Earlier today he visited the Macquarie University Hospital and met members of the public outside the Sydney Opera House.

The prince later described the opportunity to meet the Australian public as "fantastic" and admitted he never expected so many people to turn up.

"I actually thought we'd turn up and there would only be about ten people there," the Daily Mail quoted him as saying.

"It's a wonderful opportunity for me to say thank you to them. They've made me feel so at home here."

Prince Harry is due to fly to New Zealand at the weekend when his deployment in Australia comes to an end.
