Barbecue bother for William

Prince William got a little smoke in his eye as he helps New Zealand prime minister John Key cook a barbecue at the politician's villa-style house in the capital Wellington yesterday.

Today, the 27-year-old royal will arrive in Sydney as a poll reveals most Australians want him to be their next King. An ITV News poll found 58 per cent of those interviewed said William should be the next monarch compared with 30 per cent who favoured his father, the Prince of Wales.
