Photo-Special! Charles and the Leaping Sheep

Prince in Tasmania

Charles and Camilla's Tour of Australia is turning into one big animal photo-op. Fresh after Camilla and the cuddly Roo in a blanket, here's Chaz and the acrobatic sheep.

Charles, wearing a Andersen and Sheppard suit made from Tasmanian merino wool, was at Leenavale Sheep Stud, Sorell in the island state of Tasmania, promoting his Campaign for Wool.

This seems like the only opportunity I will ever have to share my one and only Tasmanian joke so here goes: "You are now landing in Tasmania, where the local tine is 1974..."
