Royals rack up $19,000 bill during Australian tour

3AW Mornings

Monarchists are defending a royal tour where Prince Charles, wife Camilla and their entourage racked up nearly $19,000 during a visit to country NSW earlier this year.

It’s reported $18,916 was charged to taxpayers for chauffeur driven cars, dinners and boozy lunches.

David Flint, from the Australians for Constitutional Monarchy, said the royals are not paid during their visit.

“When any member of the royal family comes to Australia when they do things for Australia, they are not paid, they do it for service,” he said.

“It’s up to the government to decide where to put the support group which has to include Australians.

“They all give a lot of their time for Commonwealth activities.”
