Defence Guard of Honour for Parliament Opening
A 100-person tri-service Guard of Honour from the New Zealand Defence Force will provide ceremonial support to mark the State Opening of Parliament at 2.00pm, Tuesday 8 November on the forecourt of Parliament.
As the Guard conducts a general salute at Parliament, the Army’s 16th Field Regiment will fire a 21-gun Royal salute at Point Jerningham.
As the Governor General approaches the dais, a Herald of Trumpets will be sounded by four trumpeters from the Royal New Zealand Air Force. The Central Band of the RNZAF, will also play during the ceremony.
