This morning Prince Harry and Meghan Markle went to a cloudy Bondi Beach for an anti-bad-vibes circle (classic Bondi), and behold: this guy's golden trousers stole the show.

The day ran almost an hour overtime, but that didn't stop thousands of locals staying put at venues for a glimpse of the popular Duke and Duchess of Sussex - if not a hug.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have a busy day ahead of them on day four of their royal tour.

British royals Harry and Meghan kicked off their shoes and donned tropical garlands Friday, as they hit Sydney's famed Bondi beach for the latest stop on their Australian tour.

Prince Harry hugs fan India Brown as he arrives at Government Drive.

"Harry said "it took me not six months, but 18 months to find the right person to speak to; you're not going to find the right person to speak to straight away".


About halfway up Prince Harry stopped at India Brown who had a sign emblazoned with "Been here since 4am, loved you since I was 8", reducing her to shakes and tears.

Prince Harry was fascinated by an Aussie lifeguard's big feet. "But the Duke said there's never too many bananas".

The royals' 16-day tour also includes visits to New Zealand, Tonga and Fiji.

Ms Connell said both Harry and Meghan used exercise as a way of keeping well. As they travelled around Melbourne, the pair participated in a beach clean up, met with women working to get more involved in sporting events, greeted endless crowds, and even rode a local tram with some school children.

The Duchess of Sussex has compared pregnancy to jetlag.
