IMHO a PDA involves kissing and making out or squeezing......to be honest Zara and her husband show more actual PDA and I remember growing up seeing Charles kissing Diana all the time. We have only seen Harry and Meghan kiss twice.

AlowVera,

Personally, I consider hand holding to be PDA, but everyone has differing opinions of course.

Come to think of it, even a smile can be construed as showing affection. So can a glance across a crowded room and many other examples.

Harry and Meghan publicly demonstrate their feelings for each other in ways that are unmistakable. It definitely rules out the supposition that they've married for any other reason besides love. That's for sure.

They are on their way - footage of the couple boarding their plane to Queensland is now on the internet.

(Sorry fashion-watches - I can post photos, but can't do video.)

Meghan in a dress - full skirted, sleeveless, plummy-brown colour. Longish length, hair in a pony-tail. Sandals or thongs.

Harry accessorised by carrying his own baggage - and a pair of sunnies in his mouth.

I don’t think it’s “weird” in America if a couple chooses not to hold hands. Plenty don’t.

I really don’t define hand holding as PDA either. Kissing, yes. Hand holding is about as low key as it gets imo. To me PDA is more distracting to others. I wouldn’t define hand holding to be distracting.

I think it’s nice that Harry and Meghan hold hands. Given Harry’s personality, I don’t think it’s the least bit surprising either. I find it annoying that Meghan “clinging” to Harry is put on her. Like it’s all her. Seems to be a mutual preference to me.

Hi Tarlita. I'm out soon for the rest of the day, so wil be missing live things - but recording them.

Glad Sydney Channel 9 is doing two specials on the Fraser Island action.

As a Queenslander Tarlita - do you know if they will they have to fly from Hervey Bay to Brissie tomorrow to get the flight to Fiji?

I think William and Kate had a flight change there.

Isn't that were Kate picked up that souvenir stone on the airport tarmac. (Or is my Royal watching brain a bit fried at this stage.)

Plane just landed at Hervey Bay - coming down the stairs hand in hand.

Going their seperate ways already - no public arrival for Meghan by the look of it.

Got into different vehicles at the bottom of the plane staircase.

Harry in a gold bus!

Yes they will have to fly to Brisbane to make the flight to beautiful Fiji.
Sorry I don't remember Kates souvenir stone. Too many years back for me.
Hervey Bay has been a great retirement place for people. Very laid back. Lots of whiting - fish and flathead caught here unless you go out into the deep.
I have just seen H&M disembark from the plane about 5 minutes ago.

Thanks Tarlita. (I'll check Google re Kate when I get a moment.)

Meghan is heading to the Hervey Bay Marina to board a boat - the "Tasman Adventurer" which is a whale-watching vessel normally.

A crowd is gathering there though, and TV live reporter, so may be some footage/coverage of her.

And aerial footage is following Meghan's vehicle.

Harry heading off to board a barge to go see the whales while eating lunch.

Such an enormous crowd at the marina to see Meghan. She didn't take much time with the people there, straight onto the boat really.

And Harry's gold bus on the barge and he's out waving to people as he sails away.

And now Meghan's sailing away.

Great aerial coverage.

Ok so Harry is on the 4wd barge as he will be driving to Pile Valley - the rainforest, then across to Lake Mc Kenzie etc. There are no proper roads on the island. Just sand tracks for 4 wheel drive vehicles only.
Whereas Meghan is on a nice boat off to Kingfisher resort, to relax in airconditioning and gorgeous tropical foods and fruit.

You sound like you know the area well Tarlita.

75 mile beach on Fraser Island is very popular with families camping in tents at Easter. It gets quite crowded. You camp in the tree line and walk across a wide expanse of beach and catch your fish breakfast with a big surf rod. Just need to watch out for 4wd's travelling up and down the beach. Of course Kingfisher resort is available if camping is not your style.
A lot of families go there every year usually at Easter.

From the same opinion piece: "As for that ‘hand-baked’ banana loaf she presented to residents in the town of Dubbo, no one believes she made it."

Because everyone knows banana bread can only be baked by the finest pastry chefs in the world...

I am cracking up at them following both of them separately, split screen and all.

The reporters are saying Meghan will likely do the walkabout which is around 3pm,

Platell hates Meghan. Her ranting is expected and predictable. She is clearly the minority cause the people they are actually visiting don't share her opinion based on the coverage.

They just said no live coverage of Harry at Pile Valley due to it being a dead spot for satellite coverage.

LaRae

Its funny how the UK papers are concern trolling Harry about showing emotion. Harry is the same Harry that he has always been. But now all of the sudden he is breaking protocol by hugging people? They act like noone ever followed the royal family before. Why is hugging wrong because of Meghan but before Meghan it was fine and dandy?

Correction: AP isn't trolling Harry. AP is trolling Meghan for holding her own husband's hand.

Meghan didn't go to the Kingfisher Resort, but to a private place on Fraser Island.

She went by car.

(Not so private there hasn't been a photo posted already though.)
