Harry, Meghan Bring Rain to Drought Affected Area in Australia

SYDNEY – Torrential rain marked on Wednesday the visit of Britain’s Prince Harry and his wife Meghan to Dubbo, an Australian city situated in a vast agriculture and livestock farming area which has been witnessing a severe drought this year.

“The rain is a gift!” Harry said in a speech during a visit to the city, situated nearly 400 kilometers (186 miles) northeast of Sydney, where local Aboriginal residents attributed the rain to the couple’s visit.

Speaking to an audience of around 30,000 people, the Prince praised the people of the Australian countryside for being untiring workers and the backbone of the country, as his wife stood holding an umbrella to protect them from rain.

Harry, son of Prince Charles and the late Lady Diana, added that in the 70’s his grandmother Queen Elizabeth II and her husband Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, visited Dubbo and he himself had experienced the life of a jackaroo – a young man working on a sheep or cattle station – in outback Australia as a child.

On the second day of their Australia visit, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex met Luke Vincent, a five-year-old who received them with flowers at the Dubbo airport and gave a hug to Meghan before playing with Harry’s hair and beard.

TV footage showed the Prince, who is expecting his first child in spring 2019, grinning and playing with young Luke.

Later in the morning, the couple visited a Dubbo farm to witness the damage caused by the drought, and presented the family with banana bread which Meghan had baked the night before.

At the farm, the New South Wales state drought coordinator and former National Rural Woman of the Year, Pip Job, showed the Duke and Duchess how to feed the animals.

The Royal couple is on an Oceania tour until the end of October, which also includes stops in Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand.
