While visiting family in Dubbo this past week I had the fantastic opportunity to see the Duke and Duchess of Sussex (Prince Harry and Meghan Markle) in person. It was indeed a royal encounter. 👑
Harry delivered a very moving speech in which he discussed the drought that has affected many farmers in rural communities and shone a spotlight on mental health. As someone who is affected by mental illness and also living in a rural area, I was touched by this and hope it may be able to encourage others to seek help if they need it. 💖
There was a large crowd in Dubbo, and even though it began to rain heavy, it didn’t deter people from catching a glimpse of Harry and Meghan. I dodged raincoats and umbrellas and was able to see them and take the following photographs. 📷
A bonus was that a band I like, Thirsty Merc were playing. I have wanted to see them for some time, but it never worked out that I got see them in concert. This time I did, for freee. 😄 The photos of the band turned out a lot better because it was not raining.
