He's going to miss his family terribly, I know I do when my trips are over a week long.

Prince Philippe is certainly seeing a lot of Australia. It is a shame that Princess Mathilde is not accompanying him as I would have loved to see them both together.

Hope he enjoys it because these economic missions are supposed to be reduced or eliminated.

The Crown Prince is ill , it is great of him to attend all the planned meetings.

Is Philippe ill? What does he have?

His plane departed from Perth to Sydney yesterday with six hour delay. The prince had to cancel all his appointments.
Bad luck haunts Prince Philippe throughout Australia

Thanks a lot for the explanation, stephanievl!

That's of course a real pity for all those who had hoped to meet him and to discuss their issues with the fellow travellers. It's surely impossible to make up leeway as to that extremely packed programme.
