In pictures: Welcome ceremony for Prince Charles and Camilla

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 Governor-General 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 Canadian Press
