But the pair also stopped for a heart-warming cuddle with five-year-old Luke Vincent, who was wearing his Buninyong Public School uniform and a blue-and-white cap as he nuzzled the duchess and affectionately rubbed the duke´s thinning ginger hair and stroked his beard.
He then handed a bouquet of flowers to the Duchess before embracing her as well.
The royal couple visited the NSW regional city for a morale-lifting visit.
Dubbo's mayor, Ben Shields, told a newspaper earlier this year: "People keep asking me, 'Why Dubbo?' And I keep saying, 'Of course they'd come to Dubbo.' You don't go to Australia without visiting Dubbo!"
"It's just what Harry needs".
"And we also genuinely couldn't think of a better place to announce the upcoming baby, whether it's a boy or a girl, so thank you very, very much".

Following the incident, Reid shared a photo of herself back at work on Tuesday on the set of the film the "Fifth Borough". The 42-year-old explained to TMZ that she was upset when she found out she didn't have a window seat like she thought.
"He offered to stay for two weeks so we could have some more of the rain".
In a speech at Victoria Park later in the day, Prince Harry directly tackled the issue of the drought and praised the community for their resilience.
The loved-up royal couple took their time greeting each of the schoolchildren who had gathered to meet them, including Millie Sutclife, 10, who told Meghan she loved her and was rewarded with a hug from both the Duke and Duchess.
Mrs Carroll said Meghan admitted to being "a bit tired", but hoped to complete all 76 engagements during their 16-day tour. "I said I felt sorry for her having to do all these meet-and-greets while 4 months pregnant!"
The trip is their only global tour since the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were married in May 2018, apart from a two-day visit to Ireland.
They will visit Melbourne on Thursday before returning to Sydney.
