Breakfast host Paul Henry has released this statement regarding the comments he made earlier today about Governor-General Sir Anand Satyanand:
“I sincerely apologise to the Governor General, Sir Anand Satyanand for any offence I may have caused.
I am aware that Sir Anand has made an outstanding contribution to New Zealand.
Anyone who knows anything about me will know I am a royalist, a constant defender of the monarchy and the role the Governor General plays in our society.
If my comments have personally offended Sir Anand, I regret it deeply.”
