Meghan Markle and Prince Harry given 'long list' of baby names

The day ran almost an hour overtime, but that didn't stop thousands of locals staying put at venues for a glimpse of the popular Duke and Duchess of Sussex - if not a hug.

"She'd never seen cotton used in flower arrangements before so when someone handed her a bouquet with cotton in it she turned to one of her minders said how lovely it was", she said.

One royal admirer seemed to have a suggestion.

The Duchess of Sussex has been travelling non-stop this week, jetting around Australia on her royal tour with husband Prince Harry.

The welcome included one young fan, Luke Vincent, who broke the ropeline to embrace the prince, playfully playing with his beard.

The Duchess was so excited about the gift she even got Harry's attention to show him.

The royal couple also visited a school which is focused on improving education of indigenous Australians, and attended a community event in Dubbo, where Harry praised the area's farmers for their endurance in the face of the hardship of the drought.

The Duchess of Sussex will give birth to her first child in Spring 2019.

Harry, 34, and Meghan, 37, are on Day 4 of their Royal Tour of the Pacific, having spent Thursday in the Victorian capital.

The couple announced they are expecting their first child upon arriving in Australia.

Despite her TV star status, Sylvia was forced to stay behind a barricade as Harry and his wife Meghan Markle spent time on Bondi Beach.
