Harry, 34, posed with the group at the top of the climb, but was not joined by his pregnant wife for the excursion.

Just before the Duke arrived, bridge workers climbed up the bridge to lower one of the two Australian flags so Harry could raise the Invictus one. The Duke of Sussex has been touring Australia with his wife, Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, ahead of the start of the games on Saturday.

Harry, who has said he sought counseling in his late twenties to deal with the grief of losing his mother Diana, served in the British Army and campaigns to provide mental health help for soldiers who need it.

Harry, who wore khaki pants and blue shirt, and Meghan, in an ankle-length striped dress, had kicked off their shoes to sit with members of community group OneWave, whose members wore brightly-colored shirts and flower garlands.

As part of their visit with OneWave, the parents-to-be took part in a special Fluro Friday celebration, where people wear bright colours and creative costumes while talking about mental health.

Mr Trump denied he was trying "to cover" for Saudi Arabia. "The Saudis have been great partners in working alongside us on these issues", Pompeo said.

Charlotte Connell, a OneWave member, said Harry spoke of his own experiences seeking counselling more than 20 years after his mother, Princess Diana, died in a vehicle crash in a Paris tunnel in 1997 when he was aged 12.

The sporting event founded by Prince Harry in 2014 gives sick and injured service personnel and veterans the opportunity to compete in sports such as wheelchair basketball and sitting volleyball. "'You're not going to find the right person to speak to straight away, '" Connell said.

"She said it's so good for healing her mind", Connell added.

Earlier, Harry and Meghan looked relaxed as they visited Bondi Beach.

Harry and Meghan will also visit Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand during their 16-day tour.
