Harry and Meghan Go Barefoot on Sydney Beach in Support of Mental Health

SYDNEY – Britain’s Prince Harry and his wife Meghan ditched their shoes on Friday and embraced with a group of Australians to raise awareness about the importance of mental health, on the iconic Bondi beach in eastern Sydney.

The Royal couple met with the members of OneWave, a surfing community group that promotes mental health and personal well-being, during the “Fluro Friday” session, in which personal matters are discussed.

Along with OneWave co-founders Grant Trebilco and Sam Schumacher, the couple, who received Hawaiian crowns, participated by sitting on the sand and hugging a group of locals in the so-called “anti-bad vibes” circle.

Meghan, who wore a brown striped dress by Australian designer Martin Grant, said in that session that she woke up at 4:30 in the morning to practice yoga and she emphasized that “it was so good for healing your mind,” according to local media.

Bondi Beach, popular among young people and tourists for surfing and its bars and restaurants, began the “Fluro Friday” in 2013, an initiative that now has spread to more than a hundred beaches in California, Hawaii, and Mexico, among others, according to the OneWave website.

On the fifth day of their Oceania tour, Prince Harry will climb the Sydney Harbor Bridge to raise the banner of the Invictus Games, created by himself in 2014 to provide an opportunity for veterans and military personnel on duty with disabilities, to be held Oct. 20-28.

In addition, the couple, who are expecting their first baby in the spring of 2019, will later Friday meet with Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison and some of the Invictus Games competitors.

The Dukes of Sussex are on a tour that will last until the end of the month and they will also visit Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand.
