An official release of Buckingham Palace said: & # 39; During this visit, HRH is organizing both the Boot Camp and the main event of Pitch @ Palace Australia 3.0, which encourages and supports entrepreneurship in Australia, and offers international support and development opportunities for these early stage companies .
& # 39; One of the main areas of focus of The Duke is supporting and raising the profile of starting businesses, and acting as an accelerator for entrepreneurs and new businesses.

Prince Andrew & # 39; s journey comes when the scandal around Epstein, which he met in 1999, took a different turn.
On Sunday, a whistleblower would have told the police that Prince Andrew had been regularly in the £ 7 million apartment of billionaire Epstein in Paris.
Investigators in the French city are now investigating reports that the Duke of York was often in the building.

The unveiling comes after the apartment was raided by officers who discovered a custom-made massage parlor where Epstein and his friends would have raped their victims.
The FBI has expanded their investigation into Epstein while investigating Prince Andrew's ties with the shamed financier.
The agency would go to & # 39; different & # 39; potential victims are looking in the hope that they can give more details.
The report quotes former head of royal protection on Scotland Yard, Dai Davies, and said that a full investigation would be in Prince Andrew's interest.
& # 39; I would have thought it was in Prince Andrew's interest to clarify this case & # 39 ;, said Davies, who was in charge of protecting Prince Andrew in the late 1990s, to The Sunday Times.
Former sex slave, Virginia Roberts Giuffre, from Cairns, had accused the Duke of York of having sex with her when she was a minor at the age of 17 and claimed to be offered while in the home of Epstein's # 39; s ex friend Ghislaine Maxwell was in London.

But the probe was dropped by the British Metropolitan Police in 2015 and this week a former Florida agent who worked as a Palm Beach County sheriff in the 2009 Epstein pedophile case claimed that the FBI had obscured Prince Andrew's involvement.
Prince Andrew reportedly met Epstein in 1999 and the royal flew twice on the financier's private jet – including once in 2001 with Giuffre.
It is claimed that the 35-year-old Giuffre & # 39; s account is not the only one investigating the FBI – which has already identified 80 victims – regarding Prince Andrew, 59.
He would also have visited Epstein's New York home in 2013 and it is now claimed that more witnesses could reveal details about his friendship with Epstein.
The billionaire money manager was accused of sexually abusing dozens of underage girls before he was hanged in his prison cell on 10 August.
