Benita Woodley, one of the recipients, said of Meghan: “She said if you go to someone’s house you always bring something, so she did.
“She said she was worried about the bananas, that she’d put too many bananas in it. But the Duke said there’s never too many bananas.”

I guessed that maybe it is one of the rings that works like a Fitbit.

Being a huge fan of hot tea and banana bread I'd be thrilled if someone came to visit and brought me some!

The Duchess of Sussex is “running on adrenaline” as she undertakes her gruelling first major tour while pregnant, she has said, saying she is feeling “pretty well so far”.

They look very relaxed to me all day. They can't stop holding hands either.

Whats on tonight? Any public dinner event?

Agree with Harry, can never have too many bananas

I have something in common with Meghan. My mom always said you never gone empty handed and banana bread is usually my go to. Nothing better then banana bread with tea or hot chocolate for me.

Love the photos of them sharing an umbrella. Sweet moments

Wonderful speech by Harry rain and all.

Rolling live crosses to Dubbo during the 3.00pm news here jacqui24 and the couple are still in Dubbo and have been at the school.

The kids have hit going home time right at this minute and are being "interviewed" at the school gates about their experiences of Harry and Meghan.

Rain has reached Sydney now, so the couple won't escape the wet when they leave.


I didn't see if Harry actually threw it -

More shots of the banana bread - cut, and almost gone. And of Meghan handing over the tin of tea.

Love it - "Royal Blend" tea!

One of the embargoed engagements is for today. Don't know why this would be embargoed though?

Duchess Meghan at an engagement that was embargoed until today - meeting pupils from the Girls Academy at @DubboCollege. The school has been working to improve the education outcomes of young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders. #RoyalTour

Maybe embargoed because of security concerns?

Do you think they will fly from Dubbo to Melbourne tonight, have a relaxing night there so they are refreshed for a full day tomorrow? In terms of travel distances this would make more sense than flying back to Sydney and then flying to Melbourne tomorrow morning..?

No AnnaNotherThing - Axeyman said they are at Admiralty House until the overnight trip on Fraser Island next week.

And there is now a helicopter that's hovering again - just coming up to 5.00pm here, so I think they've just arrived back from the airport.

Harry putting a doggie through it's paces -

And that banana bread is going to end up with it's own facebook account -

Thank you for that.
Well the media should be happy. Yesterday the highlight was Daphne Dunne and todays highlight was the little Luke Vincent. Media like little good news stories like these.
Sure was a big crowd in Dubbo and not a swooping magpie in sight. It is magpie season here.
The Royal Blend Tea and banana bread from The Duchess was a nice down to earth touch. Country people always used to arrive with a plate of food when invited. Not sure how many country ladies still carry on this tradition. It is just considered as being polite. Especially as shops are so far away.

I have been fortunate enough to attend many Melbourne Cup parties where the food was a veritable 5 star banquet, when we all brought food. Fantastic living out in the bush most of the time. Country ladies especially are very organised.

Just another bit of trivia. 5 year old Luke was with his School Principle not his mum. Bet his mum is surprised and super proud now she has a little star.

It looks like the Sussex duo a going to be the perfect Commonwealth Ambassadors for all ages. I know people get twitchy when Meghan mixed race is mentioned, but as we saw today, that can be the ultimate icebreaker.

Those girls absolutely adore her and she is so into raising up strong, educated young women, she is living proof of what you can achieve. I loved when one of the girls said she wanted to be a Social worker, Megan was so proud when she said that was what her Mom was and extolled the rewarding career.

Lots of good photos from the tour. How is it that these are just as sickeningly sweet under separate umbrellas as they are under the same umbrella?

Speaking of the mixed race issue, this came from Emily Andrews after the visit:

Schoolgirl Kieasha Ross, 17, said: “Us being Aboriginal girls and her being of a different race and being accepted into the Royal Family shows us anyone can be accepted.
“It’s great that someone who’s bi-racial and American can do this.
“It makes her a role model.”
