On day 2 of their visit to Australia, the Duke & Duchess of Sussex visited the city of Dubbo. It was a heavy rainy day but they did all their engagements with a big smile on their face.
Firstly, Meghan & Harry arrived at the city regional Airport and met a lot of well-wishers after landing in the morning. A lot of children came to have the chance to talk to the couple and even hug them.
Then, they walked to the Royal Flying Doctor Service near the airport of Dubbo. Harry and Meghan met around a hundred of patients, staff and RDFS volunteers inside the service’s airport hangar.
For their second engagement, the Duke & Duchess went to a local farm at Mountain View in New South Wales. The NSW drought co-ordinator and former National Rural Women of the Year showed them how to feed stock to see the effects of drought on local farmers. They also had a chat with the Woodley family whose struggling with the drought effects.
In the afternoon, the couple met residents at a community picnic BBQ in Victoria Park and enjoyed activites even if the weather was not in the mood to shine. Meghan was holding Harry’s umbrella as he was giving a touching speech about mental health, depression and the through drought the city has been struggling with for years.
The Duke & Duchess of Sussex have received a warmed welcome from the students of Dubbo’s Senior College during their last engagement of the day. On her side, Meghan met girls students of the Girls Academy,which supports individuals from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders backgrounds, to discuss school programs and she was very impressed with their work. Before heading back “home”, they watched students playing touch footballs and netball drills.
