Prince Charles and his wife Camilla were greeted by hundreds of people today at Halifax city hall as they were officially welcomed to Canada on the first full day of a four-day visit to Canada.
    
People were bundled up against chilly weather and a light mist over Grand Parade, a square in front of city hall, as the Prince of Wales was welcomed by Gov. Gen. David Johnston, politicians, military officers and aboriginal elders.
    
A 21-gun royal salute echoed through the city's downtown as the prince inspected a royal guard in front of the city's cenotaph.
    
The visit to Canada will see the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall also visit Pictou, N.S., Charlottetown and Winnipeg.
    
This is the couple's second Canadian tour since 2012, but it's the first time Camilla has visited the three provinces.
    
Charles was last in Manitoba 18 years ago, and he visited the two Maritime provinces in 1983.
