Jacinda Ardern has announced she will finally start planning her wedding two years after her fiance Clark Gayford popped the question.
The pair have yet to tie the knot as the New Zealand Prime Minister has been forced to deal with a string of tragedies, including the horror Christchurch terror attack, the White Island volcano eruption and the coronavirus pandemic.
When asked how the wedding plans were going by AM Show host Duncan Garner on Monday, Ms Ardern laughed and said: ‘Not well’.

‘I’ve spent more time on housing plans than wedding plans,’ she said.
After noting she and Mr Gayford became engaged two years ago this Easter, the prime minister said it was ‘about time’ they organise their big day.
‘We will get there. A lot has been going on. It’s fair to say the pandemic really got in the way of not just our plans, but a lot of people’s plans,’ she said.
Ms Ardern had earlier hinted at a possible location for the event while speaking at a conference in Hawke’s Bay.
When asked if she had considered the area as the perfect place to walk down the aisle, she noted it was a ‘beautiful’ part of the country.
‘There’s a lot of pressure to make it local, and why wouldn’t I?’ she said.

Ms Ardern and Mr Gayford first met at an awards ceremony in 2012.
They then went on to have their daughter Neve Te Aroha Ardern Gayford in 2018.
Ms Ardern has time and time again impressed not only New Zealand but the rest of the world with her strength in handling of various devastating crises.
On 15 March 2019, Australian Brenton Tarrant stormed two mosques in Christchurch, killing 51 men, women and children as they gathered for prayer services.
Donning a black headscarf, Ms Ardern showed compassion to those mourning their loved ones and covered the cost of the funerals for those who were killed.
She also offered a heartfelt speech to those killed in the December, 2019 White Island volcano eruption.
She said the 22 people killed in the disaster were ‘forever linked’ to New Zealand.
Throughout the pandemic, New Zealand has suffered just over 2,000 cases of Covid-19 while 26 people have lost their lives.
