Meghan and Harry witnessed ‘biblical moment’ when rain fell on royal tour

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's rare 'biblical moment' when they were on a royal tour was captured by a lucky royal photographer.

Freelance royal and news photographer Zak Hussein, whose dad Anwar captured several iconic pictures of Princess Diana in the 1980s, has released the shots taken on the Sussexes' royal tour of Australia in 2018 along with a touching story.

The royals were visiting an area that had suffered two years of intense weather, but something happened after Meghan and Harry arrived.

The photographs show the pair grinning as the rain began to fall shortly after their arrival in a drought-affected small town in the countryside.

Zak told People Magazine that Dubbo in New South Wales, Australia, had been experiencing two years of dangerously dry weather prior to the royals' arrival, and added: "You had this prince and this duchess who landed in this small town, and suddenly it was like they brought on this rain, in this Biblical moment"

They were then pictured sheltering under an umbrella while smiling sweetly and gazing into each other's eyes.

She then held up the brolly for him while he gave a speech at a nearby podium.

Another heartwarming scene had also been captured moments earlier when a boy with down's syndrome ran through the crowd to hug the royals just after they arrived.

Luke Vincent, five, had dashed from under a rope to offer the special greeting to Harry, with Harry crouching down to return the gesture while Meghan, clutching a bouqet, gleefully looks on.

Anne van Dartel, principal at Buninyong Public School where Luke attends, had previously told People that they had gone into "panic mode" after seeing him run out as he was "touching a member of the royal family".

The headteacher explained that the boy had an obsession with Father Christmas, and was delighted to see Harry's beard, adding: "So what you and I can't get away with, my beautiful friend can."

Meghan and Harry moved to the US with their son Archie, now two, in early 2020. The couple also welcomed daughter Lilibet Diana in June last year, with the family living in California.

The Sussexes stepped down as senior members of the royal family.
