Australia Day 3: Prince William Ends 5-day Down Under Tour
Overall another very successful tour for Prince William, as he completes his “disaster tour” of Australia & New Zealand.
William flew into flood-stricken Australian towns even as heavy rain pummeled another part of the country. He was welcomed by hundreds of people in Kerang town in Victoria state, one of dozens across Australia that were inundated earlier this year by the country’s worst flooding in decades.
He was welcomed by screaming schoolgirls, and even got a marriage proposal, for which he replied: “I’m sorry, you’re too late.” He also got a football kickabout with locals.
William leaves for the UK tonight after another very impressive tour that’s sure to boost the monarchy’s popularity Down Under.

Invasion of the Harry hunters
Now that William is off the market, this makes for a very interesting read about wide-eyed girls dedicating their days on bagging Prince Harry
As she squeezes through the crowds of inebriated young aristocrats at London’s Mahiki nightclub, Courtney Fleming tries to stay focused. The men are enticing, the beach music is infectious, and the “treasure-chest cocktail” foisted upon her by well-bred clubgoers is plenty strong. But she has come tonight on a mission that brooks no distraction.
The objective: find, seduce, and eventually marry Prince Harry.
This is no schoolgirl whim. The California Anglophile spent days before this trip poring over British gossip blogs to identify the hottest royal hangouts. Fleming is part of a small but resolute group of American “Harry hunters,” aspiring princesses who are crossing the ocean in hopes of capturing the redheaded royal’s heart (and the tiara that comes with it). Some rely on semesters abroad to lend an air of social normalcy to their excursions, while others simply count their pennies—or lean on their parents—to fund extended vacations in Britain. But the goal is always the same: to live happily ever after with a prince of the realm.
