Royal Tour Heads to Manitoba Today

It was a royal "Welcome to Nova Scotia".

Princes Charles and his wife Camilla were given a warm welcome earlier today in downtown Halifax during a 40 minute event filled with music, cheers and warm wishes from dignitaries.

The Prince of Wales also gave his first speech on the tour.

He spoke fondly over the warm greeting received in Nova Scotia and paid tribute to the very first Royal visit to Canada in 1939 when Queen Elizabeth spoke in Halifax.

The royal couple arrived in Halifax on Sunday evening.

The tour continue today with stops in PEI and then later in the day Charles and Camilla will make their way to Winnipeg for the Manitoba leg of their tour.
