Luke's school principal Anne van Dartel said she had told the students that they were not to reach out to the royals.

She and husband Prince Harry are now in Dubbo as part of the Royal Visit there.

There's a special bond between Prince Harry and a 98-year-old war widow who gave him a warm hug Tuesday when they met - again- in Sydney, Australia. "Hopefully next time we see you, we'll have a little one with us".

The pair are believed to have met at the 2010 Super Bowl and Williams was among the star-studded congregation at the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's wedding in May.

The welcome included one young fan, Luke Vincent, who broke the ropeline to embrace the prince, playfully playing with his beard.

In a slightly ironic turn of events as Prince Harry addressed the crowd on how farmers can suffer from mental health due to the droughts, the skies opened up complete with pouring rain and hail.

To highlight the plight of farmers the couple had tea with a family on their farm.

The much-needed rain began to fall about 10 minutes before their arrival and only got worse as they viewed stalls at the picnic in Victoria Park.

"As your royal highnesses are aware, our region has been hit by a bad drought", Mayor Ben Shields told the drenched crowd draped with waterproof ponchos and holding umbrellas, who erupted in laughter.

The Daily Mail's Rebecca English said Meghan baked the banana bread last night in the kitchen at Admiralty House.

He spoke of high suicide rates and the need for a strong community to help others who are doing it tough.

Shortly after touching down in Sydney, Kensington Palace released the news that Markle is pregnant.

The Royal Flying Doctors Service was anointed as "royal" in 1955 when Queen Elizabeth II, Harry's grandmother, came to Australia. They will be in Melbourne on Thursday.
