Prime Minister John Key will meet the Queen on Tuesday as part of his trip to Britain.

Mr Key has meetings in France and Britain this week and will attend the royal wedding on Friday.

Mr Key says the meeting with the Queen will be an opportunity to update her on the situation in Christchurch after the earthquake, which he says she is very concerned about.

He says she will also want an update on the families affected by the Pike River mine disaster.

The meeting is at 11.30pm (NZT).
