Royal Message Down Under: Queen Elizabeth & Prince Philip Take Possible Final Tour of Australia
Queen Elizabeth and husband Prince Philip endured a grueling 24-hour flight before arriving in the Commonwealth of Australia for possibly their final Royal tour of Down Under. The 85-year-old monarch and the 90-year-old Duke of Edinburgh didn't look any worse for wear after the long flight, arriving in Perth, Western Australia, where they commenced an 11 day tour of the nation. Even though she is amazingly fit and mobile for her age, many experts believe this will perhaps be the Queen's final official visit to Australia, and she will more than likely start to pass off some of her royal duties to other, younger members of the Royal Family.
