Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, have wrapped up their royal visit to Canada, marking the Queen's Platinum Jubilee. 

The tour kicked off in St. John's before the heir to the throne and future Queen's Consort visited Ottawa and the Northwest Territories where they were met by crowds of fans.

They also faced calls by Indigenous leaders for an apology from the Queen over the monarchy's role in Canada's residential school system.
