Harry and Meghan gift rain to drought-stricken Aussie outback

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle

Against royal tradition, Prince Harry snapped a photo of Meghan Markle with a young doppelgänger, making a high-profile photojournalist out of him!

Luke, who has Down's Syndrome, gave Meghan a cuddle too, giving the pregnant duchess a attractive bunch of flowers to take on her way.

Their first engagement of the day involved meeting the Royal Flying Doctors Service, a healthcare provider that offers aviation services to rural parts of the country.

During their royal visit, Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan Markle landed in Dubbo, Australia on Wednesday (October 17), where they got to meet many fans and spectators in the area.

Harry, and his pregnant wife Meghan, were met by local politicians and dignitaries, but it was five-year-old Luke Vincent who stole the show.

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.

Van Dartel explained in an interview with 7 News that Luke loved beards, which was why he was drawn to Prince Harry's face.

The Duchess of Sussex is a long-time friend of Williams, and her choice of outerwear was a clear tribute to the tennis superstar.

"But I know that life has not been easy".

Meghan struck up conversation with a fellow new mother during her visit to the Woodley family at their Mountain View farm. "But the Duke said there's never too many bananas".

It's all right, I've got my wife.

The video, taken by Seven News, could be a telling snapshot of how Prince Harry will interact with his new baby.

The former Meghan Markle brought banana bread that she baked in Sydney on Tuesday as a gift to a farming family outside Dubbo who were struggling to feed their cattle and sheep through two years of below-average rain.

Meghan and Harry arrived in Melbourne after their aeroplane touched down following a one-and-a-half hour flight from Sydney. I said congratulations on the baby and they thanked me. "We've had families who can't put food on the table, who can't afford everyday basics, who can't afford water to fill their tanks", she added.
