Prince Harry is due to do a public walkabout tomorrow in Sydney.

In the Campbell Cove area of Circular Quay - just near the hotel Pippa and James stayed at last week. (At 2.00pm local time.)

He's watching a sailing race on the Harbour beforehand.

What a pity the Matthews couldn't have hung around. They could have watched the boat race together on that magnificent harbour! I'm sure people will come out for this popular member of the BRF on his walkabout and exchange a few pleasantries. Hope they ask him about Meghan...oops!

He'll see "Vivid" at least Curryong - it's still going - as he is staying in one of the hotels on the Harbour and a lot of the festival is around that area.

(I don't think he will be at the same hotel as Pippa and James' though. People walking across the Harbour Bridge can look down onto that hotel, the pool/spa/sun-lounge area on it's roof.)

And the weather's cracked up polyesco - still, Harry is ploughing on, and is currently a few streets away at Admiralty House giving a speech. (Indoors).

Thank heavens Harry, and everybody else listening to him, is indoors. This really is the wrong time to come to Australia and see us at our best. Cold and gusty! However, it's good that Harry is keeping an eye on everything that is going on in order to make Sydney Invictus 2018 a roaring success.

Someone in the crowd handed him a cup of tea and a Tim Tam Curryong - everyone absolutely drenched.

Lots of photos and info already on Daily Mail.

Currently in the Overseas Passenger Terminal at Circular Quay. (Which is opposite the Opera House for anyone who doesn't know Sydney.)

And Daphne - in her nineties - braved the weather to see Harry again. (I chickend out, but saw some of the action on the Harbour - when the rain wasnt' too heavy to blot it out. Lots of fork lightening and a bit of thunder too.)

'Female guests enthralled by Harry's thrilling conversation'? My goodness, he must be good!

All, the same, it's great that he and some stalwart fans met up again and everyone braved the horrible weather! A cuppa and a Tim Tam. What more could you need when you're in a rainstorm and water's dripping from your nose? Everybody seems in good spirits though, and cheers for Daphne, what a trooper! I'd have been there if I had been in Sydney. Hoping for better weather though for Invictus 2018.

"He must be good!" - It seems so Curryong.

Here is a first hand account from today's public walkabout, showing why Harry is so popular with the public.

(And everyone is so wet!)

'Charming...dreamboat,' 'lost in his dreamy eyes' 'never wash my hands again' and all while the rain is pouring and everyone is soaked! I saw him a couple of years ago and the effect on people around me and even me was pretty well the same, except we didn't have the rain to contend with. He's a very down to earth and lovely guy and I bet the people he met won't forget this in a hurry!

That's so awesome that you got to meet him! From the news clips I have seen, even though there was such a downpour, Harry spent a lot of time shaking hands and talking with a lot people.

Yes, like a drowned rat really, but cheerful with it! Plus a few well chosen words about Invictus and the armed forces.

Our Harry though is no actor. What you see with him is what you get. Looking at Daphne and Harry in the recent photo of the two of them, one gets the impression that Harry is genuinely and sincerely happy to meet up with an old friend again. I have no clue if Harry remembered her or was pointed out to him that she was in the crowd again but it does seem like Harry was greeting a much beloved grandmother. No matter the whys, Mrs. Dunn was a very happy person going to sleep that night.

Another chance for the general public to meet Harry at 9.30am this morning - in just over an hour and a half - when he is at the Olympic Park Aquatic Centre.

(And still pouring down here.)

Harry has "it", Osipi - charm, the right touch with people.

It looked like he recognised her from the footage that's been on TV - they had quite a hug and chat.

He told Daphne - who is ninety seven years old - that he's been lopsided for the last two years since she kissed his cheek.
