Prince Charles and his wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall are now on a seven day tour of Australia together, and he gave a radio interview where he answered a question about a insane rumor.

The amusing claim about Charles traveling with his own personal toilet seat apparently originated in Tom Bower's new unauthorized biography, Rebel Prince: The Power, Passion and Defiance of Prince Charles.

Later that day, Prince Charles and Camilla attended the opening ceremony of the Commonwealth Games.

A reporter from Hit 105's Stav, Abby and Matt breakfast show has allegedly recorded his potty questioning of the Prince as he greeted fans at Brisbane's Botanical Gardens yesterday.

Is it true that you carry your own toilet seat when you travel?', asked Hit105 reporter Jase.

Prince Charles stayed at their family's dairy farm during his time at school in Australia. We'll probably never know.

The heir to the throne received a ceremonial welcome and 21-gun salute at Government House in Brisbane before meeting hundreds of well-wishers in the city's Botanic Gardens.

The royal couple then went on and visited the Lady Cilento Children's Hospital.

The visit starting Wednesday equals his mother Queens Elizabeth II's tally of 16 royal tours of the former British colony and comes as the monarch winds back her worldwide travel commitments.

Camilla Parker Bowles reportedly agreed to go on the trip in the hopes it would help Prince Charles' case for becoming the next Commonwealth Head, a title separate from the crown that he is not guaranteed to inherit. In an upcoming book about Prince Harry's fiancee, Meghan Markle, writer Andrew Morton claims that the Suits star became fascinated with the royals following Princess Diana's death in 1997.
