Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were in Dubbo today. As I’m sure you’ve heard by now, there’s been two years of drought in Dubbo and it rained on the day that the Sussexes visited.

By now we’ve seen that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have developed their own style. From the very beginning, at their “public debut” a year ago in Toronto at the Invictus Games, when they arrived hand in hand, they’ve always been the most tactile royals. And they didn’t dial it down, not after they announced their engagement two months later, not as they began to work together and rep the family on official engagements, not at the wedding when they sat with their hands linked on his thigh in St George’s Chapel, in the presence of the Queen, and definitely not now on their first major tour abroad. Full Story
