Prince William Visits Australia (Day 2)

Prince William’s second day in Australia was as busy (or even busier!) as the first. On Wednesday (Australian time), he continued his stay in Sydney, meeting more members of the government and the community.

Prince William took part in a live firing exercise with the Australian Army’s 3rd Battalion Royal Australian Regiment at the Holsworthy army base. The visit with members of the military was William’s idea.

After the visit with the military, Prince William turned his attention to the crowds gathered at the Royal Botanic Gardens. Hundreds of people went out to see the young prince, who is on his second trip to the country. The first was in 1983, during a  tour with his parents when he was just 9 months old.

William then spoke during a barbecue lunch at Victoria Lodge, with the Sydney Opera House forming a gorgeous backdrop. He was accompanied at the barbecue by New South Wales Premier Kristina Keneally. After lunch, Prince William took a high speed boat ride around Sydney Harbor.

Our young prince has definitely filled his trip down under. But we’re not just getting official business news. Daily Express’s Richard Palmer, who has been on-site for Prince William’s NZ and Australia trips, revealed that Prince William might have hinted at something regarding him and Kate Middleton. He was asked by one of the crowd about when he’s getting married. His answer?

“I keep saying it: wait and see.”

What do you think that means? Do we dare to speculate that we don’t have to wait a long time for something very wonderful indeed? I’ll keep the bubbly nice and chilled, just in case! ;)
