In Pictures: Meghan tries her hand at Australian rules football

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex visited Melbourne on the third day of their tour in Australia.

After meeting huge crowds of well-wishers, the couple were treated to a fitness display in the grounds of the city's Government House.

There, Meghan got to grips with an Australian rules football – and was even convinced to throw one.

"I'm not sure I will be good!," she joked.

Later the couple raced miniature F1 cars before visiting South Melbourne Beach.
