Well-wishers sang Happy Birthday to Prince Charles as he and wife Camilla went walkabout on the Wellington waterfront. Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall arrived on the waterfront to cheers from the crowd of about 500 and many couldn't resist bursting into song to mark his 64th birthday on Wednesday. Under blue skies, and accompanied by mayor Celia Wade-Brown, the royals stopped to shake hands and chat with members of the public. Wellingtonian Louise Dooley brought her dog Poppy along for the occasion. "Camilla stopped and she actually made a beeline for Poppy, stroked Poppy and she said 'how gorgeous'."
