Britain's Prince Harry's royal status will mean nothing in his new job - he's set to work as a low-paid cattlehand during a three-month stay in Australia.

The second son of heir to the throne Prince Charles, 19-year old Harry arrived in Australia yesterday (22SEP03), where he will spend part of his year off between school and an army career.

Harry will work at several different sheep and cattle stations in the vast Australian outback during his stay.

Spokeswoman COLLEEN HARRIS from Britain's CLARENCE HOUSE says,"Harry is very interested in agriculture and farming and what better place to do it than Australia. He will be working as a jackaroo, mustering cattle on horseback and will be paid the going rate for a jackaroo," adding that the weekly rate was about $160 (GBP100).

The sports-loving prince is also expected to play in a couple of private polo matches and attend some of the RUGBY WORLD CUP games to cheer on favourites England.

But the trip has already hit controversy - Australian republicans, who want a homegrown president to replace the British monarch as their head of state, are unhappy about the estimated A$600,000 ($408,000/GBP255,000) it will cost to provide back-up security for the prince's own security team.

Harris says it's a reciprocal service usually provided all around the world, noting, "There hasn't been an issue about this up to date anywhere else in the world."

Harry will be back home in time for Christmas before moving onto the next stage of his gap year.
