Prince William will ignore the royal treatment as he set to take a trip to Australia early in the new year.
The 27-year-old prince told those people planning his trip to New Zealand and Australia to scrap the routine and keep protocol to a minimum. It is believed that he did not want bowing and scraping on his five-day January visit.
Prince William knew that there will be some formalities as he will represent for his grandmother Queen Elizabeth II to open New Zealand’s Supreme Court. But he wants as little red-carpet fever as possible.
