Prince Charles and Camilla land in New Zealand

Prince Charles and his wife Camilla have just touched down in New Zealand where they will enjoy a seven-day visit before heading to Australia.

The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall have been greeted with wet and cold conditions after landing at the Royal New Zealand Air Force terminal in Wellington.

After greeting Prime Minister John Key, his wife Bronagh and Wellington mayor Celia Wade-Brown, the pair will then move on to Government House for an official welcome.


Later today Charles and Camilla will attend a wreath-laying ceremony at the National War Memorial, place a fern on the Tomb of the Unknown Warrior and walk to ANZAC Square to unveil a Commonwealth walkway plaque.

Next Tuesday the royal couple will leave New Zealand for Australia.
