Prince Harry spent most of his visit to Perth visiting SAS troops and their families at the Campbell Barracks in Swanbourne. He met past and present members of the unit, toured the base and joined families of fallen SAS members killed in the line of duty to lay wreaths in their memory.

The commanding officer of the SASR, known only as Lieutenant Colonel G, told Perth Now  that the prince's visit was an honour and a privilege.

"Prince Harry knows what it means to serve his nation on operations and most importantly what it means to the families of those serving,'' Lieutenant Colonel G said.

 

"Families play a critical role for those serving in the SASR and indeed the whole of the ADF, and we are thankful that the families of some of our serving, former and fallen members were able to be here today.''
