His Excellency The Right Honourable Sir Anand Satyanand GNZM, QSO
Governor-General of New Zealand
I am deeply saddened by the news of the terrible earthquake which has hit Christchurch, resulting in the tragic loss of so many lives and causing such substantial damage.
Please receive my sincere condolences and my deepest sympathies to those bereaved and others afflicted by this disaster.
“If there is one piece of advice I would give you today, as King, godfather and grandfather, it is this: Be yourself,” said His Majesty The King in his speech at the luncheon celebrating the confirmation of Her Royal Highness Princess Ingrid Alexandra.
Her Royal Highness Princess Ingrid Alexandra was confirmed today in the Palace Chapel, just as her father, grandfather and great-grandfather were before her.
