ACM, alone, has from time to time referred to an ignored bonus from Royal visits. 

Far outweighing any official advertising campaign, a Royal visit to Australia constitutes  an advertising campaign money can't buy. This is  ignored by petty republican politicians who then try to land a headline because of some question in a Senate estimates committee relating to such matters as the transport costs associated with a Royal visit.

In this report by Mark Ferguson on Channel 7 on 16 April 2014, Sara James from the leading United States television network, NBC says that "It's huge news in the US that the Royals down under."

Suzanne Gelhard from German Television indicates the enormous popularity of the Royals in Germany. (In fact Trooping the Colour is shown in full on German television every year, something which is denied to Australian television viewers.)

Tim Ewart from the British network ITN says that "II's been on TV every night it's been in the newspapers every day".

One estimate of the tourism income likely to flow from the Royal Visit is A$60 million.

ACM's Jai Martinkovits explains how monarchy will invent itself and how popular the Royal family is.
