Queen's Children Heading To Australia, But Princess Anne Keeps It Low Key

It would be tough to top William, Kate and baby George’s recent visit down under and that may be the reason Princess Anne’s forthcoming visit to Australia won’t include any public appearances.

The Princess Royal will tour various charities and aid projects she supports in Australia during a four-day visit from October 21 before she continues on to Vanuatu, News Corp reports.

Queen Elizabeth II’s 64-year-old daughter last travelled to Australia in 2009, visiting Melbourne following the devastating Black Saturday bushfires.

“The Princess Royal is making a private trip to visit charities and organisations with which she is involved, including Save the Children and Riding for the Disabled,” a Queensland government spokesperson said.

“While not making any public appearances, her visit will be very much appreciated by the many people with whom she will spend time.”

In late November, her brother, 50 year-old Earl of Wessex Prince Edward, will also head to Australia on a Royal visit.
