Cape Town - All Black superstar Sonny Bill Williams thoroughly enjoyed their victory parade through the streets of New Zealand's capital city on Friday.

Tens of thousands of people lined the streets of Wellington for the final leg of a victory tour that has already taken in Auckland and Christchurch.

The rugby-mad nation is still euphoric over the victory that made the All Blacks the first team to win back-to-back Rugby World Cups and delivered a record third title.

Williams took time out to snap a selfie in front of adoring fans.

Britain's Prince Charles was also there, delighting locals with a joke about losing finalists Australia.

Charles and wife Camilla were supposed to enjoy a rest day on their tour to New Zealand but instead joined in the victory parade.

Addressing the team, Charles drew raucous applause when he played up New Zealand's rivalry with the next stop on his tour Down Under, Australia, who the All Blacks trounced 34-17 in the final.

"We've just travelled, what, 18 800 km, to come here to congratulate the best rugby team in the world," he said.

"But, ladies and gentlemen, what the hell am I going to say to the Aussies next week?"

Williams also tweeted a picture of himself with the Prince:
