Camilla and Prince Charles in Australia BACKLASH: ‘Go home – you’re not welcome!’
Prince Charles and Camilla were hit by a tirade of abuse at the Commonwealth Games Opening Ceremony with angry Australians telling the Royal couple they are “not welcome” in their country.
The Royal couple began their seven-day tour of Australia by attending the ceremony on the Gold Coast in Queensland last night amid a republic row over Australia breaking free from the Monarchy.
Onlookers quickly criticised the Duchess, 70, for looking “bored”, “miserable” and “uninterested” as she watched the opening ceremony from the VIP box.
Former Olympic diver Matthew Mitchum tweeted: “Camilla is not even trying to look like she wants to be here.
“Top lip betrayed (sic) a constant look of contempt when she was looking up from her magazine.”
But it may be no wonder the couple looked unhappy because they had been subject to a tirade of abuse from Australians all day on social media.
Camilla, in particular, drew constant comparisons to her husband’s ex-wife and mother to his children, Princess Diana, while others called for Australia to become a Republic.
Kim Bellamy said: “Both stuck up an ignorant couple. That committed adultery with one another while he was still married to poor Diana but she wasn’t allowed to move forward.”
Angela Robyn Duggan wrote on Facebook: “I can never forgive them for what they did to poor Princess Di…keep the cameras off them please!”
Who asked them to come to Australia anyway – they are NOT welcome here?
Another read: “I’m a Pom, but disgusted with this farce, What Camilla did to Diana will not go away. A very, very unpopular duo”, “not my Royal Family!’ and “the more I see them the more I wish Princess Diana is still alive, how I hate Camilla”.
While others called for Charles and Camilla to go home.
One said: “Sad to see Charles and Camilla carrying on this colonial charade in the 21st century. Send them home and launch the Republic of Australia already!”
Another Twitter user posted: “Prince Charles scraped the bottom of the barrel when he married the adulteress, Camilla. Who asked them to come to Australia anyway – they are NOT welcome here? Why should the Australian taxpayer work their guts out so as these two immoral people can visit here?”
But when Prince Charles took the stage at the ceremony, the heir to the throne said he and his wife were “delighted” to be there.
He said: “My wife and I could not be more delighted to be able to join all of you here on the Gold Coast this evening – and the many millions of you who are watching from your homes across the Commonwealth – for this spectacular opening ceremony of the 21st Commonwealth Games.”
Their seven-day tour comes amid a row in Australia after former PM, Paul Keating, said he was “certain” Prince Charles would be supportive of the nation splitting from the British monarchy if the people wanted to.
But it quickly escalated when the former conservative prime minister, Tony Abbot, hit back accusing Mr. Keating of attributing opinions to the prince he had never said.
