Prince Charles arrives in Australia amid renewed monarchy debate

Britain's Prince Charles samples a red wine at Tanunda, in the Barossa Valley area of Australia, some 70 kilometres north-east of Adelaide on November 10, 2015Prince Charles touched down in Adelaide Tuesday, the first British royal to visit Australia since staunch republican Malcolm Turnbull became prime minister, amid a revived debate over whether Canberra is ready to ditch its monarchy ties. Turnbull, who ousted royal supporter Tony Abbott in a party coup in September, is a former head of the Australian Republican Movement and campaigned passionately, but unsuccessfully, to ditch the monarchy in a 1999 referendum on the issue. The six-day royal visit follows a move to remove knights and dames from Australia’s national honours system, which the ardent republican leader said were “not appropriate” in the modern age.
