Meghan Markle, Prince Harry arrive in Dubbo for his real tour

adminOctober 17, 2018




Prince Harry is already demonstrating how wonderful his father will be, after winning a small fan on day two of the tour with Meghan Markle.

The royal couple, who announced on Monday that they are expecting their first child, arrived at the Dubbo City Regional Airport in Australia for the second stop of their 16-day tour of Australia, Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand.

After walking hand in hand on the asphalt, Meghan and Harry met a group of local school children who had met on the way, including a small boy who was especially enthralled with Harry.

Once the prince, 34, greeted him, the five-year-old boy, identified as Luke Vincent of the Buninyong Public School, jumped into his arms to receive a giant hug before playfully stroking his face and pulling his beard. .

While Harry was laughing at the meeting, Meghan, 37, approached quickly to meet the young animated fan and was also greeted with a warm hug.

But the young man did not get tired of Harry and ran to the prince and gave him a hug, a kiss and gently stroked his head.

While interacting with the rest of the students and waving each of their hands, Harry and Meghan often bent down to talk to them.

On the second day, Meghan opted for a more casual look, wearing a white Maison Kitsune blouse with a gray blazer from the Serena Williams collection, jeans from the Australian brand Outland and black boots with her hair in a low ponytail.

Meanwhile, Harry opted for a blue button-down shirt with black pants for the occasion.

After disembarking the plane, they were greeted by the mayor of Dubbo, the regional councilor, Ben Shields, and a welcome party.

As they moved through the line of people, Meghan and Harry greeted them with a sincere smile and a handshake.

The duo then attended the dedication to the names and the launch of a new plane in the Royal Flying Doctor Service fleet as part of 90-year celebrations of providing medical care to people living in remote regions of the country.

"It's a great privilege for us to have you here today," a spokeswoman for the RFDS said in her initial comments before the flies began to swarm her face in the middle of the speech.

"Flies are very friendly here in Dubbo," he joked. "We hope you both enjoy your visit to the base."

After his speech, the couple was introduced to a group of doctors, nurses and volunteers from the Base, who stopped at a moment to speak with a girl in the arms of a father presumably. After their interaction, Meghan gave the girl two flowers.

Then they were shown several techniques, materials and emergency supplies related to the health of the service while a crowd of people watched from the sides.

During the explanation, Harry and Meghan listened intently and asked questions before greeting the audience.

The royal couple finished the ceremony by cutting a ribbon and a cake together.

While in the rural town of Dubbo, located about five hours outside of Sydney, Meghan and Harry will also meet with a local family of farmers and sheep and attend a community picnic in Victoria Park.

Even before the memorable meeting on Wednesday with little Luke, Prince Harry has previously shown that it is his father's material.

Last year, during the sitting volleyball Finals of the Invictus Games in Toronto, he entertained a young woman sitting next to him grimacing and offering popcorn.

Finally, they attended an afternoon reception at Admiralty House, where Harry thanked Australia for the "incredibly warm welcome" they had received and the "opportunity to meet Australians from all walks of life."

"We also really could not think of a better place to announce the next baby," Harry said, looking at Meghan. Appearing a little nervous, Harry added, "if it's a boy or a girl."
