Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have just started the second day of activities in Dubbo, Australia. The small town, roughly 187 miles northwest from Sydney, has been affected by a bad drought this year in the New South Wales region, and as such, Meghan and Harry were "keen to show their support" for those there and in the community, Daily Mail's royal correspondent Rebecca English tweeted.

Meghan dressed casually, wearing a jacket from Serena Williams's collection, Outlander jeans, a top from Maison Kitsune, and boots from J.Crew, plus a low ponytail for the visit. It's her first time wearing a ponytail on a work engagement since joining the royal family and her second time wearing one generally. She wore her first ponytail as a royal at Prince Louis's christening this summer:
The two will start their visit by meeting with the Royal Flying Doctor Service to "learn more about the life-saving role the aviation service provides for people living in rural and regional areas," the Palace announced. From there, they will visit a local farmer's property to see how the drought has been affecting them first-hand. In the afternoon, they'll go to a picnic at Victoria Park to meet people from the community and surrounding areas, then finish their activities with a visit to a local school to meet students before flying to Melbourne for their day three itinerary.
Meghan wore two outfits yesterday for her Sydney visit: a white dress by Karen Gee and a green shirtdress by Brandon Maxwell.
