London, January 22 (ANI): Prince William has said visiting Australia has been "realisation of a dream."
The prince made the speech at the end of a five-day tour of New Zealand and Australia.
He also spoke about the incident when his father was kissed coming out of the sea by a bathing beauty in the country in 1970s.
"My father had such a great time here at school - and is still misty-eyed about an immortal moment on Bondi, when an Australian beauty planted a smacker on his cheek," Scotsman quoted him as saying.
He added: "It's good to see this tradition is continuing."
Williams referred to his brother Harry, saying: "And of course, there's that other guy with the ginger hair who just never ever stops banging on about you, and how I haven't lived because I haven't been to Australia."
The prince mentioned the "profound impression" Australia made on his mother Princess Diana. (ANI)
