The couple are about to leave the school - and even more people have turned up in the street to see them.

And look at this Oz posters! -

I think so too Axeyman.

We've just had footage of the motorcade on it's way back to Admiralty House for lunch.

People are gathering outside the entrance to Bridge Climb already to await Harry.

So glad the day is so beautiful - should be wonderful views on a day like this.

Are those jars of Vegemite?

Yes Osipi - but wouldn't Harry prefer marmalade and Meghan what? - Nutella!


For those who don't mind Daily Mail - some insights from the people speaking with Meghan this morning - finding her pregnancy a bit like jet lag and how's she's feeling free now she's given up social media -

I have no idea. I know Vegemite is very popular in Australia but I've yet to sample it. Some have said its an acquired taste. If I'm ever fortunate to visit Down Under, it'll be on my "to do" list.

The secret Osipi is to use just a scraping - on toast or very fresh white bread. Use butter first.

Overseas people always gag on it because they put it on like jam.


And they're back here already - with their helicopter.

Bet Harry is looking forward to this afternoon, now the weather is so good.


Some close-ups of Meghan's school hairstyle -

That let's you off jacqui24, Axeyman and Osipi.
Poor thing.

Good thing they've generally had light evenings. Hopefully she's at least able to go to bed early.

Emily Andrews' twitter has a cool thread about their day thus far. The girls (school) were really surprised about the visit and they screamed their heads off to show appreciation.

The front page from todays Herald Sun has the headline "Megnificent". Absolutely love it haha.

At Macarthur Girls School Megsie & Harry watched a dance routine.

After the dance routine, the royal couple went to the library to learn about a year 9 project about social justice and women and youth empowerment. Next, Harry and Meghan sat at school desks with 18 pupils in a classroom to learn about the NRL's In League In Harmony program focusing on building a positive sense of self, setting goals, appreciating diversity, developing communication skills and working with others to achieve common goals.

For people who dont know what the NRL is. It stands for National Rugby League and is a team competition between 15 Australian teams & 1 New Zealand side.

Great visit to Bondi. Even if a kumbaya feeling I love it. Both so natural.

I bet Harry made the day if who he gave his leis to.

Really enjoyed the school visit. More great youth initiatives. No doubt the girls were thrilled that day. Lovely dancers too.

Don't feel bad if you leave vegemite off your menu if you go down under. I'd take the kangaroo roast over it.

Thanks to all our Aussies on the ground reporting. It is so fun to hear the descriptions following the action with local color and explanations thrown in. Bedtime on the east coast of USA. I attended the invictus games in Orlando, so uplifting, good luck to the Australia games!

Harry is just getting in the car at Admiralty House to go off to Bridge Climb. (2.30pm and we have live footage from the helicopter.)

Commentators thinking Meghan will be watching the TV action

NSW flag just taken down, ready for the Invictus flag to take it's place.

And Harry is starting to climb the arch.

Such beautiful weather for this event.


And a great photo, Harry, the Prime Minister and the Opera House - all in the Sydney sun -

Absolutely loved Victoria Arbiters comment about Megsie & Harry. She said "They are absolutely Cuckoo about each other". Just about says it all really.

If Meghan heard that, she probably got a big chuckle out of it because, being raised in the US, she probably knows very well that we're all "Cuckoo for Coco-Puffs" (a breakfast cereal here).

The more I watch these two people that are definitely "cuckoo" for each other, the more I'm getting the feeling that along with seeing The Duke and Duchess of Sussex on tour, we're also seeing two people still very much on their honeymoon.

There was a bit of Twitter misinformation saying Harry is doing the meetings with PM and Opposition solo. He’s not, at least not with the PM. Meghan was indeed there. However, photos and footage is not widespread yet for whatever reason. And since she attended the meeting with PM, I don’t see why she wouldn’t have attended the meeting with Opposition leader. I just haven’t seen it with my own eyes.

Some explanation as to where Harry's umbrella went yesterday. These two are absolute gems.

Harry will be joining the host broadcaster (ABC in Australia) of the Invictus games on Sunday night live from Admiraldty House. He will be on the Invictus games today program, in an exclusive conversation with 2 Australian competitors. The 2 Aus athletes will share the stories of their personal journeys to the Invictus Games and the positive impacts on their families.

The show airs on Sunday at 7.40pm Australian time.

Also I don't think this has been made public yet but Megsie & Harry will unveil an official memorial at a private event in the city tomorrow morning. This is before they catch a boat over to Cockatoo Island for the Land Rover Challenge.

You are so in the know Axeyman!

Thanks you for the heads up on both of these things.

Any word on what part of the city tomorrow?

(Hope it's all covered on TV - nothing on my schedule yet.)

I think that is what is so infectious about the tour Osipi - we can all see how wonderful their relationship with each other is.

More great pictures from today's Bridge Climb -
