No, you haven't stepped back in time. This really is our Royal family on tour, looking every inch aristos of yesteryear on a tour of "the colonies".

Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall are on a Pacific tour, which has so far seen Charles speak Tok Pisin – a form of Pidgin English combining English and creole – in Papua New Guinea and Camilla pet a wallaby.

To keep up the royal stereotypes, they will watch horse racing with Mischa Barton and local star Delta Goodrem.
