Prince Charles Visits Niagara

Prince Charles arrived in a fleet of limousines to the Niagara College campus in Niagara-On-The-Lake, Ont., Nov.5, 2009 at 1:45 pm.

Ironically for this royal preacher of global warming, the weather was windy and dour (just like home!) with sleet, which during his brief stay turned to small hail! Welcome.

The Chuckman, sans Camilla, did a walkabout, shaking hands and chatting for several minutes to the crowd lined up in front of the new Wine Centre. He then toured the Centre, and later walked over to meet invited guests in a large tent set up nearby.

The Prince did not re-emerge to the crowd waiting in front of the Centre, but left from the tent area to a waiting helicopter (one of five copters - four military craft, one RCMP - which had landed on the field east of the Wine Centre earlier, just before 1 pm).

Just after 3 pm, the Prince was airborne, heading back to Toronto.
