Prince Charles and wife Camilla arrive in Canada for 4-day visit

Prince Charles his wife Camilla have arrived in Halifax for the first leg of their four-day tour.

Their arrival kicks off a whirlwind, four-day trip that includes stops in Pictou, N.S., the P.E.I. communities of Charlottetown, Bonshaw and Cornwall, as well as Winnipeg.

An official welcome ceremony will be held on Monday outside Halifax's city hall, where Charles will make the first of four speeches planned for the tour.

Later, Charles will plant an English oak tree in the city's Public Gardens, a tradition started 75 years ago by his grandfather King George VI.

It's Charles' first visit to Nova Scotia since 1983 and the first for the Duchess of Cornwall.

The theme for the tour, the couple's second Canadian trip since 2012, is commemorating Canada's past and looking ahead to the future.
