Background: Another Royal tour began yesterday - but more informally. Mrs. Eileen Parbury, a niece of the Duchess of Gloucester, was waiting at Richmond airforce base near Sydney yesterday afternoon to welcome her cousin, Prince Richard of Gloucester. The prince who arrived from Singapore in a Hercules transport aircraft with his schoolfriend Richard Casenove, will spend two months on a private holiday visiting Australia. The Prince was here as a child when the Duke of Gloucester was Governor General towards the end of the war. He had a short reunion with his cousin and her family at Richmond Air base; then the prince left again for Canberra to stay with the Governor General for a few days.
Prince Richard arrived at Government House Canberra a short time ago.
