After the performance, Harry and Meghan met with well-wishers outside the famed building, many of whom had been waiting for hours in the Sydney sun to catch a glimpse of the royal couple.

It's hard to overestimate how popular Harry and Meghan have become.

Harry's cousin, Princess Eugenie, married Jack Brooksbank at the same location on Friday. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are in Australia for their first official engagement together and here's what went down.

The tour coincides with the third Invictus Games, an worldwide sports competition Harry founded in 2014 for wounded veterans and members of the military, which kicks off Saturday. Harry created the popular worldwide multi-sport event, in which wounded, injured or sick armed services personnel and veterans take part in sports including wheelchair basketball, sitting volleyball and indoor rowing. This, of course, isn't the first time fans have been elated with the news of another royal baby.

Harry, who served with the British Army for a decade, including two tours of duty in Afghanistan, set up the Invictus Games after visiting the US Warrior Games in 2013.

Harry and Meghan will attend the games' opening and closing ceremonies.
