Tasmanians encouraged to be part of Royal Visit Mon 29 October 2012 Lara Giddings Premier Tasmanians will be able to line the streets of Richmond and Salamanca Place on 8 November to greet Their Royal Highnesses The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall on their whirlwind visit to the State. The Premier, Lara Giddings, said Their Royal Highnesses would walk along Richmond's Bridge and Edward Streets and also part of Salamanca Place to meet Tasmanians. "The two public walks are in addition to several functions, including a reception with women in Tasmania's agricultural sector in Richmond and a State Reception at PW1," Ms Giddings said. "The Prince of Wales will also make a private visit to witness sheep shearing and wool classing at a family owned sheep stud at Sorell and will be briefed on a range of Antarctic and marine research programs." Members of the public are encouraged to gather at Richmond on Bridge and Edward Streets from 10.30am for the couple's 12.10pm arrival, and at Salamanca Place from 2.30pm for the 3.55pm walk. More detail on the public opportunities - including parking arrangements - will be available next week. Their Royal Highnesses' six-day visit to Australia from 5-10 November is part of a two-week tour that will also include Papua New Guinea and New Zealand. The visit is based on the theme of The Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebrations which is 'service to the community'.
