Photos have been released overnight of Prince Harry's suprise visit to an Aboriginal community in Western Australia.

Too late to make my Friday morning newpaper here in Sydney, but covered by breakfast TV.

The community was unaware of the impending visit that was about an hour in length, and the Prince was also reported as doing a spot of fishing.

Very nice photos - probably up on various newsites by now.

What a mate! Prince Harry poses with locals in remote community of Wuggubun in WA's Kimberley - ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

I think the Telegraph also has released the same group photo and a couple of lines.

I've never met the attitude that you describe and because of my age I've met and known many Aussie servicemen from WW2. I married into an Australian family that has been here since before Gold Rush days. My husband's uncle was a prisoner at Changi and all the brothers served.

Yet I was welcomed into the family, and Harry has been welcomed with big crowds to Australia. As he and his father will be when they go to Galllipoli later.
Was that the one about the nurses? That wasn't so bad.

Mahler, it was a new TV series about the Gallipoli campaign, made for the 100th anniversary, which is of course this year. Anzac Day is of course huge here in Australia and I think Channel 9 here had big hopes for it, but it flopped in the ratings.

I'm glad Harry had a chance to do this, and the community to see him. The photos are terrific.

It's being reported that the "ginger ninja" Prince Harry may now be back in Darwin after his big bush patrol with NORFORCE.

Unmarked police cars and federal police have been sighted at the Darwin RAAF Base, and there are rumours he has been seen back at Robertson Barracks.

More photos of Prince Harry in Australia are now out - aiming his gun, in a military helicopter, giving first-aid, in a wheel-chair Aussie Rules football game.

The MailOnline has many, many very good photos currently.



P.S. Sunday morning - video footage also being broadcast on different Australian TV channels now.

The one of him standing on something, on tiptoe, to see into the cockpit - we have seen him do that before when looking at helicopters. It's very charming and little boyish. Heck, he's cute.

Don’t want to disturb your daydreaming but that’s the other guy... Harry’s not standing on his toes.

Harry on field patrol, with what looks to me to be a more recent version of the Australian service rifle, the Steyer AUG: Prince Harry on patrol Down Under | Royalista
But isn't that a British combat uniform he is wearing? The Australian is quite distinct, unless it is being replaced?

Yeah, yeah, I know, I'm a nerd.

I don't know how much actual soldiering Harry is doing. The photos are nice but it looks more like a Tom Cruise film than a tactical military exercise.

This has always been the dilemma/debate, how much of Harry's army career is/was PR and how much was actually being a soldier.

William faced the same questions when he served in the RAF

I am not sure how much can be gleaned from these photos, but I can only imagine that Harry is doing what the other soldiers with him are doing.

Well, that was cruel. I'm also going blind.

There's an overload of cuteness all round! Harry was with the other soldiers in the outback, learning survival skills. He seems to be getting on very well with his fellow soldiers. If there was more of these sort of field exercises and less of the desk Harry probably wouldn't have left.

Hi Muhler - yes, that would be a British uniform Prince Harry is wearing.

It was reported here that he would be in British military attire throughout his stay in Oz as he is a British soldier just attached, or seconded, to the Australian forces.



P.S. If there is anything in Denmark about CP Mary at the Anzac Service in Copenhagen - could you do a post?

I haven't seen anything about it on our TV or in our papers yet. At best we may just get a photo.

Thanking you in advance.

The picture of Harry holding the little kid is the best. It looks so natural and he looks so comfortable. I bet it was his idea to visit the aboriginal community too. I know a lot of people are saying Harry isn't doing everything the other soldiers are doing. If you talk to any of the soldiers that has been with him, he does what they do and they don't have nothing bad to say about him. He is royal and the firm has to allow some pics to please the media, even if Harry wasn't all for it. Harry has always took his military career serious.

Thanks, Sun Lion.

Don't worry, anything Mary does is covered in the Danish media. And that is great because few Danes know about Gallipoli and how formative it was for New Zealand and Australia and their national characters. - And Turkey too, for that matter...
