The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall will visit New Zealand in November to mark the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.

Prime Minister John Key today announced details of the six-day visit, which will take in Auckland, Manawatu, Wellington and Christchurch, from November 10.

"The Prince of Wales will be representing the Queen on the visit, which celebrates her majesty's remarkable 60 years of service,'' said Mr Key.

The programme would focus on innovation in sport, agriculture and business.

The Prime Minister will open the nation's Diamond Jubilee gift to Queen Elizabeth - a new visitor centre at Government House.

The royal couple will also look at the recovery strategy for greater Christchurch.
