Prince Charles of Wales is all set to tour Australia to launch the Commonwealth Games on behalf of the Queen.

His tour will see him visit the Pacific island, Vanuatu, where some island tribes idolize Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh as a god.

The tour, which begins on April 4, will also include Prince Charles meeting the family of Australian wildlife expert Steve Irwin,  famously known as the 'Crocodile Hunter'.

Irwin's family and Prince Charles will get together on a Great Barrier Reef island to highlight the plight of the world’s coral reefs.
