Prince Charles has been appointed to three honorary positions in the New Zealand Defence Force.
Prime Minister John Key said today that Queen Elizabeth had approved the Prince of Wales’ appointments.
The honorary positions are Admiral of the Fleet of the Royal New Zealand Navy, New Zealand Army Field Marshal, and Marshal of the Royal New Zealand Air Force.
WB fully supports the decision to confer these appointments.
The NZ Defence Force has very close and abiding links to the Royal Family given that all members of the Force swear an oath of allegiance to HM The Queen.
