ST. JOHN'S, N.L. - Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall have arrived in St. John's to kick off an 11-day visit of Canada.
The royal couple arrived on time at the St. John's International Airport at 5:30 p.m. local time today in clear, cold weather and under a full moon rising.
The couple came down the stairs of the Airbus separately, with Charles leading the way.
They were greeted by senior national and provincial politicians, and Camilla leaned down to receive a bouquet of flowers from a little girl.
The motorcade sped off almost immediately to take the couple to Mile One Centre, where they were to be officially welcomed at a ceremony with speeches by Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Premier Danny Williams.
It's the 15th time Charles has toured Canada, but the first time with his wife Camilla by his side.
Charles and Camilla will be in the province until Wednesday.
They will also be making stops in Ontario, British Columbia and Quebec.
They will wind up their visit Nov. 12 in Ottawa.
Charles was last in Canada in 2001 when he spent six days touring Ontario, Saskatchewan and the Yukon.
