Preparing to visit Melbourne, Prince William wins the hearts of Australians Print E-mail
Written by ACM   
Wednesday, 20 January 2010

Prince William continued his Australian visit today attracting large crowds – many obviously with origins outside Europe - to the Royal Botanic Gardens. There clearly was a remarkable warmth between the people and the Prince.

As a commissioned officer in the British Army, the Royal Navy and the Royal Air Force, he also visited fellow soldiers who had served in Afghanistan at the Holdsworthy military base.   

Tomorrow Prince William will go to Melbourne, fulfilling many public commitments in what is described as a private visit.

"Prince William will be welcomed to the State that was named after his great-great-great-great grandmother, Queen Victoria," ACM’s Victorian Convenor Mr Brett Hogan said.

"The Royal Family's ongoing concern for the families of the Victorian bushfire victims as we approach the one year anniversary of this terrible event is acknowledged and appreciated by many Victorians,” he continued.

"The Crown is as relevant today as it was 200 years ago."

"It represents a living link with Victoria's history, but also helps to hold our political and legal system together."

"I hope that Victoria's republicans will do us all a favour and press the pause button on their tiresome campaign while the Prince is in town."

ACM’s National Convener Professor David Flint agreed. “It is a pity that the national leader of the republican movement has indulged in a series of  mean-spirited attacks on the Prince.  It is to be hoped that Victoria’s republicans distance themselves from this.”

“While some politicians may feel under an obligation to declare their republicanism even during a Royal Visit, this too often seems to be no more than an empty declaration void of any meaning,” he said. “Rather than interest in constitutional governance, this seems intended to indicate conformity with some party platform and to reassure the elites who are actually interested in this issue.  This will not impress rank and file Australians.”
