Prince Harry and Meghan begin tour of drought-stricken Dubbo

Prince Harry and Meghan begin tour of drought-stricken Dubbo”

The five-year-old met the royals on their tour of Dubbo this morning, along with a long line of other school children.

Despite running behind schedule, Prince Harry and Meghan took time to have a laugh and sign autographs.

In keeping with the royal baby craze, Entertainment Tonight has unearthed an old interview from Hello! magazine in which the Duchess of Sussex revealed she already has a present in store for her unborn child-and it may hint at the baby's name. Why are we excited that the royals are here again? To highlight the plight of farmers the couple had tea with a family on their farm.

As they arrived, it started to pour but that didn't stop the prince from addressing the crowd.

Harry also encouraged those suffering due to the dry weather to seek help "when you need it", referencing his struggles with mental health issues in the wake of his mother, Princess Diana's accidental death in 1997.

'You are the salt to of the earth, honest, hardworking and as tough as they come.

"She's normally in bed at 10.30am but we had to stay up for this". You have just lived through two years of drought.

Dubbo is a popular destination for Royals with six official tours making it out to the city to date.

Meghan has been estranged from her father since he bailed on the royal wedding after he was busted staging paparazzi photos at Samantha's suggestion.

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

They're off to Dubbo next, where they'll meet with the Royal Flying Doctor Service, which is a group of emergency responders and doctors that serve those living in rural, remote areas of Australia, not a new Avengers spin-off, and farmers who are dealing with long-term drought.

He said being in Dubbo "brings back memories of 2003, when I spent time jackarooing [working] on a small 16,000 hectare property" in Queensland.

They will visit Melbourne on Thursday before returning to Sydney.
