New Zealand on Monday held a state memorial service in honor of the late Queen Elizabeth II.
Hundreds attended the service at the Cathedral of St Paul in the capital Wellington, which also marked a new holiday to commemorate the queen's death.
Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern spoke to the attendees and read an excerpt from a souvenir book which was released to mark the queen's first visit in 1953.
