The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are back in Sydney today and so far they've taken part in an extremely colourful Fluoro Friday event.

The royal couple were treated to a demonstration of the RFDS' capabilities and mission, meeting members of the long-running service before participating in a ceremony to inaugurate the new aircraft.

Meghan Markle couldn't hide her excitement at receiving a rather unusual gift from a royal fan at Bondi Beach this morning.

"Woah, I was not expecting that", she then said.

About halfway up Prince Harry stopped at India Brown who had a sign emblazoned with "Been here since 4am, loved you since I was 8", reducing her to shakes and tears.

Schoolgirls Jasmine and Lily got up at 5am to get their prime position and shook hands with the duchess, drawing her over with their homemade sign.

The tram ride took the royals from Albert Park Primary School, where the couple had visited the school's garden and learnt about their sustainability program, to South Melbourne beach.

Composed as she is, Meghan Markle isn't immune to the occasional scare!

The Duchess of Sussex, who is about 12 weeks along, also spoke out about her pregnancy, saying it was "like having jet lag without actually traveling".

Raising awareness surrounding mental health issues has been a cornerstone of Harry and Meghan, as well as Prince William and Duchess Kate's, humanitarian work as royals.

This morning Prince Harry and Meghan Markle went to a cloudy Bondi Beach for an anti-bad-vibes circle (classic Bondi), and behold: this guy's golden trousers stole the show.
