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge last made a visit to Aotearoa in 2014, with Prince William also making a visit following the Christchurch earthquakes in 2011.
