AUCKLAND, New Zealand (AP) — Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla, have visited an Auckland war museum and greeted indigenous Maori at the start of their tour of New Zealand.
The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall landed in Auckland on Saturday night and toured the city Sunday. The couple are visiting for six days on the last leg of their Pacific tour marking Queen Elizabeth II's 60th Jubilee.
Hundreds of people gathered at the Auckland War Memorial Museum to watch Charles lay a wreath to commemorate Armistice Day, which marks the 1918 end of World War I.
Charles said "Kia ora," a traditional Maori greeting. Camilla's brimmed hat made it a little difficult for her to complete a "hongi," another traditional greeting in which two people press noses, but she managed.
