Ill-feeling caused by a failed royal visit to the Maori King last year will be put to rest next month when the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall visit Turangawaewae marae. An offer of a 90-minute visit to the marae by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge last year, was turned down by the Kingitanga, as the time allowed was deemed too short for proper protocols to be followed. It was viewed by some as a royal snub. Details of the visit next month were released this morning. Andrew McRae reports.
