TORONTO — Prince Charles and his wife Camilla are bidding farewell to Ontario as they prepare to embark on the next leg of their Canadian tour.

The royal couple shook hands with the various dignitaries who lined up to greet them at Pearson International Airport, before waving goodbye and boarding their plane to Victoria.

Earlier in the day, the royals experienced the smells and sounds of country life as they opened the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair in Toronto.

Charles then visited the Evergreen Brick Works, a project seeking to bring nature to Canada’s cities.

After their stops in British Columbia, the couple will visit Montreal and Ottawa, where they will end their tour Nov. 12.

The 11-day tour is their first visit to Canada as a married couple.
