Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall made an unusual friend when they arrived in the Australian outback - a kangaroo!
Camilla met orphaned 12-month-old 'Ruby Blue' during a visit to a rural settlement in Longreach.
The roo, wrapped in a cloth bag (just like her mother's pouch) was cuddled by the Duchess.
"There's a first time for everything" - joked Camilla.
The Royal couple have already visited Papua New Guinea as part of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee tour.
During the next two weeks they will also visit New Zealand.
