The royal pair made the journey to the Emirates Team New Zealand base by foot this afternoon.

They stopped for a quick chat with members of the public who came to see them.

The wet weather that has plagued Auckland the last couple of days held for the pair's first public appearance since arriving in New Zealand on Sunday.

After attending separate events the Duchess arrived by car, while the Prince arrived by boat.

Hundreds lined up to greet the royals, with one yacht playing Britain's national anthem.

They then headed back to the waiting crowd where they greeted the rest of those waiting.

Camilla was asked to lunch by one eager fan, which she politely declined before leaving for her next event.
