Touching down Sunday evening in Fredericton, NB with welcoming weather fit for the Picture Province, the Royal couple enjoyed a great reception from dignitaries, military personnel and fans alike.
Prince Charles spoke and noted this visit was like a homecoming – having trained there as a helicopter pilot during the 1970's “I have fond memories of my own military service...at an exercise area in the middle of nowhere...”
More than 800 were present at the CFB Gagetown ceremony to both welcome the Royal Couple and pay tribute to the members of the military and their loved ones.
Prince Charles and Camilla left New Brunswick on a late Monday (-5/21/12) afternoon flight to Toronto for another days worth of visiting following which they will travel on to Saskatchewan before heading back to England on Wednesday night (05/23/12). SABS
