The Queen also got to "sample" a student's kangaroo stew.

But the trip did not go off without a hitch.

At an art gallery, Prince Philip suggests putting the traditional eucalyptus message stick gifted to the Queen on a piece of Aboriginal art depicting a bird's nest on display, not realizing the gift's importance.

The comment did not sit well with spectators.

The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh are scheduled to open a biennial Commonwealth meeting on Friday.
