During a speech the Prince delivered at the tail end of their visit, he said: "Foreign tours are an opportunity to reflect. You learn so much. What is on the minds of Prime Ministers. The hopes and ambitions of school children. The day-to-day challenges faced by families and communities."

Referring to the debate over whether each of the three nations might break away from the British monarchy to become republics, he said: "I know that this tour has brought into even sharper focus questions about the past and the future.

The future king continued: "Catherine and I are committed to service. For us that's not telling people what to do. It is about serving and supporting them in whatever way they think best, by using the platform we are lucky to have.
