No, White and animals don't mix! I loved the look of delight on Harry's face when he saw the pair of baby uggs! Looks like a nice day weatherwise.

So excited that the tour has finally started. Abslolutely loved the gifts of the Kangaroo and the joey, plus the Akubra Hat. So Australian.

Yep and I can happily report there wasn't any koala cuddling. There was a tentative stroke with a finger but at the end but no touching at all other wise.

Australia really is committing to this tour..haha

There is a stuffed toy /gift shop near the Opera house. So they are probably doing a very brisk trade with the crowd who have turned up to see the couple.

Meghan is in flats. Not sure if she’ll stay in the flats for the walk about or if it’s just for the boat ride.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were given a cuddly koala and joey as a gift by @tarongazoo - Meghan told the keeper she would be putting them in the nursery 🐨 #RoyalVisitAustralia #RoyalBaby

6:03 PM - 15 Oct 2018

ABC estimated the crowd at the walk about to be between 5,000-10,000 people.

My apologies if I assume too much on your behalf. Being a Queenslander means we like to help if possible. In this case I might not be of much help as my state of Queensland is one hour behind Sydney due to daylight saving. So the New South Wales - Sydney crowd may be of more help to you.
Cheers

I agree Sun Lion that the exit ramp they used was not fit for a visiting VIP let alone royals. They really need to smarten the place up.
Thanks so much for the offer....or do I say 'fair Dinkum?' Here in Toronto this Monday has been gray, gloomy and rainy; the only bright news has come from Australia, so thanks, mates

A moment between appointments for me and I'm sitting here, hearing the helicopters over the Opera House, while watching the walkabout on the telly.

Actually saw Harry and Meghan in the flesh this morning!

For about a nano-second.

They went from Admiralty House to Taronga Zoo by car and whizzed by me in the street - saw Harry's arm and Meghan's lap.

Very warm day now - sudden change. The wind a help with how warm it is. Meghan must be so warm with that coat on.

Great live TV coverage with everyone in the sunshine.

Meghan speaking with Daphne on TV - good sound for their exchange.

That'll be on the news tonight.

Gosh I felt so emotional when Harry and Meghan made a beeline for dear Daphne Dunne. A 98 year old lady who has met Harry twice before. She lost her husband in the war. Harry has kissed Daphne before and has told Meghan about her.
They had a microphone on so we could hear what they were saying.
And dear Daphne said to Harry, 'Now give me a kiss before you go.'
And like a dutiful young man he did. That got me quite emotional.
I hope your media captured the whole thing. It was lovely.

It was lovely to watch even if I couldn't hear. He made a beeline for Daphne. Meghan was on the other side, and he asked someone to get her and she came over.

Fantastic weather in Sydney by the way.

Yes they are really lucky with the weather. Tomorrow in Dubbo a large country town ravaged by drought - the forecast is for heavy rain which they need. So wellington boots might be needed.

Meghan said to Daphne she would meet her baby next year when they come back. Which was a very sweet thing for her to say.

Meghan told Daphne "next time we see you, we'll have our little one with us". I'm NOT crying...

Really noting catching up on day one after work.

Hasty and Meghan with daphne make the heart melt

I love pd the visit to the zoo. Loved getting up and close with the amazing wildlife there. Wonderful seeing them get the chance and touring the fantastic breeding and conservation program.

Saw videos of the dancing they saw at the opera house. Incredible dancers.

Baby already has a menagerie started for it

Meghan had a very good talk with Daphne - seemed like many minutes jacqui24.

I'll have to come back and add to this post though - it's all gone straight out of both of my brain cells!

I'm expecting another front page tomorrow - Meghan and Daphne.

This will be repeated and end up on the internet no doubt - they definitely had a microphone there ready, we heard every word of the exchange from both of them.

(I think I had my machine on recording this - have to get going at the moment. I'll let you know when I see it again.)


And heard they got to do the Sky Safari at the zoo - William and Kate missed that.

(A gondola ride down to the Harbour, sailing over the elephant enclosure and other exhibits.)
