The Duke and Duchess Sussex are now on a 16-day royal tour of Australia, New Zealand, Tonga and Fiji.

Meghan curtailed her activities after attending the opening ceremony for the Invictus Games on Saturday night at Sydney's Opera House.

True to form, Prince Harry - a royal of the people - is already sharing his and Meghan Markle's pregnancy with the world.

The Duke - who is now on a 16-day tour of Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, and Tonga with his wife - told the crowd: "First of all, thank you for the welcome you have given Meghan and I over the last few days".

"After a busy programme, The Duke and Duchess have chose to cut back The Duchess' schedule slightly for the next couple of days, ahead of the final week and a half of the tour", a palace aide told the publication.

SYDNEYPrince Harry was on his own Sunday morning, as wife Meghan Markle took a break from the couple's official royal engagements in Australia.

On Tuesday, the couple are due to travel by charter flight to Fiji's capital for three days of further engagements, before travelling on to Tonga and back to Australia then New Zealand.


At Sunday's Invictus events, Harry shared a laugh with one Australian athlete who appeared to ask him to sign a pair of swimming trunks - also known as "budgie smugglers" in local terminology.

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.

Harry has told his wife to slow down. "She said it was very freeing that she no longer has social media", Ms Oakes told the Daily Mail.

Despite her upcoming plans, Meghan has been "feeling fine", according to a source.

Saturday evening had been a late night for the couple as they attended the Invictus Games opening ceremony. "I just thank them", he said.

"Over the last four years the Invictus Games have become about so much more than the thousands of competitors who have taken part", he said on a stage shaped like a boomerang, following a belated traditional Aboriginal welcome ceremony that was held up by torrential rain and lightning.

The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, attended the Royal Academy of Arts for the opening of the Oceania exhibition, bringing together about 200 works from public collections.
