Prince Charles cool in Fiji's heat
March 11, 2005

Britain's Prince Charles looked relaxed but slightly overheated as he greeted dozens of royal fans at a marina on the west coast of Fiji's main island.

Looking casual in a tan linen jacket and a broad brimmed hat, Charles chatted and shook hands with some of the dozens of well-wishers who waited for more than half an hour in Fiji's blazing sun to greet him.

Charles then boarded an open-roofed motor boat to take a three-hour tour of a coral reef conservation project at Castaway Island, near the western city of Nadi.

Before boarding the boat, the heir to Britain's throne complimented 35-year-old tourism worker Maria Penjueli on the yellow and white frangipani flower in her hair, and said he was enjoying his trip to Fiji.

"It's lovely, but I'm trying to get used to the temperature," he said of Nadi's 32 degree highs and stifling humidity.

Later, Penjueli said she felt honoured to meet the prince.

"We know that he's someone great," she said.

"He's like one of our great chiefs."

Fiji gained independence in 1970 after nearly a century as part of the British Empire. The Pacific Island nation is still a member of the Commonwealth.

After his arrival on Thursday, Charles sampled kava, Fiji's mildly narcotic drink, and was presented with a roasted pig and a whale tooth - a Fijian symbol of wealth - in an elaborate welcoming ceremony in which villagers dressed in grass skirts and floral sashes danced and chanted.

The prince was welcomed by Fijian President Ratu Josefa Iloilo and later had a private meeting with Prime Minister Laisenia Qarase.

Charles is making his first official visit to Fiji since 1974, but is spending less than 30 hours there before flying back to Britain late on Friday.
