Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall have arrived in the Australian Outback as part of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee tour.
Camilla was introduced to an orphaned 12-month-old kangaroo called Ruby Blue during a visit to a rural settlement in Longreach.
The animal, wrapped in a cloth bag to mimic her mother's pouch, was cuddled by the Duchess who joked: "There's a first time for everything."
The royal couple have already had a warm reception in Papua New Guinea and during the next two weeks they will also visit New Zealand.
