The media is mad for Harry-Meghan sightings at the moment. They're panting for an engagement. I too don't believe Meghan would make that massive trip for just a few days. Harry has other things on his plate when he arrives here in Oz. It's a working trip, not a holiday.

Sounds like an exciting and worthwhile trip! I'm glad that Harry is able to play polo again after some months with a bad back when he wasn't able to play at all. Helping to break the fast after Ramadam sounds intriguing. Wonder what sort of food he will try?

Harry seems to be the adventurous type so I bet he tries a little bit of everything and really gets into the mood of celebrating the festivities. I find it touching that Harry is doing this because it indicates that he respects and wants to be a part of a beautiful holiday that is so important to our Muslim friends. Its another example of not being there just for the events but being there to embrace the people and culture he's among.

This will be an interesting trip to follow Harry on.

I agree. Melbourne is fantastic, and great place for afl.

I am looking forward to this trip to Sydney and Singapore. His tours are a bit more exciting to watch. Hope we see him trying a few things on the trip.

I'm sure they're all primed up and ready to go and will do their country proud! Many of them have probably been training since the last Invictus Games.

Cepe Smith reports on her Twitter that Harry also attended a reception afterwards for the British Invictus team at Plaisterers Hall in London.

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.)

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...ting-fans.html

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!
