A private audience with Her Majesty


The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic meant that in 2021 incoming Governor-General Dame Cindy Kiro (Ngāpuhi, Ngāti Kahu, Ngāti Hine, English) was unable to travel to Britain to meet the Queen in person before taking office. Instead, the two met over video and Dame Cindy was invested virtually with the traditional insignia of the governor-general.
