Prince Harry arrived in Canberra, Australia on Monday (April 6) to begin a four week military attachment with the Australian Defence Force (ADF).

After landing in Sydney on a commercial British Airways flight the Prince was flown to Canberra by the Royal Australian Air force.

He was greeted by the Governor-General Sir Peter Cosgrove and the Chief of Defence Force Air Chief Marshal Mark Binskin at the Australian War Memorial before laying a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and placing a poppy in the Roll of Honour.

Before Prince Harry reported for duty to the Chief of Defence Force, Air Chief Marshal Mark Binskin he met hundreds of well-wishers outside the War Memorial, his only public appearance while in Australia.

While on secondment with the ADF, Captain Wales, as he is known in the British Army, will live and work alongside Australian Army in regiments in Darwin, Sydney and Perth.
