Tucker fit to feed a duchess

Townsville Bulletin - - NEWS -

PRINCE Charles and Camilla will visit Aus­tralia again, with the lure of fine food and wine and friendly peo­ple ap­par­ently enough for the duchess to con­quer her ha­tred of fly­ing.

The heir to the throne and the duchess ( above) have an­nounced they will make their sec­ond tour of Aus­tralia and New Zealand in Novem­ber.

The royal cou­ple last vis­ited in Novem­ber 2012 on a twoweek tour to mark the Queen’s Di­a­mond Ju­bilee.

That was a five- state visit in six days but this trip could be a lit­tle more re­laxed.

Clarence House de­clined to re­veal their itin­er­ary but in a rare pub­lic ad­mis­sion at an Aus­tralia Day food and wine fair in cen­tral Lon­don, Camilla said she hated fly­ing but was pre­pared to make a re­turn long- haul flight to Aus­tralia for wagyu beef and Barossa and Tas­ma­nian wines.

“I hate fly­ing but I hope to come on many more oc­ca­sions, es­pe­cially now I’ve tasted all this won­der­ful food and de­li­cious wine,” she said.

“I love the food and wine in­dus­try, I have a son who is a foodie, who writes a lot about food, my fa­ther was in the wine busi­ness so they are two things very, very close to my heart.”
