Australia welcomes visit by Their Royal Highnesses

14 October 2015

Prime Minister

I welcome today’s announcement from Clarence House confirming the visit of Their Royal Highnesses The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall to Australia from 10-15 November.

The visit will provide an opportunity to showcase Australia’s great regional and urban cities to The Prince and Duchess as they tour Adelaide and Tanunda, Canberra, Sydney, Albany and Perth.

While this will be Their Royal Highnesses’ second joint visit to Australia, it will be the Prince of Wales’ 15th visit and on behalf of the states and territories involved, I look forward to welcoming them back to Australia.

Their tour engagements will focus on areas that encompass Australia’s community, culture and conservation.

I look forward to joining Their Royal Highnesses to mark Remembrance Day in Canberra in our centenary year of the Anzacs.

Lucy and I will be delighted to welcome The Prince and Duchess and expect Australians will be eager to display our country’s hospitality to the Royal couple.
