Prince William Visit New Zealand To Represent Queen Elizabeth II

Prince William will visit the victims of Christchurch mosque shootings following month. Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and Kensington Palace declared on Thursday 28th March. Ardern said the focus of Friday’s service and following month’s royal visit was encouraging the Muslim community. William would represent his grandma Queen Elizabeth II, the official head of the state in the former British colony.

The Royals have expressed their sympathies in the shooting attacks on two Christchurch mosques before this month by a self-avowed white supremacist. She said reps from 59 nations, such as Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison attended the event that is likely to draw millions of individuals.

The Duke will meet with people impacted by the attack and will pay homage to the remarkable compassion and solidarity that the peoples of New Zealand have displayed in recent months. It said in a statement. The emphasis will be on the Islam community, with an invocation ring out across Hagley Park, speeches by Muslim leaders.

Ardern said that William had a strong link with Christchurch and the surrounding Canterbury region after visiting the South Island city. Ardern says to Christchurch, This is an event which has influenced New Zealand deeply; however, it was our Muslim New Zealanders who had been targeted in this act of hatred.

Prince William Visits At Christchurch:

William made a two-day visit to Christchurch following the earthquake to attend a memorial service. William already had a strong connection with Christchurch and the surrounding Canterbury region after visiting at the wake of a devastating 2011 earthquake which killed 185 people. David Clark also said “The situation Police are managing in Christchurch is distressing. If you, or someone you know, need mental health support.

Following the mosque strikes, William, Kate, Prince Harry and his wife Meghan delivered a message which ended Kia Kaha, meaning be strong at Maori. No person should be afraid to participate in a sacred place of worship, they said. This senseless attack is an insult to the residents of Christchurch and New Zealand, and also the broader Muslim community.

It’s a dreadful assault on a means of life that embodies decency, community, and friendship. Ardern has led efforts to support New Zealand’s small, closely knit Muslim community in the wake of the attack. In addition to symbolic gestures is like donning a headscarf while comforting survivors.

She also moved to tighten the gun laws and called for social networking giants to do much more to fight hate speech. She described Friday’s remembrance service as an opportunity for New Zealand to again show their inclusive values. We’ve never been free from racism; we’ve never been free from violent ideology.
