Tuesday, May 20, 2014, 7:11 AM - Prince Charles and Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, continue their royal tour in Charlottetown Tuesday.

The rain didn't put a damper on the fireworks display they attended in Charlottetown Harbour on Monday night.

"Much of the region faced unsettled conditions throughout the day on Monday," says Weather Network meteorologist Matt Grinter. "Similar conditions are expected on Tuesday, with a more seasonal/pleasant day forecast for Wednesday. However, an off-shore low is forecast to impact the region on Thursday and Friday, causing a return to unsettled conditions."

The royal couple arrived in P.E.I. shortly after 6:30 pm on Monday, after starting their four day tour in Nova Scotia.

Prince Charles reflected on Canada's contribution to the Second World War before the couple went on a walkabout among hundreds of people in Halifax, says The Canadian Press. Canada's military involvement was a central theme of the royal couple's tour of Halifax -- the first stop in a tour of three provincial capitals.

According to The Canadian Press, this is their second Canadian tour since 2012, but it's the first time Camilla has visited the three provinces on the schedule, Nova Scotia, P.E.I and Manitoba.
