ROYAL SPOTTING: Where to see Prince Charles today

Rebel Prince: The Power, Passion And Defiance Of Prince Charles was published recently and claims the heir to the British throne travels with "his orthopaedic bed, personal toilet seat, Kleenex Premium Comfort toilet paper, fresh linen a chest of drawers and two landscapes of the Scottish Highlands".

Charles is in Australia to represent his mother at the opening of the Commonwealth Games in neighboring Gold Coast city late Wednesday.

A reporter from Hit 105's Stav, Abby and Matt breakfast show has allegedly recorded his potty questioning of the Prince as he greeted fans at Brisbane's Botanical Gardens yesterday.

The Prince of Wales has pooh-poohed the rumour he takes his own personal toilet seat with him on overseas trips, telling interviewers in Australia: "Don't believe all that crap". We'll probably never know.

"It's one hell of a journey for a very short space of time but the Duchess loves Australia and the people so she is really looking forward to it, even though she doesn't relish the flying".

Before Prince Charles' speech, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, was caught out by the cameras paying little to no attention as Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games Corporation (GOLDOC) chairman Peter Beattie welcomed the royal couple to the Games.

Prince Harry and his then-wife, Meghan Markle, will be visiting Australia in October for the Invictus Games.
