A Current Affair host Tracy Grimshaw looked relieved to be home as she landed in Sydney Airport on Friday.
She had suffered a gaffe earlier this week during Channel Nine’s coverage of the Queen’s funeral when she failed to recognise British Prime Minister Liz Truss.
The 62-year-old donned a $600 Camilla shirt over a plain black T-shirt and slacks as she made a beeline for the airport car park.
Tracy, who also wore black and white Converse sneakers and a cross-body bag, had some help from airport staff who pushed her luggage through the terminal.
She ditched her usual TV glamour for the long-haul flight by going makeup free.
The Nine veteran required two trolleys for all her baggage, after spending more than a week in England covering the death and funeral of Queen Elizabeth II.
Her Louis Vuitton business bag, worth over $3,500, sat atop one of the trolleys.
It comes after Tracy and fellow senior Nine journalist Peter Overton were unable to identify Britain’s new leader as they provided commentary on the Queen’s funeral on Monday night.
As UK Prime Minister Liz Truss climbed out of her car at Westminster Abbey, the two veteran broadcasters were left scratching their heads as to who she was.
‘So, this is a significant motorcade, we are being told now,’ Peter, 56, said.
He continued: ‘Come with us as we try and identify who is getting out of the car. This is under police escort of course. I would suggest this might be royalty, Tracy.
‘Hard to identify. Maybe minor royals, members of the… I can’t identify them at this point…’
Viewers at home took to social media to call them out on the blunder, prompting Peter to issue a correction moments later.
‘I’m told that was Liz Truss, the new prime minister, in the distance, we could see hopping out of the car. Thank you very much for that information,’ he told viewers.
He then conceded to Nine co-stars Karl Stefanovic, Ally Langdon and UK royal expert Dickie Arbiter that their British guest might be better at spotting local famous faces.
Ms Truss was the last world leader to be pictured with the Queen in her final official duty, just 48 hours before she died.
