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. Prayers were said by former All Black player Anton Oliver and actor Kerry Fox; soprano Hayley Westenra broke down in tears as she read out a testimony. Prince Charles laid a wreath of white and yellow roses carrying a Maori message reading: “You will be remembered always”.
