Royals bring the sun to Sydney

Kim Westcott, Friday April 18, 2014 - 11:20 EST

Since the the royals stepped off the plane on Wednesday afternoon, Sydney has turned on the great weather.

The sun is out and shining as the Duke and Duchess brave the Royal Easter Show and then head out to Manly beach today.

This great weather is likely to continue for whole Easter holiday, with Sydney set to have the driest Easter long-weekend since 2006, much to the delight of royals and Sydney-siders alike. The brilliant weather is thanks to a large high pressure ridge over the eastern seaboard.

Although there is a distinct chill in the fresh morning air, the daytime temperatures will hover in low-to-mid twenties for most of the week, with the clear skies remaining until at least Wednesday.
