Many remarks have been made by the Australian media that one European prince met his future wife in the Australian city when Prince Fredrick of Denmark was introduced to the future Princess Mary in a bar in Sydney.

Earlier in the day Harry joined the Prime Minister for the International Fleet Review, which was held to celebrate Australia's naval centenary.

Thousands gathered at the picturesque harbour-front to catch a glimpse of the Prince who spent time meeting many of the fans who had turned out to greet him.
