Due to the current outbreak of COVID-19, and in the interests of public safety, Trooping the Colour was unfortunately cancelled in 2020. Those who applied for tickets through the New Zealand High Commission will be able to apply again in the future.

No announcement has been made yet regarding Trooping the Colour in 2021. 

Royal Ascot

New Zealand citizens are able to purchase tickets for Royal Ascot by applying online.  (The High Commission does not run a ballot process for the Royal Enclosure at Royal Ascot due to a change in security requirements.)

More information about Royal Ascot, and how to purchase tickets, can be found on the official Royal Ascot website (external link).  Tickets for Royal Ascot 2021 (external link) will go on sale on the 15th June 2020.  However, this is subject to COVID-19 restrictions.
