Prince Harry and Meghan Markle started the fourth day of their royal tour of Australia by heading to Bondi Beach.

While it was an unfortunately overcast morning in Sydney, the royal couple’s visit was brightened up by some colourful locals – literally.

After arriving at the south end of Bondi to a crowd of thousands that lined the beach – Meghan in a striped maxi dress by Martin Grant and espadrille wedges – the Duke and Duchess of Sussex took part in an ‘anti-bad vibes’ circle on the sand.

The event was run by surfing mental health organisation OneWave, which hosts a weekly Fluro Friday event on Bondi Beach to raise awareness of mental health.

After returning from Melbourne on Thursday night, Harry is expected to climb the Harbour Bridge later today, while Meghan is giving it a miss, most likely due to her pregnancy.

Saturday marks the official start of the 2018 Invictus Games, the focus of the pair’s trip.

It’s understood they will travel by boat to attend the Invictus Games on Cockatoo Island, before heading to the Opera House for an evening reception.
