Princess Royal’s visit scaled back

A visit by Her Royal Highness, The Princess Royal, Princess Anne to the Royal New Zealand Corps of Signals (RNZSIG) Centenary event at Linton Camp on Wednesday will not take place, NZDF has announced. 

“Given the severity of the weather and the NZ Army’s involvement in the response, the New Zealand Army has made an informed decision to scale back the event,” it said in a statement.

Instead, Princess Anne will visit the National Crisis Management Centre at the Beehive on Wednesday morning to meet with staff from agencies involved in the Cyclone Gabrielle response.

She will then attend a Service of Remembrance at Pukeahu National War Memorial in Wellington on Wednesday afternoon, where she is expected to lay a wreath and pay her respects at the United Kingdom Memorial.
