Their Royal Highnesses were officially welcomed to Australia with a Ceremonial Welcome in Brisbane, featuring a 21 gun salute and a Royal guard of honour.

On the Gold Coast, The Prince opened the Commonwealth Games on behalf of Her Majesty The Queen, before continuing to Bundaberg, Cairns, Nhulunbuy and Darwin.
