Prince Charles and Camilla Officially Welcomed to New Zealand

SYDNEY Ė Britainís Prince Charles and Camilla, duchess of Cornwall, were officially welcomed on Tuesday to New Zealand at Government House in Auckland.

The royal couple were given a traditional Māori welcome by the Armed Forces, kaumātua (Māori elders) and kuia (elderly women).

Charles also engaged in a wero (challenge) where a warrior places a small token on the ground for the prince to pick up, traditionally determining whether the visitors come in peace.

This was followed by a karanga (call) and haka, with Charles then taking the royal salute and inspecting a guard of honor, Clarence House said on its Twitter account.

Afterwards, the Prince of Wales met with the opposition National Partyís leader Simon Bridges, and held a meeting with Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern.

Ardernís husband Clarke Gayford and Governor General Patsy Reddy were also at the welcome ceremony.

Duchess Camilla, on the other hand, spent her morning taking part in talks with anti-domestic violence organizations.

Later, the prince and duchess visited Aucklandís Viaduct Harbour where they spoke with members of the public, and met with Emirates Team New Zealand Ė the world defending Americaís Cup sailing title holders.

The couple arrived on Sunday in Auckland for their third joint visit to the country and their second since 2015.

Their trip, which ends Monday, will also see them travel to Northland to visit the grounds where the nationís founding Treaty of Waitangi was signed, as well as Kaikōura and Christchurch in the South Island, before they head to Tuvalu and the Solomon Islands.
