Earlier in the day the Duke and Duchess of Sussex made a surprise visit to a western Sydney girls school.

Britain's Prince Harry climbed Australia's Harbour Bridge on Friday, accompanied by Prime Minister Scott Morrison, during a royal tour that broke with the staid routine of such events to involve the royal couple in a group hug on Bondi Beach.

Just before the Duke arrived, bridge workers climbed up the bridge to lower one of the two Australian flags so Harry could raise the Invictus one.

The sporting event founded by Prince Harry in 2014 gives sick and injured service personnel and veterans the opportunity to compete in sports such as wheelchair basketball and sitting volleyball.

"Wow, it looks wonderful", she said, "I hope it does all the things it promises".

"She said it's so good for healing her mind", Connell added.

After the initial meeting, Harry and Meghan were treated to a special dance performance to the Frankie Goes to Hollywood version of The Power of Love.

Though she didn't participate in the climb, the 37-year-old Duchess of Sussex still got her fitness on while overseas.

The sun was shining over Sydney Harbour as Prince Harry and his bridge climb group scaled more than 1,300 steps to get to the top of the iconic structure.
