If there was a competition to find Britain's/Canada's/Australia's most likeable royal, surely British soldier Prince Harry would win it hands down.

This is the moment a cheeky blonde asked 30-year-old Prince Harry to marry her and ended up locking lips with the blushing royal.

Victoria McRae, 21, was dressed in a sequined Australian flag mini dress and tiara as she asked the fifth in line to the throne to marry her outside the Sydney Opera House on Thursday.

But when he politely said he would have to get back to her, she asked for a kiss instead.

'He let me kiss him on the cheek but then I went in for it. The rest was history,' Ms McRae said. 'It was amazing, it's meant to be, there's a lot of chemistry there I'd say.

'I said I'd proposed twice before, that it was my third time lucky, and my sign said last chance so I said - have a think about it.

'I kissed the (New South Wales) premier (Mike Baird) too but I didn't know who he was. They had to tell me that. Harry was better to kiss and I got Harry's lips, I only kissed the premier on the cheek.'

The prince - who is known as Captain Wales in the army - also had a touching moment with elderly Daphne Dunne who was wearing her WWII veteran husband's Victoria Cross Medal.

Prince Harry arrived at the Sydney Opera House to greet thousands of fans on Thursday morning as his month-long Australian military deployment comes to a close.

Wearing army fatigues and a black beret, the fifth in line to the throne disembarked from a boat at the Opera House just after 12:30pm and spent time talking, shaking hands and having his photo taken with fans.

He then travelled to Sydney's Macquarie University Hospital to visit British solider Ali Spearing who is being fitted with prosthetics after losing both legs while on deployment in Afghanistan in 2011.

'Can I think about it?' What Prince Harry told cheeky blonde Victoria, 21, when she asked him to marry her... and stole MUCH more than a kiss on the cheek from the blushing royal

This is the moment a cheeky blonde asked Prince Harry to marry her and ended up locking lips with the blushing royal.

Victoria McRae, 21, was dressed in a sequined Australian flag mini dress and tiara as she asked the fifth in line to the throne to marry her outside the Sydney Opera House on Thursday.

But when he politely said he would have to get back to her, she asked for a kiss instead.

'He let me kiss him on the cheek but then I went in for it. The rest was history,' Ms McRae said. 'It was amazing, it's meant to be, there's a lot of chemistry there I'd say.

'I said I'd proposed twice before, that it was my third time lucky, and my sign said last chance so I said - have a think about it.

'I kissed the (New South Wales) premier (Mike Baird) too but I didn't know who he was. They had to tell me that. Harry was better to kiss and I got Harry's lips, I only kissed the premier on the cheek.'

Prince Harry arrived at the Sydney Opera House to greet thousands of fans on Thursday morning as his month-long Australian military deployment comes to a close.

'I thought we were going to turn up and there would be 10 people there, so it's a wonderful opportunity for me to say thank you to them... they have made me feel so at home here,' Prince Harry told reporters.

'It's going to be hard to leave - I don't want to go home, I want to stay here.'

Asked about the kiss with Ms McRae, Prince Harry cheekily replied: 'I got more than one kiss'.

Prince Harry got more than he bargained for when he agreed to kiss Victoria McRae on the cheek outside the Sydney Opera House

He then travelled to Sydney's Macquarie University Hospital to visit British solider Ali Spearing who is being fitted with prosthetics after losing both legs while on deployment in Afghanistan in 2011.

'The surgery went really, really well …. He is over the moon and thrilled to bits to be up and walking on a new set of legs,' he said.

Prince Harry told reporters at the hospital he was looking forward to meeting his new niece Princess Charlotte and said: 'I've been given a lot of cuddly toys from this morning' to give to her.

He also joked about the media keeping the public up to date on his eating habits this past week after he was photographed ordering hamburgers and pork rolls from local eateries.

Harry casually chatted and mingled with the excited crowd at the Opera House

During his visit to the Opera House, Harry stopped and talked to a group of young students from St Mary's South Public School, who had gathered excitedly to meet the Prince.

He chatted to the awestruck schoolchildren and told jokes, even calling for one young female teacher to come down for a hug - much to the delight of her students.

The relaxed-looking prince then moved to greet waiting fans, stopping to chat and shaking plenty of hands. Along with Ms McRae's 'Marry me Harry' message, 'His Royal Hotness' and 'Gingers Rule' were held up by fans hoping for their chance to meet the prince.

He good-naturedly refused a hug from royal fan Megan Santamaria, 22, from the Five Dock suburb of Sydney. ' I'd have to hug everybody!' he said. Walking past the press pen, he joked 'I'm not going to shake your hands!.'

Elizabeth Stanley, 18, from the Pennant Hills region of Sydney asked Harry for a selfie but he refused. 'No I don't do selfies' he told her.

She then asked if her friend could take a photo of them both, and he happily obliged. 'Maybe you can photoshop me in!' he said.

Prince Harry took the time to chat to young children in the crowd who had been waiting hours for him to arrive
