Meghan Markle is taking it easy. The Duchess, who is on her first royal tour with Prince Harry, has “cut back her schedule slightly” to get some rest. She was noticeably absent from the Invictus Games’ cycling and sailing competitions on Sunday, but will rejoin her Prince for the rest of the week-and-a-half tour. They will be traveling to Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand. Kensington Palace said the pregnant royal will pace herself the rest of the trip.
Prince Harry is ecstatic to be a dad! He gushed about his newest (future) addition while speaking onstage at the opening ceremony of the 2018 Invictus Games at the Sydney Opera House. Duchess Meghan beamed at her hubby from the front row, while cradling her tiny baby bump. The royal baby news was announced hours after the newlyweds landed at their first stop—Australia—on their first joint royal tour. Harry, who served in the British Army for 10 years, founded the Invictus Games—an international Paralympic-style sports competition for wounded and ill military personnel and vets—in 2014.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have made it to Australia, the first spot listed on their royal tour. The couple will also visit Fiji, the Kingdom of Tonga and New Zealand from now through the end of the month. According to Kensington Palace, the trip will focus on “youth leadership, and projects being undertaken by young people to address the social, economic, and environmental challenges of the region.” The Invictus Games will also be a “major focus.” Prince Harry founded the Invictus Games in 2014 and they will be held this year on October 20-28. It is a special event for the newlyweds, as it was at the Toronto games last year when they made their first public appearance as a couple.
