It is probably the most exciting thing to happen to Betoota Grove mother-of-four, Wendy Spock, this calendar year.

Save for perhaps the conception or unplanned birth of her first grandchild.

Prince Harry arrived in Australia this morning with his popular new wife Megan Markle – and Wendy is barely keeping it together.

Speaking exclusively to The Advocate this morning, the 29-year-old* spoke to her youngest son Paul who’d just arrived at work.

“I just had to tell everybody, I’m so excited!” she told our reporter.

“I’ve already spoken to all my girlfriends about it but that didn’t satisfy me enough so I’ve decided this morning to individually call each of my adult children to tell them that my second-favourite royal is in the country,”

“My favourite is The Queen, of course. It’s just so great! I’m driving down to Dubbo this weekend to see them in person!”

Paul, when he later spoke to our reporter, was not as excited as his mother was but claims he understands why Baby Boomers like the Royals.

However, he said he didn’t have time to articulate that because he’d just arrived at work and had a lot to catch up on.

“So Mum rings me six times this morning so naturally I think Dad’s fucking brown bread or something. Like she’s walked in on him in the shitter this morning and he’s gone and Elvis’d himself or something, you know?”

“Turns out she just wanted to get onto me about Prince Harry being here. Big whoop!”

“We’ll be a republic in the next decade or two, anyway. I can see through this PR coup. Anyway, I can’t really speak now. Cheers.”

More to come.
