“It all transpired through Sinclair Hill, who was probably our greatest player,” David Elder, whose father was captain of the Goondiwindi Polo Club at the time, told Neil Breen.

“I can only imagine, I was only twelve at the time, … he was great mates with Sinclair; I imagine he was there as a guest of his.”

“It was a hell of a day,” said Mr Elder. “There was a huge crowd there, as you can imagine.

“Dad says he was a real happy-go-lucky sort of bloke. A good fella.”

Melissa Lewis told Neil Prince Charles later visited Moree ahead of his marriage.

“There was a photo taken of Prince Charles, and my grandmother and myself.

“It is quite the story.”
