Australian and Canadian Tours
 
My notes are really a mess refering to those trips.
I will be very greatful if you could help me to put my photos in order (places they visit, date and what dress what diana wearing). I know this could be hard work!!! Thanks.;)

The tour to Australia/New Zealand was a really long one (almost one & a half months) so there should be lots of fun pictures!

I guess this is the start of the Down Under tour. On the evening of March 18 1983, Charles & Diana leave Heathrow airport.

Beautiful pics, gfg02! I'd never seen some of them before.
Do you know if they started canadian tour this day?

Christo's Girl 10-16-2006 07:24 PM

This Australian and New Zealand tour was one of those old fashioned royal tours which takes forever. I cannot imagine how hard it must have been for such a young family to be away from home. I love that picture though, it is a nice trip down memory lane.

Squidgy 10-18-2006 05:51 PM

I agree Christo's Girl - the Australian/New Zealand tour must have been a big challenge, especially to Diana. It was her first major tour & it was basically a 'baptism by fire'. A month & a half is a long time to be always "on show". We haven't seen a tour like this since from the younger members of the British RF, I don't think. They are probably a thing of the past.

Pilar, the dates for the Canadian tour are from June 14 to July 1 1983 - much shorter than the Australian/NZ tour.

March 20 1983 Arriving in Alice Springs for the start of the Australian trip

According to the London Times, after stepping off the plane, Diana spent four hours lounging by the pool at the home of a local businessman. She then went back to her hotel for a nap. Then she & Charles visited areas of flood damage in Alice Springs. Finally they attended a press reception. (I don't think we'll see pics from any of these events?).

Thank you very much for the pictures. It is so poignant to see the wonderful moments she shares with her boys. I wonder if they remember this day. She would be very proud of the way they have turned out.

Christo's Girl 12-25-2006 02:09 PM

I remember that Canadian visit. I believe it was the last time Diana ever visited Canada. Atleast it was full of good memories with her children.

Duchess 12-26-2006 07:42 AM

you're right christo...she only visited canada twice. the first visit was early in the marriage although i'm not sure of the dates.

Sammy 12-28-2006 04:52 PM

Diana visited Canada 3 times.
1983, 1986, and 1991.

Warren 12-29-2006 02:56 AM

We have a thread "Australian and Canadian Tour 1983", with just 8 posts. The Niagara Falls thread has 11 posts, 5 of which are "thanks for the pics" posts.
To bring the common material together I'll merge the two threads, and rename it "Australian & Canadian Tours".
