The Mayor of Dubbo Regional Council Ben Shields has invited the local community to attend a picnic at Victoria Park to welcome the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to the region.

Everyone is invited to attend as it will be a wonderful opportunity to be part of this historic visit.

Councillor Shields said, ‘The Royal visit is a special time for Dubbo and we expect there will be a lot of people who want to be there when Their Royal Highnesses are in town.

‘The magic of the Monarchy will draw attention in a way that no one else could. I expect the presence of the Duke and Duchess will be a massive morale boost for the community.’

The Duke and Duchess will take part in Dubbo’s Picnic In The Park, which will run for three hours, from 11.30 am, with a number of activities including musical performances and food stalls.

Prince Harry will also give a speech during the picnic.

All proceeds will go to a local charity.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will also visit the Royal Flying Doctor Service, a local property to see the effects of the drought first-hand and a local school working to improve education for young Aborigines and Torres Strait Islanders.

The students will also participate in netball and touch football drills on the school oval, highlighting the importance of sport in education.
