Aussie sisters reunite with Prince Charles

The visit starting Wednesday equals his mother Queens Elizabeth II's tally of 16 royal tours of the former British colony and comes as the monarch winds back her global travel commitments.

Prince Charles and his wife Camilla Parker Bowles have landed in Australia for a trip Camilla reportedly joined Charles on in the hopes of helping further his chances at landing a royal title. The British crown's power in Australia is largely symbolic, and while the Queen remains hugely popular, the monarchy is viewed by some as an anachronistic colonial relic. Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said he was looking forward to catching up with the prince, whom he called a charming and knowledgeable man.

"I've met Prince Charles on several occasions over the years and we always get on very well".

Games organisers insisted that the duchess was not bored by the three-hour opening ceremony after it left her "shattered" and needing "to go to sleep".

He said, "My own what?"

Prince Charles isn't the only member of the royal family now facing revealing claims from an unauthorized biography. The crowd also flocked to the Old Government House where General Peter Cosgrove personally greeted them.

Charles will visit northern Queensland state, the neighboring Northern Territory and Vanuatu before returning to Britain next week.

Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, has been publicly shamed for her apparent lack of interest in the Commonwealth Games opening ceremony.

"It appears the prince is unable to answer this question", the Australian Republic Movement, which extended the invitation, said in a statement last month.
