A familiar face caught Prince Harry’s attention while he was in Sydney, Australia, promoting the Invictus Games. The prince was shaking hands with audience members when he noticed Daphne Dunne, 97, who had been waiting outside in the pouring rain to meet him.
She had hoped he would remember her after they had met two years before. He did so right away.
When Daphne first met the prince, he was stationed at the Sydney Opera House while working for the Australian Defense Force. Daphne caught his eye at the time because she was decked out in military honors, including the Victoria Cross.
Daphne served in the Australian Women’s Army, and it turns out that her first husband was the recipient of the rare Victoria Cross. He died at the age of 24 during World War II and was posthumously awarded the Victoria Cross. When he died, they had only been married for a year.
“He remembered me. And gave me another kiss on the other side,” the happy veteran said.
He gave Daphne a warm embrace, kissed her on the cheek, and told her how happy he was to see her, and they chatted for a few moments during the sweet reunion. He was worth the long wait in the pouring rain, she said.
The Invictus Games has been held in various countries since 2014 and attracts competitors from all over the world. In 2018, the games will be held in Sydney, and we’re sure Daphne will be there to cheer everyone on and possibly steal another kiss from Harry.
Their reunion is a sweet one because they had genuine affection for one another. At the end of age, when Jesus returns for the saint, the reunion would be sweeter. In Revelation 21:4, it says that “He will wipe every tear from their eyes. Death shall be no more; nor sorrow, nor wail of woe, nor pain; for the first things have passed away.” What a sweet moment that would be for all who believe.
