WATCH: The Royals Get A Warm Welcome in Halifax Today

A warm welcome to Nova Scotia for Prince Charles and his wife Camilla.

Hundreds gathered to catch a glimpse of the royal couple during an event in downtown Halifax on Victoria Day.

The Prince of Wales spoke fondly of Canada, including an unexpected stop 42 years ago  stop in Halifax when he was in the Royal Navy.

He says his visit was due to an act of God..a mechanical failure on the ship he was serving on.

He says a fishing net and rope got caught on the propeller shaft.    The Prince joked that it was an American net of course.

The second leg of the tour involves a short visit to PEI.
