Britain's Prince Charles and Camilla Duchess of Cornwall arrived in Canada to begin their tour of the country on Sunday (20.05.12).
The royal couple landed in Frederiction in New Brunswick, which will be the first stop on a three-province tour of the country, which is being undertaken to celebrate Queen Elizabeth's Diamond Jubilee.
The pair were greeted by Fisheries Minister Keith Ashfield, who had never met Charles or Camilla previously.
Governor General David Johnston will welcome the pair today (21.05.12) and they will inspect the guard of honour and meet families of Canadian servicemen who have died.
Prince Charles is also expected to make a speech.
Writing in a column for the Globe and Mail newspaper, Charles said the tour of the country was to highlight work people do for others.
He said: "Service to others is the central theme of the Diamond Jubilee and it is this that guides the queen and my family in all that we try to do.
"Many of the engagements during this tour are deliberately focused on highlighting individual cases of success which tell a wider story so that they might inspire others to become involved in similar ways."
Charles was last in New Brunswick 16 years ago.
The prince's son William last year made his first foreign visit with wife Duchess Catherine to Canada.
