THE Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall arrived in Wellington, New Zealand for their 12-day tour on Wednesday November 4. 

Prime Minister John Key and his wife Bronagh greeted Charles and Camilla on arrival. The Royal couple plans to see a flotilla of Maori canoes, and visit an eco-sanctuary during their trip. After spending a few days in Wellington, Prince Charles and Camilla will then travel to Dunedin, Nelson, Ngaruawahia, New Plymouth and Auckland.

They will also travel to Australia where Charles is expected to meet the new Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull in Canberra on Remembrance Day November 11.


This will be the 15th time the Prince of Wales visits Australia, and he is also due to celebrate his 67th birthday in the western part of the country.
