Prince Harry made one young fan's day when he high-fived him for bringing a banner which read: "Redheads RULE!" as he landed in Australia.
The prince arrived in Canberra to launch his four-week attachment with the Australian Defence Force, before leaving his post with the British Army in June.
Hundreds of people braved the wet weather and lined the streets to catch a glimpse of the royal - including 12-year-old Ethan Toscan.
According to fellow ginger Ethan, the prince told him that being a redhead "has to be the number one thing one person can ever be".
He said that I was fabulous in making the sign and it's awesome to be a redhead.
I'm over the moon - it's just wow! I got to shake his hand."

Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott has condemned the "terrorist outrage" in Tunisia which left at least 20 people dead.
"Plainly it is an attack by Islamist extremists on a fledgling democracy - a democracy which had thus far proven quite effective in resisting the kind of extremism characterised by al Qaeda," Abbott said.
He also confirmed one Australian national had been killed during the attack on the national museum in Tunis.
