On day 3 of their australian tour, the Duke & Duchess of Sussex flown away to Melbourne city. They’ve been welcomed by thousands of people in front of the gouvernment house and greeted with a lot of gifts.
Then, they attended an official reception at the Government House of Melbourne. Meghan and Harry met young leaders from across Victoria and were showcased two F1 miniatures cars which they got to race. As a big dog lover, Meghan even met a cute labrador named Williow : a guide dog for blind person or person with low vision.
The Duke & Duchess of Sussex joined a cooking session alongside young people involved in the Charcoal Lane Mission Australia training programme for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander. In that same note, they viewed a mural painted outside the restaurant which pays homage to Fitzroy’s Aboriginal identity and made by a group of street artists. The mural references the cultural connections Fitzroy has to Australia’s first peoples.
In the afternoon, the couple visited Albert Park Primary school. They joined this school Paradise garden to learn how their students use compost bins, a wrom farm and a vegetable garden.
After visiting the primary school, Meghan & Harry took one of Melbourne’s famous tram to head off to South Melbourne beach.
For their last engagement of the day, the Duke & Duchess of Sussex joined a BeachPatrol clean and met some life savers at South Melbourne Beach. Beach Patrol is raising awareness about the issue of plastic in the oceans and the environment. It’s very important everyone: throw everything in a bin or keep it in your coat pockets. We have to think about the future of our oceans and beautiful nature.
