Contrary to what Natasha Bedingfield sang on her iconic song “Unwritten,” it appears Meghan Markle does not want Prince Harry to “feel the rain on [his] skin.” So, during a recent royal engagement in Australia, she offered up her umbrella to keep her husband dry.
While attending a picnic at Victoria Park in Dubbo, Australia, on Wednesday (October 17), heavy rains began to fall before Prince Harry was set to give a speech. In order to keep him from getting soaked, Markle held an umbrella above his head while he spoke. According to People, the Mayor of Dubbo offered to let Prince Harry borrow his umbrella when the rain started, to which the prince replied, “It’s all right, I’ve got my wife.”
And you thought all of those impromptu back rubs were cute! Check out the pics for yourself, below:
The rainy day is actually good news for Dubbo, which has been plagued with an intense drought over the past few years. This has increased the suicide rate among young men in the area, People reports, which Prince Harry addressed in his speech.
“It must be hard not to lose hope when you endure so many dry months end on end knowing that you are powerless to do anything about it,” he said, per People, pointing out the rise in suicides in the farming region. “You are one huge community and with that comes an unparalleled level of internal support and understanding.”
He continued, “You need to know a part of being strong and tough is having the courage to ask for help when you need it. You must not silently suffer.”
Drawing on his own experience, the prince added, “You are all in this together and, if I may say, personally, we are all in this together. Because asking for help was one of the best decisions that I ever made. You will be continually amazed at how life changes for the better.”
