New Zealand marks Queen’s death with holiday and church service | app

The South Pacific nation is one of 14 countries outside the UK that continue to recognize the British monarch as their symbolic head of state. New Zealand had decided to wait until after last week’s funeral in Britain to hold its own commemoration.
