Remembered Always

The Prince of Wales has joined a congregation of some 19 — mainly made up of London-based New Zealanders — at a Westminster Abbey memorial service for the victims of February’s Christchurch earthquake. At least 166 people died in the magnitude 6.3 quake.

Prince Charles laid a wreath of white and yellow roses carrying a Maori message reading: “You will be remembered always”.
