We all learn a lot from a royal visit and, just as with the visit of Charles and Camilla in 2012, the campaign for a Kiwi head of state is taking notice of how the whole thing unfolds.
We take notice of how the media report it, we examine how the debate plays out. We note down the things that everyone else missed and we incorporate that awareness into building an even stronger campaign.
The huge PR effort to stage this most recent visit creates a wealth of opportunities for us and we will take advantage of them all.
Our campaign is all about being pragmatic. Faced with a head of state that cannot do what the country needs it to, we developed practical solutions. If something isn't working we look for ways to fix it. We look always to do what is best for New Zealanders regardless of their interest in royalty.
Be part of the campaign and help make it a success. Join today (or renew your membership) on this website and share your skills and experiences. The royal visit is all but over but there is still work to be done to build more support.
The Australian campaign will soon be in the spotlight but their leadership is looking ahead to a positive outcome. As their director David Morris has written: "We can warmly welcome the royal visitors next week while also backing an Australian republic. We look forward to the day when our friends in Britain warmly welcome the visit of an Australian head of state".
