Prince Harry Visits World's Largest Sand Island In Australia

Check out the photos of the Duke and Duchess in Fiji...

While Meghan recently took some well-earned rest during the first leg of their tour in Australia, she is thought to be back to her full schedule and planning to attend all engagements.

During their royal encounter, Mr Cooper and Ms Kellam presented Harry and Meghan with two teddy bears dressed in Queensland Ambulance Service uniforms, before the humble royals posed for a photo with the pair. "He's so anxious about this trip because their schedule is jam packed with engagements, and he's paranoid that it'll be too much for Meghan and their unborn baby." Aw!

But a royal aide close to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex claims that Meghan isn't sick, but just exhausted from the traveling, her demanding schedule and of course, her pregnancy.

Though the spotlight has been squarely focused on (pregnant) Meghan Markle and Prince Harry in Australia, they aren't the only royals showing their faces this week.

Landing in Suva yesterday, Prince Harry and Meghan were treated to a traditional welcome ceremony, which included local dancing and a few sips of kava.

That includes a reception held by The President of Fiji at Borron House and an official welcome ceremony which will mirror in format that of the one attended by The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh in 1953.

The Duke blushed as a well-wisher shouted out a cheeky comment, while he was visiting Fraser Island.

The couple is scheduled to visit Tonga on Thursday before returning to Sydney on Friday night for the final days of the Invictus Games, Harry's brainchild and the focus of their tour.

As he walked up to greet veterans in a line up at Fiji's National War Memorial this morning, Harry used his teeth to remove his glove so he could shake hands skin to skin.

Meghan and Harry will have carried out about 76 engagements across their 16-day tour by the time it ends.
