Possible Visit to Australia in 2010 in the Works for Prince William
A visit to Australia, with Melbourne in particular, is believed to be in the works for the second-in-line to the British throne, Prince William. While nothing has been confirmed by Clarence House, the Prince himself spilled the beans during a recent visit to the Tower of London.
Speaking and posing for photos with two Australian teens and their mother, Prince William asked where the trio was from. Upon receiving the reply of Melbourne, he told them, “I’m coming to Melbourne soon.”
The Telegraph reports that the visit could possibly take place in the coming English spring, which would make it somewhere between March and May 2010 (which would mean the Prince would need to pack a nice warm sweater and also a sun hat, given the brilliant ‘four-seasons-in-a-day’ Melbournian autumn). It is highly unlikely though that an official visit would be confirmed by Clarence House until just prior to the visit, for security reasons.
The proposed trip would be the Prince’s first solo official visit to Australia. William has only been to Australia once before, as a toddler in 1983 when he accompanied his parents Prince Charles and Princess Diana on their royal tour.Filed under British Royals
