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

Pregnant meghan memorably helped out to hold Harry's umbrella has he addressed drought-stricken farmers in Dubbo on October 17.

Someone in the crowd first told Meghan they thought the girl looked like her, to which she replied: "I was literally about to say the same thing".

Britain's Prince Harry and wife Meghan, Duchess of Sussex traveled to Dubbo in rural New South Wales, Australia to unveil a new aircraft for the Royal Flying Doctors Service.

Her name is Daphne Dunne, and the 98-year-old has actually met Prince Harry twice before.

They will then join fans in Victoria Park for a picnic to celebrate community spirit where Prince Harry will make a speech.

They had earlier visited a farm hit by the drought and Harry recalled his own stay on an Australian farm 15 years ago, where he said he was chased by countless cattle and perfected the Aussie salute of swatting flies.

Anyway, if it would improve your day to see sweet footage of a lovely kid pulling Prince Harry's beard, you can catch the whole clip below.

They had a ideal start to their 16-day visit to Australia, Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand in Sydney on Tuesday.

The Dubbo stop is part of a jam-packed schedule of 76 engagements across 16 days with the royals visiting Sydney, Melbourne and Queensland's Fraser Island as well as Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand.

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. On Friday the prince will scale the Sydney Harbour Bridge and hoist a flag to open the Invictus Games, a sports championship for wounded military personnel.
