After arriving in Dubbo, Australia on the second day of a 16-day tour of Australia and the South Pacific on Tuesday, Prince Harry received an adorable hug from a kid who was enthralled with his beard.

The Duchess of Sussex showed off her culinary skills and generosity by baking some banana bread for tea on the Woodley family farm outside Dubbo.

Dubbo Royale has been created for the royal visit.

"You will continually be amazed how your life changes for the better once you put your hand up", said Harry.

"You must not silently suffer and, if I may speak personally, we are all in this together, because asking for help was one of the best decisions I ever made".

"You are the backbone of this country".

"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".

In an issue close to his heart, he urged those facing mental health problems due to the tough times plaguing rural Australia to seek help.




Harry and Meghan will be in Dubbo to reveal a new plane for the Royal Flying Doctor service, now celebrating 98 years of flying, as well as visiting a drought-stricken farm.

Prince Harry has reunited with his No. 1 fan, 98-year-old Daphne Dunne.

This will be followed by a trip to a local property to see first-hand the hardships farmers are facing with the drought.

Meghan looked delighted, while Harry seemed more bemused.

In the town, shops and pubs were decorated with banners, bunting and royal portraits.

Named "Dubbo Royale" the beer is a British-style lager that includes a "fruity" US West Coast component to include Meghan, News.com.au reports.

"It's like a marriage in a beer can", bar licensee Ryan Mackintosh told local publication the Daily Liberal.

In addition to receiving her very first baby gifts, checking out the Sydney Opera House, and meeting Australian heads of state, Meghan Markle's found one thing she probably didn't expect Down Under: a lookalike.
