'You are the salt to of the earth, honest, hardworking and as tough as they come.

At the same reception, Meghan was seen talking to Australian singer Missy Higgins who was cradling her baby in her arms.

Samantha, who is on holiday in Ireland after a visit to the United Kingdom where she tried and failed to arrange a meeting with Meghan, said: "I would hope that - for the sake of the baby, the family, the world and my dad - that leaving him out of the statement was not intentional".

Waiting patiently at the end of a line of excited children who had gathered at the airport to meet the couple, Luke Vincent from Buninyong Public school greeted Harry with a huge bear hug before reaching out his hand to pull on his beard.

It is one of the highest honors that can be bestowed by the British monarch, and Dunne told Harry it had been awarded to her first husband after he died in Papua New Guinea during World War II.

In addition to the sentimental jewels (which she wore with her first outfit of the day as well), Markle donned a button-front army green Brandon Maxwell midi dress with a pleated skirt and a pair of crème-colored pumps.

Like Meghan, Princess Diana's first royal tour was in Australia, 35 years ago (as was baby Prince William's). Meghan reacted, saying, "That's so cute, it's our first baby gift!"

But she also warned she'd not be happy if their father Thomas, 74, was left out of the fold.

Harry said his visit to Dubbo invoked memories of a trip he made to Australia in 2003, when he spent "some time" on a 16,000 hectare property in Roma, Queensland.

Meanwhile, the Prince of Wales has revealed he toasted news of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's baby "several times".

On Friday the prince will scale the Sydney Harbour Bridge and hoist a flag to open the Invictus Games, a sports championship for wounded military personnel.

Charles spoke about becoming a grandfather again during a visit to a whisky distillery in Aberdeenshire, where he sampled a 30-year-old malt produced in his honour.

"I met prince Harry and he said I really like your tiara, I think Meghan needs one like it", she said.
