Adorable photo of Meghan and Harry with 2 ordinary paramedics has touching prehistory
Two thoughtful paramedics earned a chat and a personal photo with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex for their incredible act of kindness.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle spent the day on Fraser Island yesterday. They have never met Graeme Cooper and Danielle Kellam before but they knew all about them.
The Harvey Bay paramedics garnered worldwide attention when they took a detour for a gravely ill patient. En route to the hospital, she wanted to see the beach one last time.

Harry, 33, and Markle, 37, had reportedly heard about the touching story according to Mirror.
It went viral when a picture of the woman laying down on her stretcher in front of the beach was posted online. News of the touching act made its way all the way to the Kensington Palace.
Alongside the photo, Helen Donaldson wrote: "She just wished she could be at the beach again."
The couple invited Cooper and Kellam to lunch to have an intimate sit-down and chat further. The paramedics presented them with a pair of teddy bears dressed in paramedics uniforms.
Kella spoke to 7 News afterward:
"It was so incredible. They both seemed sincere."
Harry and Markle also took a picture with the paramedic team for the sake of Cooper's sister. He explained:
"I have a sister with cancer at the moment who wanted me to get a photo. So when I asked for one, they said no problems. They were just so humble and wonderful. They took an interest in everyone they spoke to."
The heartwarming action of the paramedics happened in November 2017. The Queensland Ambulance posted the photo on Facebook. Sadly, the patient died just two days later.
Cooper said that the attention he receives has no factor in his work ethic:
"If I lost my compassion for the public, that would be the day to hang my shirt up because I'd know I wouldn't have what I need to do the job."
It's great to see when people's hearts are in the right places. Also, it's great when their taste buds are set on healthy treats.
That's what happened when Meghan Markle baked a banana bread for an event last week on the tour.
The public scouted the net to find the fruit loaf recipe and whip up something themselves.

Waitrose reportedly saw a 52 percent increase for banana bread recipes. They experienced a 137 percent page increase on a spiced banana loaf recipe.
Of course, admirers of the duchess can pick up her official shared cookbook called "Together: Our Community Cookbook." Markle gave a heartfelt speech upon its launch back in September 2018.
The proceeds will go towards a good cause, namely, the Hubb Community Kitchen in Grenfell. It will help the victims and families affected by the Grenfell Fire Tower.
Meanwhile, Markle and her husband will continue their tour by traveling to Fiji today. Next weekend they are set to go to New Zealand.
