Royal couple arrive on P.E.I.

Prince Charles and Camilla arrived on P.E.I. shortly after 6:30 p.m. AT Monday, running a little late after a visit to Nova Scotia.

The royal couple were greeted by Island politicians, with a special place in the receiving line for Cameron Gordon. Gordon, a basketball player at Birchwood Intermediate School in Charlottetown, has Down Syndrome, and became a minor celebrity on the Island after a video of him scoring his first basket was posted to YouTube.

Charles and Camilla will take a short rest before heading out to concert being held in their honour outside Province House.
