Prince Charles Has a Run-In With One of New Zealand's Native Creatures
The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall are currently on a tour of New Zealand, and during a visit to the Orokonui Ecosanctuary, they got up close and personal with some of the country's native animals . . . a bit too close, in fact. At first glance it's easy to assume that it was the tuatara Charles was holding that caused a commotion, but it was actually a bumblebee that caused both him and Camilla to break out in a fit of giggles. Whilst holding the native reptile, a bee flew straight into Charles's suit, causing him to drop his new friend and quickly brush it away. As one savvy park employee commented, "I can see what's going to be on social media later!" See a video capturing the moment at the end of our gallery, then remind yourself of the cute moment that happened the last time a member of the royal family was unimpressed with Antipodean wildlife!
