Protesters gather in downtown Montreal to greet Charles and Camilla

A handful of demonstrators have gathered in downtown Montreal to protest against the visit of Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall.

MONTREAL — A handful of demonstrators have gathered in downtown Montreal to protest against the visit of Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall.

Some of the protesters say the monarchy is an obsolete institution and needs to be replaced by a republic.

The protesters are near the headquarters of the Black Watch where Charles will present new colours to the regiment and meet with recent Afghan veterans.

Earlier today, the couple met with Premier Jean Charest before being treated to a performance by Cirque du soleil acrobats.

They then went over to the Biodome, an ecological centre, before their trip to the regimental headquarters.

Charles and Camilla are scheduled to be in Petawawa, Ont., and Ottawa on Wednesday for Remembrance Day ceremonies.
