Duchess Meghan Markle baked her own banana bread in Australia

This koala was really not impressed by Prince Harry or Meghan Markle

Their 16-day official royal tour will also include visits to Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand, but the main focus of the trip will be the Invictus Games, which celebrate wounded, sick and injured veterans.

The secret behind Prince Harry's ring has been revealed as a smart ring that tracks his sleep and fitness.

The Duchess of Sussex gave a touching nod to her close friend Serena Williams by stepping out in a jacket from the tennis star's clothing line on day two of her visit to Australia.

It takes constant readings of body temperature, heart rate and movement and allows the user to see the results by using the accompanying app.

A teenage girl cried tears of joy and threw her arms around the prince as she clutched a hand-written banner with the words: "Been here since 4am".

Harry Wilson ready to rival Gareth Bale for free-kicks on Wales duty
Harry Wilson proved his stunning free-kick against Manchester United was not just a one-off as he sent another scorcher into the top corner on worldwide duty.

"You're gonna get me in trouble", Harry joked as he embraced her.

Meghan and Harry announced the duchess' pregnancy on Monday. That day, they also tried chargrilled kangaroo and had a go at Aussie rules football.

Wearing an indigo Dion Lee Folded Sail dress, the duchess joined her husband for a demonstration of some Melbourne students' miniature race cars.

Bookies are already betting on which name the royal couple will choose, with Diana, Arthur and Alice being the frontrunners, according to online gambling company BetFair.

While Meghan showed a keen interest, she wasn't prepared for the sudden blast that greeted her. Cue puff of smoke and - much to Harry's amusement - a giggly yelp not unlike Julia Roberts's jewelry box moment in Pretty Woman.
