Queensland Governor Paul de Jersey, Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk and High Court Chief Justice Susan Kiefel were part of the welcoming party.

The views of the Prince of Wales on Australia becoming a republic have become the subject of a fierce row days before a royal visit.

The royals will end their afternoon engagements with a visit to Lady Cilento's Children's Hospital where they will meet individuals involved with Juiced TV, Australia's first television program made by hospital patients.

Tony Abbott, the former conservative prime minister, hit back at claims that the heir to the throne would be supportive of Australia breaking away from the monarchy.

Around an hour before their arrival the scene was far from a fairytale welcome, with pouring rain and just a few eager well-wishers standing behind metal barriers.

Trump to use military on US/Mexico border
The counter effect of Trump's hard stance on Mexico has also started getting reflected on the Mexican side of the border. But that came to a crashing halt this week, with Presidential tweets saying, "NO MORE DACA DEAL!" and "Daca is dead".

The royal couple could be seen greeting senators and ministers on the tarmac at the airport.

Prince Charles and Camilla have touched down in Brisbane.

Camilla also shared her enthusiasm about tonight's opening ceremony with waiting fans, reportedly telling one: 'I hope you're going to watch the opening ceremony at the Games tonight'.

More to come as the tour progresses.

The Prince of Wales will be in the country from 4 to 10 April and will open the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games on Thursday.

Investors raise bets against Tesla shares
Tesla is now making only 975 Model 3s a week - well short of the 2,500-unit rate target by the end of this quarter. Indeed, Tesla's stock had jumped more than 5% to about $267 in early afternoon trading.

The couple's visit comes during a time when republican sentiment is gaining attention in Australia.

"We always get on very well", Mr Turnbull said.

"The prince and I, and Lucy (Turnbull) share a lot of common interests, particularly in terms of urbanism, architecture, planning, environment and ecology".

Prince Charles and Camilla will also visit Bundaberg and Cairns during their Queensland tour, before flying to Vanuatu and Darwin ahead of their departure home next week.
