His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales to visit the Territory

His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales will touch down in the Northern Territory Monday for a two day visit to the region.

Chief Minister Michael Gunner said this was His Royal Highness’s sixth visit to the Northern Territory. “His Royal Highness will visit Nhulunbuy on the Monday where he will receive a ceremonial Welcome to Country at Mt Nhulun,” he said.

“This will be followed by a visit to the Buku-Larrnggay Mulka Centre which showcases the rich cultural and artistic heritage of East Arnhem.”

His Royal Highness will then travel to Darwin to attend a reception hosted by the Chief Minister.

“I am delighted to host a reception in honour of His Royal Highness where The Prince will have an opportunity to meet with guests representing the many multicultural community groups that help make the Territory such a rich and culturally diverse place to live and visit.”

On Tuesday 10 April His Royal Highness will lay a wreath at Darwin’s Cenotaph to commemorate Australian servicemen and women who served in war, conflicts and peacekeeping operations.

“This is an opportunity for the public to join His Royal Highness and pay their respects to our brave servicemen and women.”

There will be a number of other engagements undertaken by The Prince while in Darwin, including Defence and Emergency Recovery related activities and a visit to Government House.

 “I am excited that His Royal Highness will have the opportunity to meet so many Territorians from different backgrounds during his visit.”
