The November trip will be the couple's third to this country. Their last trip here was in 2015.

The couple also visited New Zealand in November 2012 to mark The Queen's Diamond Jubilee.

November's tour will take place exactly four years after the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall's last trip to the country.

More details about the tour and its itinerary will be released closer to the time, Clarence House said.

New Zealand has featured in royal travel itineraries for more than a hundred years, and was the sixth Commonwealth country Queen Elizabeth visited after her accession to the throne.

The Queen spent Christmas and New Year in the country in 1953, and has visited nine times since then.
