Hello everyone, and welcome to Day 4 of the Royal Tour.
This afternoon William and Kate made the short flight from Wellington, on New Zealand’s North Island, to Blenheim, located on the South Island. Their first stop was the Blenheim War Memorial where they launched a year-long series of events commemorating the First World War. More on today’s ceremony from Hello!
As William, 31, and Kate, 32, arrived at the town’s war memorial to attend the wreath-laying ceremony, residents cheered and looked delighted. The event was to remember those who had died in all wars, and to particularly commemorate the 100 year anniversary of the First World War, which falls in July of this year.
