Prince Harry has said goodbye to the people of Australia during a walkabout in Sydney, with one fan even going in for a kiss on the lips.

Hundreds of people gathered at the Sydney Opera House to see the prince, who reaches the end of a month-long attachment with the Australian Defence Force (ADF) on Friday.

Some of those present among the enthusiastic crowds carried banners reading "His Royal Hotness" and "Harry for PM" - perhaps in a nod to today's elections back home in the United Kingdom.

One extra-keen fan even tried to kiss the royal on the lips as he passed through the crowds.

Harry has been in Australia for the birth of his niece, Princess Charlotte, who was born on 2 May - moving him down to fifth in line for the throne.Despite the demotion, Harry has described his brother's daughter as "absolutely beautiful" and said he cannot wait to meet her.

Harry, an Army captain, will leave the forces in June. During his time in Australia, he has spent time training on helicopter simulators at barracks in Sydney, as well as training with the Special Air Service in Perth and working with members of Norforce, a mostly indiginous unit which patrols northern parts of the country.

Prince Harry has said he is looking forward to meeting "beautiful" princess Charlotte. The prince was speaking at a press conference in Sydney, Australia where he has been meeting wounded soldiers.
