Royal couple head to New Plymouth

5:56 am on 9 November 2015

Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall will be in New Plymouth this morning on the latest stop of their New Zealand tour.

Over the weekend, the royal couple spent time at a marae in Ngaruawahia, and met charities in Auckland.

They were greeted in Auckland's Aotea Square yesterday afternoon by hundreds of fans, many waving signs and flags, others just passing by.

Inside the Town Hall, the prince met members of Nga Rangatahi Toa, a group helping young people who had been excluded from the school system.

This morning, Prince Charles and the duchess travel to New Plymouth. On their itinerary is the Tea with Taranaki event, a visit to dairy farm, and viewing the new Len Lye centre.

They will then return to Auckland, where Prince Charles will meet Labour Party leader Andrew Little and Prime Minister John Key.

Last on their list, on Tuesday, is Prince Charles' visit to The Spirit of New Zealand training vessel on Princes Wharf. Later that day, the couple will leave for Australia.
