Afterwards, the couple were whisked away for their next engagement, a meeting with Fiji's President, Jioji Konrote. Before their October 15 confirmation, the newlywed was keeping her bump under wraps with flowing dresses, oversized coats and even a stack of folders. The palace said in a statement, "The Duke and Duchess have made a decision to cut back The Duchess's schedule slightly".

Upon their arrival at the traditional welcome ceremony yesterday, the Duke of Sussex Prince Harry says he and the Dutchess of Sussex Meghan Markle hope to meet as many Fijians as possible over the next two days.

Days later, Meghan arrived on Australia's Fraser Island wearing an & Other Stories printed maxidress almost identical to her sister-in-law's, save for its cap sleeves.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are now on their royal tour of Australia, New Zealand, Tonga and, most recently, Fiji, where they found a touching way to pay homage to Queen Elizabeth II and her husband Prince Philip, whether they meant to or not.

As he walked up to greet veterans in a line up at Fiji's National War Memorial this morning, Harry used his teeth to remove his glove so he could shake hands skin to skin. They stopped in Fiji to refuel en route to Australia and managed to squeeze in a brief engagement.

They will close their overseas tour by visiting New Zealand before returning to London.
