The 68-year-old royal and his second wife - who he married in 2005 - are set to take a trip to the southern municipality in Ontario today as part of the couples three-day tour of Canada, which will take them from Iqaluit, Nunavut to Wellington, Ontario.

It has been reported as part of the pair's tour they will explore the work carried out in the area, to help develop the Prince Edward County.

A statement, which has been obtained by Star.com, read: "The work being done to develop and promote the farm to table and shop locally movement in Prince Edward County."

And the owner of a winery in the county, Norman Hardie, is eager for the royal couple to witness the "exciting things" that happen in the area.

He said: "The county is very much an agricultural community.

"I think it's amazing for Prince Edward County, there's a lot of exciting things happening there."

And the entrepreneur is "over the moon" for Charles and Camilla to visit, because he "never" thought they would grace his land.

He explained: "I'm just over the moon. I never would have guessed in a million years that this would have happened.

"Overall I think it's so good for everyone in the county,"

During Charles and Camilla's visit they will be welcomed at the Wellington Farmers' Market by vendors and artisans, before they celebrate Canada's 150th birthday in Ottawa and Gatineau.
