She also designed a "Royal Duchess hoodie" for her clothing line, and also wrote Meghan a sweet note when she announced her involvement with a cookbook to benefit the victims of the Grenfell Tower fire.

Of course, many people who met the couple were eager to congratulate them on their baby news, and ask Meghan how she is feeling being pregnant while on a gruelling 16-day tour. Prior to marrying Prince Harry, she ran a lifestyle website, The Tig, that featured recipes.

Luke Vincent, who has Down Syndrome and adores Santa Claus, threw his arms around Meghan when she knelt down to greet him and tugged at Harry's beard and patted him on the head when the prince hugged the boy.

He presented the Duchess with a bouquet and went back to giving all his attention to Harry.

Five-year-old Lyra Rose, of Dubbo South Public School, said: "It's the first time I have met a princess and I will remember it forever".

They visited a family farm hit by the drought and were told of its impact and helped hand-feed some of the stock. "Honest, hard-working, and as tough as they come", the prince told the Dubbo community gathered in a park as heavy rain fell.

Harry was offered his own umbrella by the town's mayor before the speech, but replied he didn't need one, joking: "It's alright, I've got my wife!"

School captain Grace Gower said they felt privileged they chose their school to visit, and were also grateful they brought the rain.
