AUSSIE royal watchers will catch a fleeting glimpse of Prince Harry today.

The fourth in line to Queen Elizabeth's throne landed in Sydney about 5am to spend a month with the Australian Army.

Prince Harry travelled on a RAAF jet to Canberra where he will lay a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and tour the War Memorial, World War I and Afghanistan exhibits this morning.


The helicopter pilot is expected to spend time meeting the public today before reporting for duty to defence chief Mark Binskin.

Prince Harry will work with the SAS in Perth, indigenous North-West Mobile Force (NORFORCE) soldiers in the Northern Territory and Sydney's 6th Aviation Regiment.

"Prince Harry is tremendously looking forward to starting his four-week attachment with the ADF," a spokesman for Prince Harry said.

Prince Harry and his father Prince Charles will visit Gallipoli for Anzac Day commemorations.
