Prince Charles Fires Back at Crazy Rumor in an Unexpected Way!

Prince Charles Duchess of Cornwall

Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall work the small but lively crowd at Brisbane's Botanic Gardens on Wednesday

The visit equals his mother Queen Elizabeth II's tally of 16 royal tours of the former British colony and comes as the 91-year-old monarch winds back her global travel commitments.

For the first time in the 117 years since Australia became a self-governing country, both the prime minister and the opposition leader agree that the British monarch should be replaced by an Australian citizen as the Australian head of state.

Express claims the duchess will travel home on a commercial flight to London, while Prince Charles is scheduled to travel to North Queensland and the Northern Territory, finishing the tour in Vanuatu on April 10th.

The Prince of Wales will then take part in official proceedings, held on the distillery lawn. I didn't see the facial expressions etc but the comments between the Duchess, Charles and myself - she was asking questions all day. "I look forward to seeing him again", Turnbull added.

Commonwealth Games organisers defended Prince Charles's wife Camilla on Thursday after criticism that she looked bored at the opening ceremony.

Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said she was excited to host today's community event and welcome His Royal Highness to the city.

Beattie also insisted the royal couple were enthusiastic during the night, where Prince Charles officially opened the Games with a message from his mother, Queen Elizabeth.

Jane - the oldest of the siblings - was 10 when Charles would visit.

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.
