“You’ll also notice that we had a roof on our boat earlier after last year’s downpour, and luckily Sydney’s sun is shining today, so thank you for organizing the weather,” he joked during the speech.

“We’re both absolutely delighted to be here, and really impressed to see you serving beer and tea at an afternoon in true Aussie style,” Harry said, garnering laughs from the audience. “But genuinely, thank you for the incredibly warm welcome and the chance to meet so many Aussies from all walks of life. And, we also genuinely couldn’t think of a better place to announce, uh, the, uh, the upcoming baby. Boy or girl. So thank you very, very much.”
