New Zealand finds fresh heir in Prince William.

The day has long gone when a royal visitor can win affection in this corner
of the realm simply by coming here, though even that was becoming a
rare gesture until Prince William came of age. In him we have met a
future king who knows when he should be here and, even more important,
seems comfortable when he is here.

Christchurch's earthquake memorial service yesterday was moving for many more reasons than the presence of the Prince. He may have been the guest of honour but he gave the impression he did not expect to be; his manner and his few words to the service suggest he saw himself as making one contribution among many to the city's need of comfort and encouragement.
