The Prince will arrive in Wellington on Saturday 9 May, and leave from Auckland the following Saturday.

During his trip - his first to New Zealand - he will visit Stewart Island, Christchurch, Wellington, Linton, Whanganui and Auckland.

Prime Minister John Key said an interesting programme was being planned for Prince Harry to try to meet a wide range of New Zealanders in different communities.

The prince is currently on a four week secondment with the Australian Defence Force and will also be at Gallipoli for the ANZAC Day service, along with his father, Prince Charles.
