The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are meeting three of Australia's surviving Victoria Cross recipients at a tonight's reception hosted by the governor-general.
Prince William and his wife Kate will be welcomed to the reception at Government House in Yarralumla by 100 guests from the arts, business, charity, conservation and sporting fields.
The guests will include Corporals Daniel Keighran and Benjamin Roberts-Smith and SAS Trooper Mark Donaldson, three of four Australians awarded the honour for their actions in Afghanistan. Corporal Cameron Baird was awarded the posthumously earlier this year.
Australia's fourth surviving VC recipient, Keith Payne, was not in attendance.
