Prince Charles visits Dunedin

We had a touch of Royalty in the city over the weekend... HRH Prince Charles flew into Dunedin as part of a five day tour of New Zealand.

While he was here, he went to a church service at St Paul's Cathedral in the Octagon, plus visited the Royal Albatross Colony at Taieroa Head to highlight the plight of the endangered birds.

Unfortunately, he decided to have an early night (at the exclusive boutique hotel Corstophine) after he flew in on the Saturday night... missing out on the Great Southern Stag Do organised in his honour, to mark his last weeks of freedom before he marries Camilla Parker-Bowles.

It was disappointing he didn't turn up for a good old knees up... I'm sure if Wills or Harry had been given a similar invitation, they'd be well up for it! ;-)

Anyways, here's a few pics from his quick 'walkabout' in the Octagon, after the Sunday morning church service...
