PM tells of ‘warm’ chat with King Charles
Anthony Albanese has described his one-on-one meeting with King Charles ahead of the funeral for Queen Elizabeth as a “great honour”.
“I extended my personal condolences to King Charles but also the condolences of the Australian people,” the prime minister said from London on Sunday morning.
“He’s very conscious of the connection that was there between his mother, Her Majesty and Australia.
“But he also has, of course, a close personal connection, spending six months of his schooling in Australia and we had a quite a considerable engagement and discussion.”
