Over­cast skies and a crisp wind greeted Prince Charles and Camilla, the Duchess of Corn­wall Nov. 3 as the Royal Cou­ple vis­ited Cupids and Bri­gus as part of a Cana­dian visit that will take them across the coun­try. There was also a small but ap­pre­cia­tive crowd of about 100 lo­cal res­i­dents and vis­i­tors who trav­elled to the re­gion to get close to royalty.
