And they're here! Prince Charles and Camilla kick off their Commonwealth Games' tour of Queensland

Prince Charles and Camilla create a huge stir in Brisbane

Charles and Camilla will attend the Games opening ceremony where the Prince will officially open the competition on behalf of his mother, the Queen.

"But none of that is to diminish the commitment and sense of duty that Prince Charles displays towards Great Britain and, as constitutional arrangements stand, towards Australia".

Around 1000 flag-waving and cheering royal fans have greeted Prince Charles and his wife Camilla to Brisbane before the prince opens the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games later tonight.

While the queen is an immensely popular among Australians, her heir is less so.

"Frankly, I wish them all the best and the only thing I say to them is make sure you buy tickets and come to the Games when you're finished".

The Palace confirmed a year ago that Charles would represent the Queen at the Commonwealth Games, and although it was initially thought Camilla would skip the whirlwind tour, Clarence House later confirmed the pair would make the trip together.

Camilla donned an elegant, wide-brimmed Philip Treacy hat to match her pale green Fiona Clare dress before heading back outside for the official ceremony, which included a 21-gun salute fired from across the river at Kangaroo Point.

They will then proceed to the Lady Cilento Children's Hospital.

On Thursday, Prince Charles and Camilla will visit the Athletes' Village prior to the presenting the medals at the swimming finals at the Gold Coast Aquatic Centre.

Former Labor Prime Minister Keating, in office from 1991 to 1996, wrote in a British newspaper on Sunday: 'I have no doubt he believes Australia should be free of the British monarchy and that it should make its own way in the world'.

All three are ardent royalists and are really happy that Prince Charles will be Australia's King one day, and that they have had the chance to meet him.

Mr Turnbull has also previously spoken about the possibility of giving Australians their say on whether to scrap the monarchy after the Queen dies.
