Duchess Meghan cutting back on grueling schedule: Kensington Palace

THE pregnant Duchess of Sussex is scaling back some of her engagements for the next couple of days as she and Prince Harry head into the second week of their 16-day tour.

The royal couple will travel on Monday to Queensland's Fraser Island on the north-east coast of Australia before leaving for Tonga and Fiji later in the week.

Prince Harry has revealed he hopes to have a baby girl with his wife the Duchess of Sussex. Harry and Meghan later looked loved-up as they watched the final of the Invictus Games' sailing competition from a luxury boat in the afternoon.

"The Invictus Games celebrates the healing power of sport and the fighting spirit of our wounded, injured or ill servicemen and women", she said in a statement.

Saturday started off with lovely weather as the Duke and Duchess unveiled the new ANZAC memorial before heading to Cockatoo Island for the Jaguar Land Rover Driving Challenge.

Have you seen Prince Harry and Meghan while they've been in Australia?

Kensington Palace announced that Meghan will not attend some of the scheduled events in the programme over the coming days.

AS were also critical of Real, reflecting on the woeful start that they made to the game, with their headline reading: "impotent". Real conceded two early goals against Levante, with Jose Luis Morales scoring before Roger Marti converted from the penalty spot.


The Duke and Duchess of Sussex want their first child to have a "relatively normal life" according to a source close to the couple.

The Duke of Sussex, who founded the games, will officially open them at a ceremony in Sydney tonight. The Prince has a few engagements he needs to attend, but he's likely to carry them out without his wife, who's reportedly scaling back her engagements due to her pregnancy.

Harry is reported to have told participants at the games that his wife was not unwell but was feeling exhausted.

The Invictus Games - an worldwide sporting event for wounded and recovering veterans and active servicepeople - will end with a closing ceremony on October 27. "Meghan told me that pregnancy was like having jet lag".

Earlier last week she also surprised fans by trying her hand at AFL.

The Duchess of Sussex has made a decision to cut back on some parts of her first major royal tour after announcing earlier in the week that she's expecting her first child.

While the royally-private pair will never share a picture of their little one's room, there is one piece of furniture we can bet won't be making an appearance at the palace.
