Meghan’s baby bump on show at Fiji state dinner

Meghan Duchess of Sussex and Prince Harry

The Duke of Sussex was here to lay a wreath and to show both his personal appreciation of Fiji's ongoing connection with the British Armed Forces and to give thanks on behalf of his grandmother, The Queen.

The pair had a whirlwind day in Fraser Island on Monday, with pregnant Meghan stepping out of a couple of engagements.

The couple was scheduled to attend a reception and state dinner Tuesday evening hosted by Fijian President Jioji Konrote.

In addition to Harry's baby shoutout to Meghan on Saturday, the 37-year-old Duchess revealed that she and her husband have also been thinking about future baby names. Her baby isn't even here yet, but the mom-to-be has already been keeping her little one safe while on her first royal tour with Prince Harry, 34.

Meghan wore a dress by Australian label Zimmerman, a Stephen Jones hat, earrings which were a gift from the Queen and a bracelet given to her by the Prince of Wales. Following a busy week of engagements, the castle reported late on Saturday that the Duchess of Sussex would cut down her schedule.

Hundreds of well-wishers lined the streets from the airport to greet the Royal couple, waving flags and cheering.

The Duke and Duchess came out to the island as part of a celebration dedicating the island's rain forests to the Queen's Commonwealth Canopy, a royal initiative aimed at creating an worldwide network of forest conservation programs.

At 11am this morning the Duke will travel to Colo i Suva Forest Park and the Duchess to the British High Commissioner's Residence before taking a tour of the Suva Market at 11.30am.

But Meghan isn't the only one excited about parenthood.
