Pregnant Meghan takes break from Australia royal tour

Pregnant Meghan takes break from Australia royal tour

While we don't know the baby's gender, Prince Harry let his preference slip during a candid moment with a well-wisher on the street.

Today, the two were both due out to watch the cycling event at the Invictus Games, which just began yesterday.

The 34-year-old royal shared his excitement at becoming a dad when a wellwisher yelled "Congratulations, I hope it's a girl" during a cycle race in Sydney yesterday.

The duke will undertake a number of engagements on the world's biggest sand island on day seven of the royal couple's Australian tour.

The couple, who are expecting a child next spring, have 76 events on their schedule during their 16-day tour of Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and Tonga.

The cat predicted that the baby would be a girl after the feline chose to eat food from a pink bowl instead of a blue one in the light-hearted segment.

Meghan Markle is feeling the exhaustion of her pregnancy and is opting out of her appearances for part of the rest of the Australian royal tour with hubby Prince Harry.

Gordon Hayward will not play vs. Knicks Saturday night

A source told MailOnline that it wasn't that Meghan - who's now pregnant with the couple's first child together - was feeling sick, rather they're trying to "pace" her given how many engagements she has coming up.

The pair were due to meet with Indigenous elders and learn about the island's Aboriginal history, but now the Duke of Sussex do the greetings on his own. "We have to make sure she is well paced and not overdoing it", the source added.

Still, Meghan hasn't disappointed yet on her tour.

However, she looked rested and rejuvenated as she re-joined the planned schedule - a reception at The Pavilion restaurant in Sydney's central parkland The Domain - after skipping the cycling presentation.

It's been reported by multiple royal correspondents on Twitter that Meghan is not unwell, just a bit exhausted and needs rest after the Opening Ceremony of the Invictus Games overran on Saturday night.

The former Suits star is still expected to travel to Fraser Island - which is the world's largest sand island and can be hard terrain for pregnant women - but it is thought she may not take part in as many engagements as originally planned.

The former actress will accompany Prince Harry to Fraser Island, the world's largest sand island, but she may alter her schedule while there given the hard terrain.
