Prince Harry Receives Hug From Kid With Down Syndrome In Australia


During their first royal tour as as newlyweds, Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, greeted well-wishers outside Australia's Sydney Opera House.

Meghan and Harry will be heading to Melbourne on Thursday for the next part of their first global tour as a married couple, before they spend a long weekend in Sydney together.

He said: "We are pleased to have the opportunity to host the duke and duchess, to show them innovative programs by young Victorians and to introduce them to our next generation of leaders".

"She made it last night when she heard she was coming to a family home, she had to bring a plate", she said. She's done so well. She said they're doing 76 engagements in 16 days, with maybe one rest in the middle.

The royal mother-to-be has a close group of girlfriends and has been sure to use her newfound position to support their businesses. "They're both great with kids".

It was a power move, to be honest, much like that of a koala which yesterday responded to the royal touch by looking incredibly, comically unimpressed.

Kensington Palace revealed Meghan's mum, Doria Ragland, was "very happy about this lovely news" and "looks forward to welcoming her first grandchild". No wonder she's feeling a bit exhausted!

"She said if you go to someone's house you always bring something, so she did", Benita Woodley, a fifth-generation member of the clan, told the Mirror.

A little boy in Australia broke royal protocol when he reached out to touch Prince Harry and the prince didn't seem to mind. "He is excited and I'm not going to let the media take any of that away from him or from Meg - they'll work it out in their own space and time", she says.

The Duke of Sussex said: "The rich traditions of the Australian outback are legendary". Sign up to our newsletter to get all of our celebrity, royal and lifestyle news delivered directly to your inbox.
