Prince Harry's Biggest Fan Daphne Dunne Has Died

Sydney woman Daphne Dunne who is known around the world as being Prince Harry’s biggest fan, has died aged 99.

Dunn received a card last week for her birthday from the Duke of Sussex and Meghan Markle.

Ms Dunne’s daughter revealed last week that Daphne had been suffering from a serious illness.

She was known for kissing and cuddling the Duke during his visits to Sydney.

In 2018, she met Prince Harry’s wife Meghan Markle outside the Sydney Opera House but was last seen on Friday on the Today Show, where the hosts read out a message from Harry to her.

Dear Daphne, my wife and I send our warmest wishes to you on the occasion of your 99th birthday on Friday,' the card read.

'We hope you have a wonderful celebration surrounded by family and friends and that you've managed to escape hospital.  

'Congratulations on reaching this important and impressive milestone before your centenary year next year. 

'Happy Birthday Daphne. 

'Best wishes, Harry and Meghan, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.' 

Our thoughts are with her family.
