Footage of Queen Rania's visit to the school, and the King and Queen's State Luncheon at Government House, has just been shown on the early evening TV news here in Sydney.

I'm amazed at how the Queen could keep speaking to a child with the camera so close to her face.

This may be, or may become, available on the internet - Channel Ten's "Tenplay" may have it.

Other Australian TV channels may post footage also - Channel Nine's "ninemsn" and Channel Seven's "Yahoo7".

SBS may give this some coverage also as the evening goes on.

There will not be a dinner Lilo their visit to Australia ended on 25 November. Now they are enjoying 3 day-free until tomorrow when they start NZ visit. I think their visit to Australia has been very unusual no State dinner, only a few engagements...

Me thinks this is more of an official visit and not a state visit. No state dinner, no return dinner, very odd for a state visit.

i also think this visit was not well prepared.

WreathOfLaurels 11-28-2016 02:19 AM

Well, I feel spoilt, two royal visits that aren't the ruddy Windsors in a row. Looking forward to this and I hope the inevitable protesters don't embarrass their majesties too much. John Key must be loving this - he adores royalty.

Sounds like Rania won't be coming to NZ...
