Not* Travel with a Royal Toilet Seat

Two policemen have been rushed to hospital after they were involved in a high speed crash while escorting Prince Charles and Camilla to the Commonwealth Games opening ceremony Prince Charles, Camilla land in Australia for key visit

Alongside her husband and heir to the British throne, Prince Charles, Camilla was front and centre at the opening ceremony in front of around 35,000 people at Carrara Stadium. That campaign was defeated at a referendum in 1999 in which most Australians voted to maintain the status quo.

The Prince of Wales will then take part in official proceedings, held on the distillery lawn.

In his speech, Prince Charles said "My wife and I could not be more delighted to be able to join all of you here on the Gold Coast this evening - and the many millions of you who are watching from your homes across the Commonwealth".

In 1966 a 17-year-old Prince Charles spent six months studying at Geelong Grammar School's Timbertop campus, in the Victorian Alps. "As far as the republic is concerned, or Australia's constitutional arrangements, as the prince has always said and indeed the queen has always said, it's a matter for Australians", Turnbull told Australian Broadcasting Corp. on Tuesday. He's a very thoughtful and considered and charming person to meet.

"He probably didn't remember him, but I'm sure he (Dad) thought it was nice of him to remember the time back at Timbertop", Ms Ryan said.

Prince Charles and Camilla's visit to Australia came just days after a poll revealed that the residents wanted to end the monarchy in their country.

Upon arrival, the couple was greeted in Brisbane by Governor-General Peter Cosgrove with a 21-gun salute.

Earlier, Commonwealth Games organisers have defended Camilla for looking jaded during Wednesday's opening ceremony at the Gold Coast, saying the Duchess of Cornwall was "shattered" from her travel schedule rather than disinterested in the show.
