Prince Charles and his wife, the Duchess of Cornwall, broke off from their honeymoon Thursday to carry out their first royal engagement as a married couple -- opening a playground.

The royal couple, who carry the titles Duke and Duchess of Rothesay in Scotland, were met by cheering crowds when they arrived at Monaltrie Park in Ballater, near the royal estate of Balmoral.

The former Camilla Parker Bowles wore a pink coat with tartan trim and shawl while the heir to the throne sported traditional Highland dress, including a kilt.

The couple, who were married in a civil ceremony Saturday at Windsor, west of London, are honeymooning at Birkhall, Charles' home on the Balmoral estate.
