Auckland: A New Zealand man has been charged with planning to assault Prince Charles during a royal visit to the Pacific nation.
Charles and his wife Camilla are on a six-day tour of New Zealand, the last leg of their Pacific tour marking Queen Elizabeth II`s 60th Jubilee.
Police say they arrested a "known anti-royalist" yesterday near a downtown Auckland venue where the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall were due to appear. Police say the royal couple had not yet arrived at the venue and were never in any danger.

Police say the 74-year-old man was carrying an item but they would not say what it was. He is due to appear in the Auckland District Court today.
