The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been given a warm welcome as they stepped onto the sand at Sydney's famous Bondi Beach.

The royal couple were met with cheers as hundreds of well-wishers gathered to greet them at one of Australia's most celebrated destinations.

They were both presented with leis - a pink garland for Meghan and a blue one for Harry - and both took their shoes off before walking along the beach.

Pregnant Meghan had chosen a flowing, monochrome-striped maxi dress by Australian designer Martin Grant for the occasion, while Harry donned a blue shirt and beige chinos.

The parents-to-be then sat down to chat with surfing community group OneWave, which works to raise awareness of mental health issues, ahead of a walkabout to meet members of the public.

Earlier, Meghan played Aussie Rules football, before she and Harry rode on a tram and took in Melbourne's beach.

The couple were met with a rapturous reception at the Royal Botanic Gardens, before they visited a community cafe for lunch and dropped in on a primary school.
