From Sydney Confidential
IF Sydney can deliver one thing to the world's biggest rock star, it's a beautiful day.
The city has turned on its best for U2 frontman Bono, his wife Alison Stewart and children Jordan, 17, Memphis Eve, 15, Elijah, 7, and John Abraham, 5, since the Irish royal family touched down in Sydney at the weekend.
They have been taking in Sydney Harbour by luxury speedboat, dining in the city's best eateries and for the youngest two, a day at the zoo.
The family are staying at the Point Piper mansion Altona, owned by local publishing giants Deke and Eve Miskin, and rented out just two months ago to Naomi Watts and boyfriend Liev Schreiber.
It has been an action-packed break from Dublin's icy winter since the family flew in by private jet on Sunday - non-stop swimming in Altona's pool and a waterfront tour of prime eastern suburbs real estate including historic Strickland House at Vaucluse.
All four headed out on Tuesday night for pizza at Pizza Mario in Darlinghurst and on Wednesday Bono, Stewart and the young boys headed by water to Taronga Zoo wharf where they were met by a car and taken on a high-security tour of the zoo.
Onlookers said Bono looked relaxed and happily signed autographs for fans.
"He was really good about it all," one Taronga visitor told Confidential.
"I stuck my hand out and he shook my hand and said hello. He was really nice about it."
Irish Royalty? Hahahahahah. That's funny. Sometimes Australian papers come up with the funniest stuff known to man.
