Rain has hit the picnic before the royals have arrived. Everyone seems to have ponchos though.

Channel 10 talking about Meghan's Aussie brand jeans - they are made in Cambodia by women who have been victims of sexual abuse.

A rep is saying Meghan's wearing them will have a profound effect on the lives of these women - though more secure employment I'm assuming.

There are so many great layers to this lovely young woman. No wonder Harry is dazzled by her.

And after spending a very warm day in high heels, busy, pregnant, hairstyle and clothing changes, all the events - to hit the kitchen and bake something to take to her hosts.

Pretty impressive.

And I'll join you for that Dman.

Enjoying this tour. Great photos from airport. Love them both with the people especially the little boy

Smiling picturing Meghan making banana bread last night at Admiralty house for today. Lovely touch on her part. And go siderite the busy day she had yesterday, first day of her first tour and pregnant.


I like she chose to wear the jeans. Any label high profile royals wear is going to get the grand huge publicity. And to wear a label which benefits such an important cause, that boost the grand gets is even more important. It isn't simply about boosting a design label but providing income to women who need it.

Everyone still waiting for them to get to the picnic - only minutes away.

I'm waiting for the feeding the cows photos!

This is great - at the picnic now, and there is a sheep/cattle dog display.

Go doggies!

Brollies up - sudden burst of rain.

Security guys wearing Driazabone coats.s

Nice touch - Meghan smelling the flowers she's given.

OhTarlita! Why couldn't they shelve that for another day.

Saw Channel 7 promoting their coverage of Melbourne tomorrow - wasn't in my schedule earlier, I thought. So hopefully another good day tomorrow.

The Welcome to Country ceremony is on now with the indigenous locals.

Umbrellas still up, but rain doesn't seem too bad. Lots of wind now though.

Rain pelting down at Victoria Park, probably frustrating photographers. Harry and Meghan aren't moving, though under umbrellas, neither are the crowds. The commentators praising Meghan's professionalism with this her first tour, and how they both engage with the crowds.

The Mayor has been saying that hotels and motels in and near Dubbo have been booked out, so that's good for the town.

A local group of aborigines performed a brief dance. Harry is standing under an umbrella, the mayor giving a speech. The mayor is speaking about previous Royal visits, including his pride at those visits 'from our Royal family'. Cheers, as Harry speaks. Meghan stands beside him, holding his umbrella over them, nodding and smiling. He speaks about country Australia, 'salt of the earth' 'backbone of the country'.

Spoke too soon - torrential rain now.

Harry and Meghan cuddled up together under the same umbrella

TV saying the 1954 Royal visit bought rain to Dubbo too.

Harry soaked - up on stage to big cheers, about to speak.

Meghan feeding the cattle -

At the farm -

Big cheers for Harry, Meghan holding his umbrella during his speech.

(So much rain it looks like they will be heading into a flood!)

What a shame the heavy rain couldn't hold off for an hour or two. The royal couple and everyone else found the flies are quite friendly too.

That's a least something Tarlita - flies would have flown off.

Spontanteous joke from Harry at the end of his speech - "and the rain was a gift!"

TV reporters remarking on Meghan holding the umbrella during Harry's speech instead of an underling doing it.

It certainly was a lovely look as the heavens spilled out over everyone. Thunder and lightening included.

He continues with the problems he and Meghan have encountered in talks this morning, social isolation, pleads for them not to silently suffer but to ask for help. (Mental Health.) Cheers. The crowd listen intently. Harry speaks about how inspired he has been today. 'Thank you Dubbo for inviting us.' Cheers!

The rain stopped when Harry's speech stopped, and the couple now able to meet the crowds without umbrellas in the way.

Masses of people.

Off to a school after this - footy and basketball with the kids.

Sounds lovely. Ch 7 just interviewed little Luke Vincent. He thought Harry's beard was like Santa Claus's.

Thank you Sun Lion and Curryong for your commentary.

No problem Tarlita.

Here's the first photo out of Meghan holding Harry's brolly during the speech -

https://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/newpix/2...9743799246.jpg

I hope the media put out photos of the couple standing together before this, together under the same umbrella when it was bucketing down.

And also the footage of Harry putting one of the working dogs through it's paces.

Video of Harry's speech. Meghan holds the umbrella for him.

I have to say, the Aussie media is spoiling us with the live coverage and posting SO MUCH on Twitter. I'm going to be so pissed when they come back to UK.

The umbrellas went up as soon as the rain started. But they were still walking around saying hi to people. Harry was going around so fast, and he didn't use an umbrella. I was afraid he was just going to keep going in the rain. Thank goodness it didn't look like he got too wet before an umbrella caught up with him.

No worries, as we say here. Does anyone know though, why Harry is wearing a black ring in his right hand?

Watching a performance. Looks like the rain just gave these two an excuse to stay closer. They are sharing an umbrella. The host is asking for trousers and pant suit from Meghan. I can just imagine how the fashion thread will lit up with that.
