Prince Charles celebrates 64th birthday
Nov 14, 2012, 12:02 GMT
Britain's Prince Charles celebrated his 64th birthday in Wellington earlier today (14.11.12).
The heir to the throne is currently on a tour of Papua New Guinea, Australia and New Zealand representing his mother Queen Elizabeth in her Diamond Jubilee year, and a special cake was gifted to the prince featuring 64 separate Kiwi-themed sections.
Included in the images were hokey-pokey ice cream, a tomato squeeze bottle and jandals, which is another name for sandals.
Charles and his wife Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, were joined by Governor-General Sir Jerry Mateparae, who was also celebrating his birthday, and 64 other people from the country who were born on November 14.
Although the majority of participants came from New Zealand, one partygoer, Lenny Cheah, flew from San Diego and said he was happy to spend money on attending the one-off event.
He said: 'I wouldn't have missed this for the world. It was the coolest thing. I didn't know what to think when I found out I was coming here. It was like winning the lottery.'
