Two policemen have been rushed to hospital after they were involved in a high speed crash while escorting Prince Charles and Camilla to the Commonwealth Games opening ceremony

Austrailian radio stations Hit105's reporter, Jase, from the breakfast show of Stav, Abby & Matt performed a very impromptu interview with Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall. "Oh, don't believe all that cr*p".

According to a palace insider speaking to Express.co.uk, this is because the Duchess of Cornwall 'doesn't want to take too much on'.

Prince Charles' communication director Julian Payne cheekily referenced the rumor in a tweet earlier in the week, when he announced the start of Charles and Camilla's tour down under, which included the official opening of the XXI Commonwealth Games in Queensland on Wednesday.

Bower also claims in his book that the father of Princes William and Harry travels with his own supply of toilet paper.

The Prince of Wales has pooh-poohed the rumour he takes his own personal toilet seat with him on overseas trips, telling interviewers in Australia: "Don't believe all that crap".

There are surely more applications of machine learning planned in the future; Giannandrea would likely spearhead those efforts. Apple is now looking to hire more than 150 people to staff its Siri team, a recruiting boom that did not go unnoticed .

The tour comes as Australia is debating having a local head-of-state after the death of Queen Elizabeth.

Camilla was a guest of honour at the ceremony - especially as her husband Prince Charles, the heir to the British throne, had the duty of declaring the Games open.

Charles was greeted in Brisbane by Governor-General Peter Cosgrove, a former Australian army general who represents the monarch in Australia, and was welcomed with a 21-gun salute.

The eyebrow-raising claims made headlines worldwide - and with Charles and wife Camilla in Australia to open the Commonwealth Games, Hit105 reporter Jase, from Stav, Abby and Matt's breakfast radio show, chose to go straight to the source to find out the truth.
