HRH Prince of Wales and HRH Duchess of Cornwall touchdown at Sydney Airport

Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall arrive in Sydney, Australia; Australian Federal Police motorcade; Royals get ready for a big day in Sydney tomorrow...

This evening Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall (Camilla Parker-Bowles) touched down at Sydney Airport, having flown up from Melbourne.

The media appearance was delayed for well over an hour due to rain and storm conditions. No, mother nature was not doing any favours for the Royal's on their Sydney welcome.

Dozens of Australian Federal Police, spooks and security guards remained close and on alert to ensure that the Sydney Airport visit went according to plan...allowing for the reschedule with the rain.

After walking off the aircraft they where whisked away in a limousine via police motorcade in the direction of Sydney CBD, where they will spend overnight, ready for an early morning tomorrow which will include crossing Sydney Harbour on the Admiral's Barge to Garden Island, meeting Australian Defence Force and their families, a visit to the Museum of Contemporary Art and viewing football on Sydney's iconic Bondi Beach.

The day will finish off with The Diamond Jubilee Reception at the Sydney Opera House at 6.15pm, followed by a reception at Admiralty House hosted by the Governor General Quentin Bryce.

We wish the lovely couple a safe and enjoyable visit to Australia as they continue to explore the land down under, and thanks to everyone involved in organsing fair and balanced coverage on the royal visit to our shores.
