(ROUGH CUT ONLY - NO REPORTER NARRATION) Britain's Prince Charles and his wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, continued their tour of Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea, on Sunday (November 4), as part of a 13-day Pacific tour to celebrate Queen Elizabeth II's Diamond Jubilee. The royal couple visited an orchid garden near the capital where Camilla was shown a hybrid orchid named in her honour. Charles was shown a picture of himself woven out of wool. "Makes me look as though I've got a beard," said the Prince. After meeting some of the local policemen the couple visited Boera Village where they inspected some traditional woven crafts. It's the fourth time Prince Charles has visited Papua New Guinea, but the first time for Camilla. On Monday (November 5) the royal couple will leave Papua New Guinea and travel to Australia for a busy six-day programme.
