Prince William Visits Victims In NZ & AU

Very Kind Of Prince William to go to the ground despite the busy schedule of his wedding preparations. May God's Blessings Be Upon Him as he begins his new life with Princess Catherine.

BBC Royal correspondent, in Christchurch

William has a particular affection for New Zealand.

He has been here several times before, and he was the obvious choice when the royal family was invited to send someone to the national memorial service for the victims of the Christchurch earthquake.

As a serving RAF search and rescue helicopter pilot, William will have a professional interest in the way the emergency services have responded to the situation in Christchurch, and in the areas of Queensland in Australia devastated by a cyclone and flooding.

In Christchurch, he was taken on a tour of the so-called "Red Zone" the central area of the city which suffered the worst of the damage. He saw the damaged Cathedral, which stands now shattered and broken, and many of the estimated 500 buildings in the city centre which will have to be demolished.
