If you want a right royal time, then head to South Bank

IPSWICH royalists will have to head to Brisbane to catch a glimpse Prince William and Princess Kate as their tour of Australia reaches south-east Queensland.

The Royal couple along with their son George will land at the Amberley RAAF on Saturday.

A spokesperson for Premier Campbell Newman said the couple would meet with members of the armed forces who recently returned from Afghanistan.

"They are there in a military and Commonwealth capacity to see the men and women who served overseas and spend time with their families," the spokesperson said.

The spokesperson said during the brief visit there would be no opportunity for the public to see the pair in Ipswich.

Prince William and his wife will travel to Brisbane for an official reception co-hosted by the Governor and the Premier of Queensland at the Convention and Exhibition Centre.

They will then make their way to Russell Street, South Bank to meet the public.

The public walk will be from Russell Street to the Cultural Forecourt and is scheduled to start at 2.50pm.

Anyone wanting to see Their Royal Highnesses are encouraged to be there well in advance.

A big screen will be on the Cultural Forecourt at South Bank Parklands to ensure all visitors have a prime view of the day's events.
