Tolkien fan Prince Charles marked his 64th birthday with a tour of Middle Earth on Wednesday, at the New Zealand studio behind Peter Jackson's latest Hobbit movie.
Prince Charles meets with Mark Hadlow who plays the dwarf Dori in the upcoming movie "The Hobbit" during his visit to Peter Jackson's Weta Workshop, in Wellington on November 14, 2012.
