The Duke and Duchess of Sussex took time out of their busy schedule on Monday to meet with two inspirational Queensland Paramedics who made headlines when a photo of them granting a woman’s last wish went viral.
Harvey Bay paramedics Graeme Cooper and Danielle Kellam not only touched the hearts of Australia when they took a palliative care patient to see her favourite beach one last time… it turns out they tugged on the heart strings of royal couple Harry and Meghan too.
At the special request of Kensington Palace, the heroic Ambulance officers were invited to personally meet with the Duke and Duchess during their short time on Fraser Island on Monday afternoon.

The special moment was captured on camera by Channel 7 and has since gone viral on social media.
