Prince Charles's wife Camilla not bored at ceremony, insists Commonwealth Games president

  • Two policemen have been rushed to hospital after they were involved in a high speed crash while escorting Prince Charles and Camilla to the Commonwealth Games opening ceremony

Prince Charles, now visiting Australia with his wife Duchess Camilla, has been forced to address suggestions that he carries his own toilet seat everywhere he travels, a rumour started in yet another unauthorised biography about the heir to the throne, set to be released in ahead of the Prince's 70th birthday in November this year.

"Is it true that you carry your own toilet seat when you travel?" the host asked. "Oh, don't believe all that cr*p".

Earlier, Commonwealth Games organisers have defended Camilla for looking jaded during Wednesday's opening ceremony at the Gold Coast, saying the Duchess of Cornwall was "shattered" from her travel schedule rather than disinterested in the show.

The Prince of Wales was seen joking with Camilla, telling her: "Don't go in, darling".

While there, he was asked about claims made in a new biography, that he carries his own toilet seat everywhere he goes.

The visit starting Wednesday equals his mother Queens Elizabeth II's tally of 16 royal tours of the former British colony and comes as the monarch winds back her worldwide travel commitments.

In his speech, Prince Charles said "My wife and I could not be more delighted to be able to join all of you here on the Gold Coast this evening - and the many millions of you who are watching from your homes across the Commonwealth". The crowd also flocked to the Old Government House where General Peter Cosgrove personally greeted them.

For the first time in Australian history, both the prime minister and the opposition leader agree that the British monarch should be replaced by an Australian citizen as the Australian head of state.
