    New Zealand's victorious AllBlack team was given a rapturous reception in their Capital City, Wellington, this morning. A big crowd gathered at New Zealand's parliament to welcome them on their start of a city wide drive through. Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall were also there to greet them. Charles raised a laugh when he said he travelled thousands of miles to be here but next week goes to Australia whose team New Zealand defeated for a first back to back win of the Rugby World Cup. "What the hell will I tell the Aussies?" quipped Prince Charles. It was a brilliant sunny day for the AllBlacks reception. Ireporter Dave Ross filed this raw video of the event.
