The Royal Tour of Oceana continues with 6 engagements in the city of Melbourne. Harry and Meghan began their visit by greeting the crowds on their arrival at Government House. A little boy named Gavin offered Meghan a necklace which she put on right away; she also got other goodies. The couple were about 20 minutes late because of a truck that lost its load on the highway.

While at Government House, Harry and Meghan attended a reception hosted by the Governor of Victoria Linda Dessau. They met Young Leaders from the State of Victoria, and indulged in sports such as Australian Rules Football. They also got to play with a racing circuit. VIDEO

Their next stop was a restaurant in Fitzroy named Charcoal Lane, where Their Royal Highnesses first viewed a mural which pays tribute to the Aboriginal identity of Fitzroy. They also joined a cooking session with young people involved in the Mission Australia training programme for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people. Meghan then changed outfits before leaving the restaurant. VIDEO

The Duke and Duchess then visited Albert Park Primary School, where they got a warm reception. They visited the school’s Paradise garden and learnt more about their compost bins, their worm farm and vegetable garden. VIDEO

The Duke & Duchess of Sussex visit Australia: Day 2, Dubbo

The Royal Tour of Oceania continues with a day of engagements in the town of Dubbo, located in New South Wales. Dubbo is a city thas has been affected for the past few years by drought. Funnily enough, Harry & Meghan brought with them the British rain as it started pouring in the afternoon. Harry and Meghan were first greeted upon their arrival at the airport by many children waiting to meet them as well as the Mayor Ben Shields. They got pretty cozy with 5 year old Luke Vincent, who kept tickling his beard. VIDEO

The first stop of the day was at the Royal Flying Doctor Service base, which is located right in Dubbo Airport. The couple got to discuss with doctors and witness first-hand a simulation of woman in labour, as well as a baby mannequin in an incubator. Harry and Meghan have also unveiled a brand new aircraft to celebrate the RDNS’s 90th anniversary. The team gave Harry & Meghan a pilot teddy bear for Babby Sussex when they left. VIDEO

The second engagement happened at Mountain View Farm, the property of The Woodleys. The farm was badly hit by the drought and the Sussexes got to learn and understand the hardships they face. They also helped feed the cattle before enjoying some tea. For the occasion, Meghan baked a banana bread the night before at Admiralty House. VIDEO

For lunch, Meghan & Harry attended a picnic/barbecue at Victoria Park and engaged in various activites. Harry made a speech, which you can read here, and because it was heavily raining, Meghan decided to hold his umbrella for him. VIDEO

For their final engagement, Harry and Meghan went to Dubbo Senior College, where they separated in groups of two with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders: Meghan with the girls, Harry with the boys. They were supposed to play netball, but because of the rain, it didn’t happen. VIDEO

The Duke & Duchess of Sussex visit Australia: Day 1, Sydney

The Royal Tour of Oceania has finally begun for Harry & Meghan with Sydney ! Following their pregnancy news, the parents-to-be began a day packed of engagements in the Australian city.

Bright and early, The Duke & Duchess of Sussex were formally welcomed at Admiralty House by the Governor-General of Australia, His Excellency General the Honourable Sir Peter Cosgrove and his wife Lynne, as well as the representatives of each country taking part in the Invictus Games. They were gifted Akubra hats, and two items for Baby Sussex: a stuffed kangaroo and baby uggs, which Harry seemed really happy to receive (these are not the only gifts they received for their baby that day).

The couple then visited Taronga Zoo, where they opened the new Institute of Science and Learning. The Institute is a living laboratory for conservation education and scientific investigation, built to empower the scientists of tomorrow. The Duke & Duchess unveiled a plaque and cut the ribbon, making the Insitute official open for the public. Harry and Meghan got to spend some time with koalas and a short-legged echinda. VIDEO

They then left the zoo in a boat which sailed through Sydney Harbour, heading to Sydney Opera House. Sydney harbour is mostly famous because of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, which The Duke will climb on Friday to fly the flag of the Invictus Games. For this little journey, Meghan decided to ditch her heels and wore flats.

Upon arriving at Sydney Opera House, Harry and Meghan got to watch a rehearsal of ‘Spring 2018’ by the Bangarra Dance Theatre, an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander dance company. They then met well-wishers who were waiting outside. Harry presented Daphne Dunne to Meghan. Daphne is an 98 year old woman and widow of Lieutenant Albert Chowne who died during during World War II, and has met Harry twice before in 2015 and 2017. It seems Meghan was fully aware of who she was as she mentionned that she’d heard so much about her from Harry. VIDEO

Harry and Meghan returned to Admiralty House for their final engagement of the day, as they attended a reception hosted by the Governor-General. Harry made a speech and mentionned for the first time Baby Sussex ! Meghan got to talk with Australian singer-songwriter Missy Higgins, her partner Dan Lee and their 9 week old daughter Luna. VIDEO

While I won’t mention what Meghan was wearing – she was positively glowing though – I would like to point out that Meghan was wearing a bracelet and butterfly earrings which belonged to her mother-in-law Diana, Princess of Wales.
