Prince Harry reunited with a 98-year-old royal superfan, Daphne Dunne, on Tuesday, the third time Dunne made sure to be at the front of the queue to see the prince in Australia.
Harry caught up with Dunne, a war widow, who had also greeted him at his visits in 2015 and 2019.
The two shared a hug outside the Sydney Opera House, and Harry introduced Dunne to Meghan Markle.
"I'm so happy to finally meet you. I've heard so much about you," Markle said.
Harry complimented Dunne's shoes and hair, and Markle said she had seen "very sweet" photos of Harry and Dunne's previous meetings.
They also discussed Markle's pregnancy, which Dunne said was "marvelous" news.
"Hopefully next time we see you we'll have a little one with us," Markle said.
You can watch the moment here:
Dunne told the Today Show that her love of Harry was born from his work with war veterans. Her husband, Lt. Albert Chowne, died in 1945 at the age of 25 and was posthumously awarded a Victoria Cross medal for bravery.
Dunne wore the medal on her chest during their first meeting.
Harry first met Dunne outside the Sydney Opera House in 2015 after a monthlong deployment with the Australian Army.

The pair met again in 2019 when Harry visited Australia to launch the Invictus Games, a sports event for injured service members started by Prince Harry.
Harry seemed delighted to see Dunne, then 97, in the crowd, and they both seemed unbothered by the pouring rain.
