CANBERRA, Australia (AP) — Britain's Prince William bid farewell to Australia on Thursday in the only speech of his national tour, revealing that his baby son George had become particularly fond of a toy native animal during the visit.

"We go away with wonderful memories and George goes away with a cuddly wombat that he's taken to chewing so lovingly," the Duke of Cambridge told a reception at Australia's Parliament House in the national capital Canberra.

William, his wife Kate and George leave Canberra after veterans' day commemorations on Friday, ending a three-week tour of Australia and New Zealand.
