By Owen Weldon     Jan 21, 2010 in World
A group of spectators were gathered outside the government house in Melbourne, Australia, to listen to Prince William tell them that he and his family share a love for Australia.
Prince William spoke to a group of people gathered outside the government house in Melbourne where the Prince told them that His mother and father has great memories of time spent in Australia.
William said that back in 1996 he can remember his mother coming back from a trip in Australia and she was telling him what a huge impression the country left on her and how much she adored and loved Australia.
William said that he has only spent three days in Australia but he can see why she really loved it.
William also said his father talked about how much he also loved the country. William said that he remembers a time when his father told him about his time spent at school in Australia, where an Australian beauty gave Charles a kiss on the cheek.
William joked and said that he is happy that the tradition is continuing, referring to the Australian women who have been greeting him with affection during his tour.
The prince than said that his brother Harry also has a huge love of Australia and how Harry teases William and tells him that he has not lived life because he has never been to Australia.
The prince made a trip down to the townships north of Melbourne on his last day of his tour in Australia, where he met people who survived the bush fires last year, which left more than 150 people dead.
William says that his whole family was heartbroken over the event but Australians managed to let their spirits shine through the tragedy.
The prince said "My family, along with millions around the world, followed the events of last February with a sense of horror which slowly, as the days passed, turned to one of deep, deep admiration for the steadfastness of the Australian people."
William’s speech was positive but he did say he did have one regret and that was that he could not spend more time in Melbourne. William said that one day he will return.
Prince William paid a visit to Whittle Sea on Thursday. The prince was greeted by a huge mass of well-wishers before he had to head out to Flowerdale.
When the prince reached Flowerdale he was the man of the hour at a barbecue lunch. He spent time talking with locals who lost their homes in the bush fires and are now living in temporary housing.
Later that night the prince was a spectator at the Rod Laver Arena where he was cheering on Roger Federer, a Swiss tennis superstar, where Federer won over Victor Hanescu.
