Yes, but I mean about an hour. In New Zealand, was the map and are marked with the place and time in which the points were held and there is not that

I agree bertie. I understand Australian's desire for independence but I for one like the monarchy and our historical connection to it.

It looks like his New Zealand trip was a great success and now he's finally in Australia. Yaaaay!

It seems like the trip is going well for William. He also appears to have been received well in NZ and Aus.

[QUOTE=Charlotte1;1041800]
Polls aren’t all that accurate, [quote]I shortened your post quite a bit but thats what I said, only in a much shorter version. I read in one of the Ozzie papers that the reason some want him to skip Prince Charles is because he is young and the young have more ideas! The monarchists may be happy now but next year the visit will be forgotten, thats what happens.

I'm glad he and some of the Ozzies are enjoying the visit though, it would have been awful for him. I don't like the lack of formality though.

To the consternation of republicans, Prince William's "private" visit has been receiving blanket and extremely positive coverage on all the commercial TV networks here in Sydney.

He seems to have Charles' desire to stay out of the spotlight and just carry out his duty--but he combines that with a bit more charisma than I think Charles naturally has.

Australians seem to be really turning out for William's visit, more than Republicans maybe expected. I know that William has to finish his RAF training and all, but I think the royal family would be wise to use him for foreign visits while he's still young. Because right now I think that's why people are turning out to see him--he has youth, good looks and energy and he still reminds many people of Diana.

It's nice to see Will in Australia & New Zealand...it would have been even nicer if Harry was there.

He has warm, friendly and happy smiles. It is a genuine smile and he talks to people in deferent level at ease ... imo, which I see it is opposite from British royal senior. They are so stiff and protocol.

I like the way they're keeping this visit low-key. It enables William to truly get to know the people and experience the culture on a more intimate level by not having it all stiff and formal.

He's getting a taste of the culture too... literally. It's interesting how they cook the food in the ground with it covered. I'll bet it's delicious! http://www.gala.de/asset/Image/bilde...ownunder13.jpg

I think that anyone who has seen the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh on walk-about would say the same thing about them, although they haven't been in the habit of bending down to children. The Duke has lifted children up so that they can see the Queen, though.

That certainly hasn't been my experience of being in the crowds and having spoken to the Queen, Philip and Charles. All were warm, interested and friendly, and in the case of the Queen, very concerned about a 12 year old girl who was out in the cold waiting to see here only a week or so after having had my appendix removed. (My school had just changed their uniform and the tartan was the same as the Canadian Air Force and so we had had to get the Queen's permission to also use that tartan, which she gave. My headmistress requested that I wear that uniform to the airport, which also indicated to any police etc that I wasn't truanting to get a better view, seeing as the local schools were all lined up outside their schools and she drove past those schools to the centre of the town. She noticed the tartan and spoke to me about that and about why I wasn't with my school mates, and when told commented that I had better keep warm and not get too tired as she wouldn't want me to have to go back to hospital just because I wanted to see her - very personable and friendly - and that was in 1970 - the first time I spoke to her and on the three occasions since she has been just as warm as has Philip and Charles).

He seems very personable, and boasts a genuine interest in others.

I think it's great that he has been so well recieved. Perhaps the commonwealth may hang on after all.
