Harry and Meghan bring rain to drought-stricken Outback town

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle

TL;DR On the first stop of their Royal Tour Meghan Markle and Harry receive an adorable baby gift from Australian officials.

The royal couple were visiting Dubbo in New South Wales just days after announcing that they're expecting a child of their own - and they were greeted by more than 30,000 fans, according to The Guardian.

The royal couple met with flying doctors and drought-stricken farmers.

They spent 15 minutes hugging and chatting to the children, with one boy telling Prince Harry he wanted to be a helicopter pilot when he grows up.

"He got a hug from Meghan and then Harry bent down to speak to him and Luke didn't give him any choice!" recalled the school's principal, Anne Van Dartel.

"I have a lifelong interest in the story of food - where it comes from, why we embrace it and how it brings us together: The universal connection to community through the breaking of bread", Meghan wrote in the cookbook's foreword.

Many praised the couple for exuding love and closeness.

Luke, who has Down syndrome, caught everyone's attention by throwing himself into Meghan and Harry's arms.

Other engagements in Dubbo included a (very wet!) picnic in the park where they watched a dance performance and met members of the public.

"I really hope my father gets to be a part of that but I'm so excited for them and I think the baby will be a handsome addition to the royals and the Markle's".

The royals began a 16-day Pacific tour on Monday, landing in Sydney and nearly immediately announcing the duchess´ pregnancy.

Emily Carroll, 33, whose 13-month-old daughter Ruby is the first member of the family's sixth generation, said the duchess had been anxious that she had put too many bananas in the cake.

Ruby's mum Carol told reporters: "Meghan told me that she's feeling pretty good so far, which is great, and that she's running on adrenaline".

After touring Australia, the pair plan to visit Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand.

"The brand alignment is just flawless - we couldn't ask for a better person to represent our brand than Meghan", Bartle said.
