Charles and Camilla coming to Australia

We were hoping for William and Kate, but the palace has confirmed Prince Charles and Camilla will visit Australia next year as part of the queen's Diamond Jubilee celebrations.

To mark Queen Elizabeth's 60 years on the throne, members of the royal family will visit every realm, Commonwealth Country, Crown Dependency and British Overseas Territory.

Charles and his wife will tour Australia, Canada, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea. The heir to the throne will also travel to the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man alone.

Prince William and Kate, who were rumoured to be coming Down Under, will instead tour Malaysia, Singapore, the Solomon Islands and Tuvalu.

Party-loving Prince Harry is likely to be very happy with his itinerary, which includes Belize, Jamaica and the Bahamas.

Prince Andrew will visit India, while Prince Edward and his wife Sophie will tour Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Gibraltar, Grenada, Montserrat, St Kitts and Nevis, St Lucia, St Vincent and the Grenadines and Trinidad and Tobago.

Princess Anne will travel to Mozambique and Zambia, Prince Michael of Kent the Falkland Islands and Uganda, and the Duke of Gloucester the British Virgin Islands and Malta.

Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip will stay closer to home, touring the UK including trips to Wales, Scotland and multiple destinations in England.

The monarch and her husband completed a very successful tour of Australia earlier this year, which included visits to Canberra, Brisbane, Melbourne and Perth.
