Charles and Camilla cap their Australia visit


Britain's Prince Charles and wife Camilla wrapped up their six-day tour of Australia and New Zealand in Perth Sunday, attending a church service with prayers for victims of the Paris attacks, where they joined hundreds of parishioners at St George Cathedral in Western Australia's capital in the morning. The prince was the first member of the Royal Family to visit Australia since republic Malcolm Turnbull took over the government. He arrived last Tuesday for the World War II commemoration. The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall honored Australia's war dead by laying wreaths during the national Remembrance Day ceremony at the Australian War Memorial. This was followed by a meeting with Turnbull, who , had no choice but to begrudgingly admit that the Prince of Wales will one day become King of Australia – unless constitutional change happens. On Saturday, the heir to the throne celebrated his 67th birthday Down Under  with a toast and a downpour, where he made a speech  extended his sympathies to the people of France following the attacks on November 13th 2015.
