The Prince of Wales and Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, had some car trouble during their official visit to Papua New Guinea, abandoning their vehicle after it broke down in Port Moresby, The Telegraph reported.
When their black Mercedes wouldn't start, the royal couple waited a few minutes and then transferred to a silver Range Rover.
Earlier in the day, Prince Charles visited the Hohola Youth Development Centre, The Telegraph reported, while Camilla visited the Haus Ruth Women's Refuge.
The couple then reunited at Remembrance Park for a wreath-laying ceremony.
After changing cars, Prince Charles and his wife boarded a plane for Queensland, Australia, for the next leg of their Diamond Jubilee tour, which is scheduled to last for six days, according to The Telegraph. The royal couple will also visit New Zealand to mark the Queen's 60-year reign.
