Prince Charles and his wife is visiting Australia as part of their Royal Tour to discuss coral resilience and protection. 


While there, he took the time to meet with the late Crocodile Hunter's family. Steve Irwin passed away in 2006 from a stingray injury to the heart. 

As reported by ET Online, Charles and Camilla met Steve's widow, Terri, as well their two children, Bindi and Robert, to discuss the protection of the Great Barrier Reef. 

After their meeting, Bindi wrote on Instagram that her family 'feels extremely privileged to have had the opportunity to meet with His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales.'


'We joined together to discuss important methods to protect the largest living structure on Earth. The Great Barrier Reef.'

She added that everybody must work together to protect 'these sensitive ecosystems for generations to come. Bindi ended her post with the hashtag, 'Royal Visit Australia.'

Her younger brother, the 14-year-old Robert, shared her sentiments and said that he was 'truly honored' to meet the Duke of Cornwall. 


Robert shares his father's passion for the environment and conservation, and noted that it was great to speak about the Barrier Reef 'with such a passionate and influential person.' 

While in Australia, Prince and Camilla also opened the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games in Queensland on April 4, 2018. 


This year marks the fifth time that Australia hosts the Commonwealth Games. According to, Camilla was 'knackered' during the ceremony. 

News outlets reported that Camilla showed 'indifference to the athletes, officials, and artists,' but it was later explained in a statement that she was 'badly jet-lagged' at the time.

The couple had only arrived in Australia 36 hours before the games started and she 'had a full duty right through the day.'
