Pregnant Meghan Markle is Cutting Back Royal Tour Schedule

Pregnant Meghan Markle is Cutting Back Royal Tour Schedule

Prince Harry greeted an Aboriginal community on the stunning World Heritage-listed Fraser Island on Monday as his pregnant wife Meghan took a break from official duties during the royal couple's Australian tour. The Duchess of Sussex sat front and center and watched her husband practice.

The pregnant duchess also admitted to gathered fans that she was "running on adrenaline" and feeling "a bit tired", but still planning to go ahead with all 76 engagements of the 16-day tour. Click the bio link to shop our royal collection and be the ROYAL that YOU are.

The 37-year-old was spotted with the Duke later in the day though and looked rejuvenated as they stepped out to attend an event with Australian Prime Minister, Scott Morrison.

The Duke and Duchess are now enjoying a royal tour of Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, and Tonga.

For many, the folders added to speculation Meghan Markle is expecting a baby, fuelling the fire already stoked by the large blue coat she wore at Princess Eugenie's wedding last week.

On Saturday night, Harry officially opened the Games for wounded soldiers at a ceremony on the forecourt of the Sydney Opera House.

Meghan Markle is four months into her pregnancy.

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.

An American man accused of groping a woman on a flight has excused his actions by claiming Donald Trump said it was OK. She felt the hand grab her arm, then "slowly and ‘attentively grope her right side", according to the complaint.


The father-to-be also gushed about the couple's exciting baby news, which was announced hours after he and wife Meghan Markle landed in Australia earlier in the week.

The Duke of Sussex donned a pair of tight swimming trunks - known to Australians as budgie smugglers - over his jeans on the first day of competition of the Invictus Games in Sydney.

Mr Alcott, who is a triple Paralympic gold medallist in wheelchair tennis and wheelchair basketball, said: "He [Harry] said: "Shall I put them on?'".

"However, the Queen can step on and say we'll give the child HRH status".

It was rumoured that the royal couple has an awkward run-in with Coleman in September, while the royals were on a secret trip to Amsterdam for the launch of an exclusive members club, Vanity Fair reported.

And her commitment to gender equality has seen her work with the United Nations - receiving a standing ovation in 2015 for her speech to mark International Women's Day.

The couple will next travel to Fraser Island, off the coast of Queensland, with a visit to Lake McKenzie planned on Monday.
