Even the flies in Dubbo wanted a brush with royalty yesterday. The royal couple shared a laugh with locals as Prince Harry helpfully swatted them away.
A representative of the Royal Flying Doctor Service, Ruth Sandow, had to interrupt her own speech because of a bunch of flies, saying: “The flies are friendly in Dubbo!” while Harry wildly waved both of his hands in front of her in a comedic efforts to keep them away. Everyone started laughing, but it was his wife Meghan, who bent over in a fit of giggles.

Some praised Prince Harry online as the “coolest royal ever”, another wrote: “I just love Prince Harry, he is a real genuine person, so down to earth”. Other people said it was a “refreshing funny side of Harry” and they had “never seen him so funny”, while others said: “Harry is just himself and we love him for it.”
This is not the first time Harry has pesky insects flying around during important moments. During his father, Prince Charles’ 70th birthday, Harry had to stop his speech to fight with a bumblebee. Meghan and Camila, couldn’t hold back their laughter while watching Harry.
