 The Broken Hill Flying Doctor base has been working tirelessly for days to prepare for Crown Princess Mary’s Friday visit - and they are not the only ones.

TAFE Chef Lee Cecchin is slaving away in the kitchen to prepare a meal fit for royalty, and she said yesterday that she was about “a third of the way” through the preparations.
