    Commentary begins; The media arrived at the secret campsite of Prince Charles after breakfast but the Prince was already out riding

    'What don't you like about that hat?' Prince Charles: If you move they bash your face, haven't really discovered if they keep the flies away.

    'Have you had much trouble from flies? 'They're not bad but they keep going up my nose, and my ears and my mouth, the funny thing is that the moment you come out they all descend on you in a heap and then after about five minutes they work their numbers out and there's about five lucky ones and the rest shove off.'

    'Well would you like to stay on here for a little longer?'

    'Obviously it's very nice but there are a lot of other things to do and a lot of other parts of Australia to see....at least I've had a chance.

    'Despite the expense and distance of coming here, we were not allowed to film the Prince in the actual campsite instead we were only allowed to film the Prince on horseback and drinking.. tea.......The Prince will not stay here tonight, instead he will go to the homestead some ten kilometres away from here and there he will spend the night. Then he will fly out tomorrow to begin his official round of engagements in the North West. This is Bud Willoughby at - station near - Channel 9 News.'
