Meghan Markle not sick on royal tour

Meghan Markle not sick on royal tour

The Duchess - who was known as Meghan Markle prior to marrying her husband at St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle in May - was forced to withdraw from some of her planned engagements due to tiredness earlier this week.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are now on a 16-day royal tour that includes stops in Australia, Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand.

But she surprised royal fans with a stylish appearance at the walkabout, and the 37-year-old will be returning to her normal tour schedule as the couple hit the tarmac and head to Fiji on October 23.

The Duke and Duchess will both call on President Major General Jioji Konusi Konrote at Borron House, before moving to an official welcome ceremony in the city centre's Albert Park where tens of thousands of people are expected to attend.

It was reported last week that Meghan, 37, recently had a 12-week ultrasound.

The Kava ceremony is held to welcome guests to the country and from their expressions, it's clear that Harry and Meghan were bowled over by the reception they received.

The Duke and Duchess travelled on a private charter flight to the capital of Suva, where they carried out various duties, including Harry checking out the Guard of Honour, which saw a large group of Fijian army soldiers and members of the navy greet the prince at Nausori Airport, as Markle watched on.

They will remain in Fiji carrying out engagements until Thursday, when they'll fly Tonga for more engagements, before returning to Sydney to close Harry's Invictus Games.

The palace has only issued a statement from Meghan's mother, Doria Ragland, since the pregnancy was announced.
