I think Meghan felt she needed that coat. There was a bit of a nip in the air early on, but it's now become a bit warmer.
With so much coverage, perhaps the crowds will just grow and grow as the tour progesses Curryong.

People won't want to miss out.

If the weather's good tomorrow, Bondi will get big, big crowds.


Harry and Meghan look like they're dancing on that lawn -

Glad they spent a full 30 minutes with the crowd. They have been waiting for hours.

The crowd sang Stand bye to the couple which is beyond sweet.

Harry with the Victorian Governor, chatting with servicemen, young entrepreneurs. The Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews was nearby. Meghan now chatting, with some of the entrepreneurs. She looks a little tired actually, maybe a bit shell-shocked by the pace of the tour.

Not suprised to hear that Curryong - Meghan looking tired.

The couple are just about to leave to head off to the cafe.

Holding hands, holding hands -

TV live crossing to the beach - people already there waiting.

And so are some are some grim looking clouds.


Love the helicopter following them through the streets of Melbourne.

Me too Axeyman, and those camera flashes catching it.

Big crowds at the "Charcoal Lane" cafe.

Meghan and Harry checking out the street-art on the walls of the alleyway.

https://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/newpix/2...9830376434.jpg


Wallaby on the menu for their lunch there.

Aerial shots of the crowds outside the cafe - masses of people.

Reporter saying this was meant to be a private event - but word got out, and the masses descended.

This tour is going from strength to strength.

Having about an hour there - and they will be donning aprons and helping out in the kitchen.

Oh good, barramundi also on the menu. But also char-grilled kangaroo and wild-boar.


And reports that Harry will take a surf at Bondi tomorrow - !!!

Well, I hope so, but won't blame him if he doesn't, and that is just a rumour going around.

Megsie will be in her element helping out in the kitchen. Then they are off to a primary school.

Aren't they having kangaroo and roast boar? They are both sniffing some native herbs and flora as accompaniments in the kitchen there. I've never had kangaroo. I refuse to eat our national symbol, but Meghan is listening intently to the chef and she and Harry may try some I'm sure. Harry has rid himself of his tie, I see!

I thought that was cute, but I wish someone gave the pregnant lady a warning first.

Commentators just said there's also emu and eel on the menu Curryong.

I grew up with kangaroo - a cheap meat in my childhood. Now promoted as gourmet.

Very gamey.

Wonder if there is crocodile too.

They wanted that shot - they were so ready for that!


Meghan wearing the necklace a little boy in the crowd made for her - pasta pieces, painted gold.

Ha, I was right about the ring. I wrote yesterday that I thought it was a ring that was similar to a Fitbit!

I love how wonderful the Australian crowds have been and how sweet the people are. What a wonderful and uplifting tour so far. I also love how fun and enthusiastic the Aussie press has been. I HUGE contrast to the UK media! I wish they could stay in Australia!

BTW, I don't know if I saw right, but I do believe they are using the Royal Air Force jet, not just a chartered jet.

Yes, it's been good so far. I think Harry and Meghan are enjoying the tour so far. Did you see the crowd that spontaneously gathered outside the restaurant in Fitzroy? It's lunch hour and workers nearby took the opportunity to take a look at the couple. They are also waiting outside for them to leave. (All these engagements are running so late!)

A media person was cynical about Meghan baking the banana bread yesterday and the Channel 7 commentators were quite indignant. And over at Channel 9 Karl Stefanovic told Piers where to get off.

The Channel 7 coverage is great but the worst part is Rob Jobson. Did anyone else hear the part where he said Meghan likely didn't bake the bread and it probably tasted bad?

We've talked about the difference in UK VS AUS press before but to see multiple members of the Australian press defend Meghan and call out Piers while at the same time Rob Jobson is sitting there creating doubt and spreading false information.

Has she been practising!

That's how they do Aussie Rules footy down in Melbourne.

Impressive Meghan -

Yes, I think you're right about the jet jacqui24.

Great cartoon Axeyman - everyone wants to enjoy this happy Royal tour.

Regarding the doubts about who cooked the banana bread - why the doubts about it?

Great to see the crowds at the cafe Curryong. Hundreds are pouring into the beach to see them.

And AlowVera, thank goodness we don't have to be cynical and all that - all jumping in and enjoying the tour. And Invictus Games still to come.

Another great day of the tour

I have always loved Harrys tours and seeing him with the public. And Meghan seems to have the same effect

The reaction to the cars was great

Meghan seems to be a bit turned but a tour is long enough without being pregnant. Still seems in her element. Love seeing her at events like women in sports and entrepreneurs. She will be in her element in the kitchen.

Tried kangaroo on Philips island years ago. We were having pasta but our leader decided to make kangaroo for him and another group staying at the same dorms, and I tried it. Bit too gamey for me.
