Prince Harry was greeted by thousands of well-wishers in Sydney as he represented the Queen at the International Fleet Review. The younger prince proved especially popular with the assembled young women in the crowd.
This morning he was given a tour of some of the flotilla ships at the city's naval base before inspecting the flotilla.
Harry was joined on board by Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott and governor general Quentin Bryce, the Queen's representative in Australia, before a 100-gun salute.
Among the crowd was naval trainee medic Renee Simmons, 21, who lives six hours' drive away at their base in Aubrey, New South Wales. She said seeing "gorgeous" Harry added to the occasion.
I'm in love. He wears a uniform very well.
