Five-year-old Luke Vincent stole the show in Dubbo on Wednesday as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex arrived in the remote New South Wales Australian town.

Little Luke gave Prince Harry a hug, before then turning his attention to his beard. Some reports say Luke's desire to stroke the the royal's facial hair was related to his love of Santa Claus.

The Prince didn't seem to mind, and encouraged him to give his wife Meghan a cuddle as well. Luke then gave Prince Harry another hug before the couple moved on.

The Duke and Duchess were in Dubbo as part of their Royal Tour downunder.

Harry and Meghan's marriage also inspired Dubbo locals to brew a beer especially for the visit.

The pair's first royal tour will also take them to Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand over the next 14 days.
