A Ngāpuhi kaumatua wants Prince Charles to throw away his tour schedule and head for Waitangi.

Kingi Taurua was at the Prince and his wife Camilla’s first public appearance in Auckland yesterday, holding a saying “Go to Waitangi Charlie, the natives are waiting for you.”

The former Buckingham Palace guard says as a descendant of Queen Victoria, on whose behalf the treaty was signed, at Waitangi, Prince Charles has an obligation to acknowledge the link.

“My protest is to remind Prince Charles that he has an obligation to the Treaty of Waitangi and first and foremost Waitangi should be the place where all issues be addressed, not somewhere else. I’m really disappointed at the itinerary that has been prepared by government or whoever represented, Waitangi should have been the place where the prince should visit first and foremost,” Mr Taurua says.
