6:16 am on 19 September 2012

Prince Charles and his wife, the Duchess of Cornwall, will visit Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch in November this year.

The visit by the Prince of Wales is part of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebrations.

Prince Charles last came to New Zealand in 2005, but this will be the Duchess of Cornwall's first visit.

They will be in New Zealand for six days, from 10 to 16 November.

The couple will also stop in Manawatu, and the Prince will visit the Ohakea Air Force Base.

In Christchurch, the visit will focus on the recovery strategy for the region, and the future plans for the city.

The visit was announced in December, but more detail was given on Tuesday.
