Prince Charles and Camilla have landed in Australia for the first time in three years for their Royal tour. The first stop? The Barossa Valley for a tipple!

The regal pair were greeted by thousands when they arrived into Tanunda, South Australia this morning, before they headed off to the famous wine region.

Fresh from their New Zealand tour, there was no signs of fatigue – you can clearly see they enjoyed the wine!

The Guardian reports the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall arrived in a RAAF Boeing 737 VIP jet about 1pm local time and were met by the governor general, Sir Peter Cosgrove, the South Australian governor, Hieu Van Le, and the state premier, Jay Weatherill.

Dressed in matching (perhaps not deliberately) outfits – Charles with a grey suit and purple tie, and Camilla with a crisp white jacket – they both wore a poppy on their lapels.

Local artworks and community projects were shown to the pair, before they took a tour of the Seppeltsfield winery.

This evening the Duchess of Cornwall will attend a roundtable on domestic violence with Rosie Batty, while Prince Charles will head to Bowden to see the development of the Prince’s Terraces, a housing project funded by his charity, the Prince’s Foundation for Building Community.

For Remembrance Day tomorrow, the Royals will meet Malcolm Turnbull and attend Memorial Day ceremonies at the Australian War Memorial in Canberra.

    • The Queen’s uncle had to abdicate because he married a divorced woman. Princess Margaret was not allowed by the Queen to marry Townsend. The love of her life because he was formerly married. Why is Bonnie Prince Charlie any different? His son (like Elizabeth) should be next in line.

  1. He should never be king and as for here she is not wanted by the English people William and Kate should be king and queen

    • We’ll see. Hopefully things will change. As an example, Edward wasn’t allowed to marry a divorcee and keep the throne.

    • This pair don’t really get much praise from the British public – if at all possible I reckon the majority would prefer William and Kate to rule. It is entirely possible that if Charles and Camilla become King and Consort it could seriously damage the monarchy.

    • I did read that the queen can bi pass Charles and give the throne to William. It is not a given birthright she has the ultimate say. Be good if that was true. Wouldn’t that be interesting. Camilla would not like that. IMO they don’t deserve to rule.

    • Hey folks you might not like them but I do think that Kate and William really need a few years to be together and be with their young family first before they get the reigns of the monarchy.

    • (Queen Victoria did very well coping with matters of state and her new marriage at the same time.)

    • You all need to look a little beyond what public opinion is. This man has done so much for the country a lot of historic London Buildings would now be unsightly 60ies buildings had he not stepped in. Yes he has made mistakes but can you say you haven’t.

  2. The dole bludging adulterers have arrived for their free holiday and feed on the backs of the colonies. Open your wallets Straya.. The Royal Malingerers have arrived.
