Daphne’s wishes have come true as she got to meet the Duke and Duchess of Sussex at the Sydney Opera House.

The 98-year-old has previously met Prince Harry but was anxiously awaiting the Duchess.

Upon spotting Daphne, Prince Harry walked over to her greeting her with a hug.

“Good news this morning,” Harry exclaimed as she beamed over the baby news.

Calling Meghan over, she left the overside of the walkabout to meet the infamous lady.

“So nice to meet you,” said Meghan.

Commenting that she has “been so happy” over being pregnant.

The couple chatted with her some more with Harry saying he “noticed your shoes, they are very cool.”

Asking: “Have you died your hair a shade of pink?”

As they departed Daphne praised the couple, “It’s so wonderful the two of you.”

“I need a kiss from both of you.”
