I got my passport stamped at the government offices of the Principality of the Hutt River. I also picked up some postage stamps for a collector friend and a sticker for the bike. (I’m planning to put the flags of all the countries I pass through on the bike).
Prince Graeme was well into his stride by this point. I was surprised at the number of cordial relations and diplomatic gifts they have in their museum. I also found out that in some crises the Hutt flag has been used to deliver humanitarian aid, because the warring factions viewed the Hutt as being totally neutral.
It seems the initial secession to protect the family had grown into something much bigger and more worthwhile. Of course, the Australian government still doesn’t formally recognise the Principality as a separate nation.
