New Zealand Prime Minister Chris Hipkins met with Prince William at Windsor Castle ahead of King Charles’ coronation later this week, with the two exchanging gifts unique to both England and NZ.
A photo of the two of them was shared on The Prince and Princess of Wales’s social media accounts. They can be seen having a chat in the historic castle and check out the smiles on their faces. (Prince) Charming!
“Pleasure to welcome Prime Minister of New Zealand Chris Hipkins to Windsor this afternoon,” the caption alongside the photo reads.
Former Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern met with King Charles in September of last year when she was attending Queen Elizabeth’s funeral. RNZ reported that the two had a ten-minute conversation, during which Jacinda expressed her deep sadness at the loss of Queen Elizabeth.
King Charles’s coronation took place at 11 am on Saturday, 6th of May (10 pm Saturday NZT) at Westminster Abbey. For the first time ever, the public saw the exact moment a British monarch is anointed, in the past it has been hidden from public view.
