Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are currently touring Australia in their first overseas trip as a married couple, and while greeting fans in the Land Down Under, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex encountered Harry’s “favorite Aussie.”
According to news.com.au, Harry previously met 98-year-old widow Daphne Dunne in 2015 and 2017. Both times, the pair engaged in lengthy conversation, causing Dunne to be deemed Harry’s “favorite Aussie.” On October 16th, Dunne caught up with Harry again—and got to meet the Duchess of Sussex for the first time.
According to ET, Markle was also excited to meet her husband’s fan.
Dunne congratulated the couple on their big royal baby news, even giving them a card. Markle then said she hoped Dunne would get to meet their baby someday.
News.com.au reports that Harry first met Dunne when he spotted her wearing a Victoria Cross that belonged to her late husband, who died while fighting in World War II. Two years later, a photo of the pair chatting in the rain captured the public’s hearts.
We can’t wait to see Harry and Dunne’s next reunion—royal baby in tow!
