Australians deserve to know how much Prince Charles' visit to Australia cost Australian taxpayers (and Vanuatu, since we footed the bill for that too...).
Seven years ago the Queen and her husband visited and this cost Australians more than $2.6 million. What did April's Commonwealth Games visit cost? How much did we pay for the military plane which will fly the Prince and his wife from Singapore to Brisbane? Did we also pay to fly the Prince's wife home early while his visit continued? What was the cost to state and local governments of extra policing and other local arrangements?
