Daniella Clews, 12, and Sovanah Doherty, 11 from Dubbo West School also had hugs from the couple.

Harry said the rain was "a gift" for drought-hit farmers, and spoke of how visiting the rural town reminded him of his time working as a jackaroo on a remote ranch in Australia during his gap year.

Prince Harry and Meghan have arrived in Dubbo, where they have been greeted by local officials - and a bunch of schoolchildren who jumped up and down as their plane landed.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex flew into the central western city on Wednesday morning, where the drought is biting hard - though showers are forecast for the day of the royal visit.

One very special familiar face was Daphne Dunne, a 98-year-old war widow who has met Harry on three previous occasions in Sydney. To highlight the plight of farmers the couple had tea with a family on their farm.

"You are the salt of the earth. Honest, hard-working, and as tough as they come", the prince told the Dubbo community gathered in a park as heavy rain fell.


Only in the past few weeks have some areas begun to see rain - although the downpours remain patchy.

The royals began a 16-day Pacific tour on Monday, landing in Sydney and nearly immediately announcing the duchess´ pregnancy.

Harry and Meghan will head to Melbourne tomorrow for the next leg of their tour, which will also take in New Zealand, Fiji and Tonga.

He first noted Dunne when he visited Sydney in 2015 and saw that she was wearing a Victoria Cross.

Interestingly, the frock is called the "Blessed Dress", which is a feeling that surely rings true for the excited parents-to-be who only announced they were expecting the day before.

Their trip coincides with the Invictus Games in Sydney from October 20-27.
