Now 98 years old, her age hasn't stopped Dunne from getting out into the public to be reunited with her favourite member of the royal family, as well as Meghan Markle, who has been given the official stamp of approval!

Prince Harry has paid a touching tribute to Dubbo as it battles its drought crisis in an uplifting speech delivered amid an unseasonal downpour.

The Duke of Sussex joked "I've got my wife" as he was offered an umbrella before taking to the lectern at Dubbo's Victoria Park, as Meghan provided shelter from his side.

Locals are excited for the royal visit.

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.

"I was very concerned once he started rubbing Prince Harry's face and his hair, but Prince Harry was completely gracious and was so polite and realised what was happening and (Luke's) infatuation with his beard", Luke's school principal, Anne van Dartel told the Seven Network.

As they arrived, it started to pour but that didn't stop the prince from addressing the crowd. "That's what makes pieces special, the connection you have to them".

"She's normally in bed at 10.30am but we had to stay up for this".

"We can cope with a few months of drought but this has been two years and the hay has already been affected for next year".

"But you need to know that part of being strong and tough is having the courage to ask for help when you need it".

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.

"I am shaking, it was wonderful, I am speechless", Sovanah said afterwards.

The couple will also travel to New Zealand, Fiji and Tonga on their first global since marrying. They will be in Melbourne on Thursday.
