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

"You are the salt of the earth".

And before leaving another cake by a local bakery was served, ending the royals' first day in regional NSW on a sweet note. That resilience, sense of humour and commitment to the land are what make you unique.

Despite most of the area being in the middle of one of the worst droughts NSW has seen, rain is forecast for most of Wednesday.

Prince Harry has urged the people of Dubbo battling drought to seek the support they need, saying in his own darkest hours asking for help was the best thing he ever did.

"All you need to do is ask for it - your neighbour, your peer, your fellow farmer is literally right around the corner", he said, noting higher suicide rates in rural Australia.

The pregnant royal - who announced on Monday that she and Prince Harry were expecting their first baby next year - cooed over Higgins' nine-week-old daughter, Luna, who was nestled safely in her mum's arms.

The prince immediately made a beeline for Daphne, gave her a hug, held her hand and called over Meghan to say hello too.

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.

The medical service was anointed as "royal" in 1955 after Queen Elizabeth, Harry's grandmother, visited Australia.

"It´s like a marriage in a beer can", bar licensee Ryan Mackintosh told local publication the Daily Liberal.

Meghan Markle bent over laughing as a playful Prince Harry leapt into action to help the woman pestered by flies as she delivered a speech.

They will visit Melbourne on Thursday before returning to Sydney.

The couple is in the midst of a nine-day tour of Australia for the Invictus Games, an athletic competition for wounded military veterans that Harry founded.
