Meghan Markle gets a fright in Melbourne on royal tour of Australia


The Duchess of Sussex has been travelling non-stop this week, jetting around Australia on her royal tour with husband Prince Harry.

It was a hectic day of engagements for the popular Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

The royal couple also visited a school which is focused on improving education of indigenous Australians, and attended a community event in Dubbo, where Harry praised the area's farmers for their endurance in the face of the hardship of the drought. "He said 'Hello young man.' And Luke just said, 'Hello Harry.' And Prince Harry graciously realized that his language is limited".

Expectant Meghan donned a summer dress, putting aside her high heels, while Harry ditched his usual suit for chinos as the couple lapped up cheers from Australian fans and enjoyed Bondi's surf.

"We had a bit of a laugh because last time he was here he was out for a run and he said "Last time I was a bit sweaty when I met you".

Harry bought the bracelet in Africa shortly after Diana's death (Pic: GETTY) "My dad told my brother and me to pack our bags - we were going to Africa to get away from it all".

"So for her to be jetlagged and pregnant must be pretty exhausting", she said. It's working, from all the hand holding, to Meghan even baking her own banana bread for one family she met along the way.

"They then took a ride on a tram where they were quizzed on baby names by local pupils!"

After lunch at Mission Australia's Charcoal Lane social enterprise restaurant, the couple headed to Albert Park Primary School where hundreds of screaming and jumping schoolkids greeted them.

Yesterday, on the first day of their 16-day royal tour, Prince Harry broke royal protocol for what he saw as an unmissable moment.
