Commonwealth Games: Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall criticised for 'disrespectful' behaviour

Pat Allison waits to meet the royals in Buindaberg

Of course, an Australian reported would be the first to question Queen Elizabeth's son about transporting his own toilet seat while on the move, an inquiry especially relevant Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla travelled from the United Kingdom to Queensland on Wednesday, April 4th to open the Commonwealth Games and a brief royal tour of our golden soils.

Interview over. Jase then turned his attention to Charles' wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall - again forgoing formal titles to address her on a first-name basis.

Camilla has been criticised for reading a magazine during a speech by Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games Corporation chairman Peter Beattie at Cararra Stadium.

Commonwealth Games Federation president Louise Martin said if Camilla came across as bored, it was "not true".

"She was absolutely shattered".

"She'd just got off the plane in the morning, was on a full duty right through and the only time she'd got a break was when she sat in a auto from Brisbane down to (Gold Coast)".

TV cameras regularly caught the Duchess of Cornwall thumbing through the Games programme to pass the time as the show unfolded in front of her.

It is a busy time for Charles, with eldest son William and wife Kate shortly expecting their third child and Prince Harry preparing to marry USA actress Meghan Markle in May. She really wanted to go to sleep.

"I remember you used to follow my dad around asking him questions and I remember you stirring the milk", said Jane, as Charles smiled and laughed. "She just felt it is a really important gig", a source told the Express.

Charles and Camilla wandered among hundreds of well-wishers who had risked rain to see them before visiting a Brisbane children's hospital.
