Richard Palmer is someone you give a lot of time to when it comes to W&K. His is the article that says support for Charles being the next King of Australia is collapsing.

I agree with the positive images. We always see positive images when senior royals go on tour.

An article from OzHarvest, the food collection charity Camilla visited today in Sydney, about her visit:

I spotted that headline as well. I think its a great shame that no British royal reporter went on this trip.

I do give a lot of time to RP because he is prepared to answer questions etc and doesn't get narky when challenged/disagreed with; but I don't always agree with him.

Richard Palmer was back-pedalling a little on his Twitter page, probably in response to the huge crowds seen today in Sydney. He's saying now that he thinks it's (presumably an Australian republic) 'some time away'.

I think the mistake that was made is not grasping that the poll was done by a Republican group who also issued a press release focussing on their cause.

I should think that eventually it will have its own HoState but hopefully will stay in the Commonwealth. I don't think that its about Charles, its about the country wanting to choose its H of State. If the Government hadn't goofed on the referendum question in 1999, HMQ would not still be Head of State.

It has never been suggested that Australia, as a republica, wouldn't apply to remain in the Commonwealth (we like being top dog at the Commonwealth Games - which is all the Commonwealth means to most Aussies anyway). It should be noted that as a republic membership isn't automatic and we would have to actually apply for membership which means it is possible that the other countries would decide to exclude us for some reason e.g. our human rights record.

Rob Jobson is on the trip. He said there are about a dozen or so (compared to the 100s who were accredited for William and Kate's tour down under last year) which is why there has been minimal coverage here and elsewhere.

Bingo! For me, anyway, it's not about personalities, just about wanting an Australian Head of State. There are many different flavours of republican in this country. I am very fond of Charles, and always have been. And I am fond of Camilla. And I respect HM. I'm just not keen on William or Kate. There's no doubt we'd want to remain in the Commonwealth. We'd expect to.

I think the Brits made a bit mistake not sending more reporters for this tour. Charles has had a long relationship with Australia and has a good following here. Our relationship with the BRF is a complicated one, seemingly too complex for the British media folk to comprehend.

Newspaper send journalists based on supply and demand.

When William and Kate were in Australia the Daily Mail had them on the front page 10 times with 3 separate souvenir editions.

There isn't anywhere near that much interest this time around with C&C so no British reporters need to be there on the ground.

But who determines/creates demand? Isn't it he papers? Who decided there would be souvenir editions of William & Kates hols here? And do the Brits buy souvenir editions of the Royals' hols in another country? Why? The Royals live in England and the Brits get to see them all the time. I don't get it. I would have thought it would be the people in the countries being visited that would want the souvenir edition, but that the Brits would want news, and thus need reporters following the tour to report that news.

Obviously I know nothing about how newspapers work.

If C&C's tour is popular in New Zealand and Australia the local papers can cover it as much as they want.

Camilla can be on the 24 hour cable networks if there is demand.

For British papers they can just pick up what the wires provide I suppose.

If the Mail or Telegraph thought it could move papers covering C&C then they would be covered I guess.

How many of the 100s that were accredited for W&K actually wanted to capture images of George?

How many of them went to Australia because of George?

How many of them wanted to sell stories of George in 2014 vs William in 1983?

Rudolph, this is not a popularity contest or a competition about who is most at the front pages of British newspapers. You and some other posters always point out that Charles and Camilla isn't as popular as William and Kate and you're right.

Charles is 66, and therefore the media don't find him interesting anymore. The reason to why he's been and still is unpopular among many in the public is because he has been a controversial Prince of Wales, he has received much criticism from the media and has the Diana baggage, but he has done/does much to improve people's lives. Even in his age, he's very god with people and was as popular with the public/media as William in the 70s and 80s both before and after he married Diana, and I think he will be an excellent King.

Camilla is 68, she's never been a beauty and therefore the media isn't very interested in her. Another reason to why she's been and still is unpopular with many in the media/public is because of Diana, but Camilla is kind, caring, warm, good with people and almost everyone who meets her likes her, and I think she will be an excellent Queen/Princess consort.

William, Kate (who I like very much) and Harry are young, handsome/beautiful, have the superstar factor and is very good with people etc is of course more popular with the media/public. This is quite natural, and something else would have been strange.

Was it more the cause of W&K playing lets recreate the 80s more than W&K on their own merits that caused the interest?

Would the interest had been the same if George was left in the U.K.?

If C&C brought the other C (Charlotte) with them, there would have been more interest than W&K's visit with George.

Children bring attention.

William, Kate and Harry always gets a lot of media coverage when they visit Canada, Australia, New Zealand etc with or without George and Charlotte.

Queen Camilla, It's great that you like Charles and Camilla (I does too), but I also like William and Kate, and you seems to always write negatively about them.

How is it writing negatively if I'm asking if George was the reason some of the media went to Australia?

George accompanying them was not a surprise.

fyi, If you read my posts you will find most about Catherine are positive and in defense of her.

Isn't Camilla a lovely person.

Four of the contestants from her son's Australian TV show, "The Hot Plate", were on breakfast television this morning.

The Duchess of Cornwall has invited them to attend a birthday party she is throwing for Prince Charles tomorrow.

I often wonder about how little we, the public, know about The DOC. What do any of us know? Has she ever given an interview? There was no engagement interview that I recollect?
