Hug for Harry as five-year-old Luke steals the show

There were plenty of strong reactions to Harry and Meghan's baby news

Despite official warnings of Zika virus, the parents-to-be are still planning to visit to Fiji and Tonga, and have not altered their packed schedule while there.

Alice Hall, 25, gave it five stars, and said it earned full marks for being moist: the highest accolade for baking in the family.

They'd also been visiting Buninyong Public School and its pupils, including young Luke Vincent.

The Queensland-based couple behind the black jeans the Duchess of Sussex wore during her visit to Dubbo hope the "Meghan Effect" will boost its fortunes and allow it to employ more women.

A day after the Kensington Palace revealed that Meghan Markle is pregnant, a video is going viral featuring the former Suits actress and Prince Harry hugging a little boy.

Prince Harry is now Luke's favourite person alongside Santa Claus.

The youngster, who has Down Syndrome, couldn't resist reaching out and grabbing Harry's beard, clearly fascinated by his facial hair.

The banana bread Meghan baked for the picnic in the park event.

And the dad-to-be is "happier than he has ever been", the Daily Mail reported.

The duke and duchess discussed the drought which has been affecting the region with the Woodleys.

Throngs of locals brandishing cardboard cut-outs of the royals gathered in the town, while others wore royal fancy dress and a local bar even specially brewed a beer dubbed "Dubbo Royale". The goal of the brand is to encourage women to feel good no matter what size and shape they are.

In another video, Prince Harry is asked if he will name the toy and replies: "I'll think of something".

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.
