The Royals on tour: Denis crosses to Sydney to get an update

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been greeted by thousands outside the Sydney Opera House on the first day of their Australian tour.

Among them, a 98-year-old war widow who received a warm hug from Prince Harry, in what has been their third meeting.

The Prince introduced his new wife Meghan Markle to Daphne Dunne, in the middle of the crowds waiting to meet the pair.

Last night, Kensington Palace announced they were expecting their first child together, much to the delight of Australian well-wishers today.

They also visited Taronga Zoo this morning.

Simon Duffy, Director of Wildlife Conservation at Taronga Zoo gave them a tour of the zoo.

“Yes it was amazing, great day!” he told Denis Walter.

“They are very charming, and they are very generous with their time.

“We were very fortunate they were here to open Taronga’s new Institute of Science and Learning.”
