Charles and Camilla were greeted with flowers from two young fans as they stepped off the plane in Halifax, Nova Scotia, for their four-day tour of Canada.
After stepping off the plane, the Duchess, wearing a cream silk dress and golden black tweed coat, smiled as she was presented with flowers by Grace Elizabeth Lenihan, aged three, and her nine-year-old sister Molly Jane.
Camilla, who was carrying a black clutch bag given to her by a Canadian friend, told the young girls they looked "pretty" as she collected the gift.
