I hope it's a girl: Prince Harry

Meghan managed to meet with some of the female vendors at the market who have been involved in the UN Women's project "Markets for Change".

The Duchess of Sussex revealed the clearest look yet at her blossoming baby bump as she donned a lovely blue dress in Fiji.

As for Prince Harry, according to AP he was not scheduled to join Meghan Markle at the Suva marketplace and instead was off "unveiling a plaque at a forest site". They explained that "crowd management issues" were the reason why her detail asked her to leave.

Meghan also wore a very snazzy Cartier tennis bracelet (worth around 18,000 quid), which people assumed was given to her by Harry.

Kensington Palace announced that Meghan was expecting on the eve of the couple's first tour outside the United Kingdom and Ireland.

But she was escorted through in about six minutes due to what Kensington Palace reportedly said was a security risk due to excessive crowds.

The Royal couple were presented with tropical leis as part of the visit.


Land and sea rangers and dancers who met Prince Harry told of a mutual respect, acknowledging the significance of his visit to their land and new understanding of traditional Butchulla practices.

But since the Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced they are expecting their first baby, their closeness seems to have skyrocketed.

She said: "When she stands alone she tends to cradle her bump with two hands, which is an even more tender gesture of both pride and affection".

Harry and Meghan observed a royal salute, and the duke was then invited to inspect the guard of honour before the couple left for their next engagement, a meeting with Mr Konrote. "I am also fully aware of the challenges of being able to afford this level of schooling for many people around the world, myself included", she explained.

Addressing students, she spoke of the vital importance of education for girls in developing countries.

From there, they'll return to Sydney for the end of the Invictus Games before zipping off to New Zealand for the final leg of their tour.
