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.

The countdown to Crown Mary Princess of Denmark’s visit to Broken Hill is on and while her stay will be brief, it should be one to remember.
The princess will arrive on Friday and spend two hours at the Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS) base before heading back to Melbourne.
Organiser of the trip, the chairman of charity group RFDS of Australia, Friends in the United Kingdom, Marina Ritossa, said that Princess Mary had for years been very interested in the Flying Doctor and in visiting the outback.
“I met the princess a number of years ago and developed a bit of a relationship,” Ms Ritossa said.
