Recently, Prince Harry flew solo while attending a number of events at this year's Invictus Games in Sydney, after the pregnant Duchess made a decision to cut back on some of the tour's many engagements out of caution for her health, according to multiple reports.

"But the duchess was very keen to re-join the duke at the last engagement of the day to greet the people of the island".

But she surprised royal fans with a stylish appearance at the walkabout, and the 37-year-old will be returning to her normal tour schedule as the couple hit the tarmac and head to Fiji on October 23.

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

The duke and duchess are expected to catch some of the final events when they return to the harbour city on Friday.

On Tuesday night, Megs stepped out in her most stunning look yet at a State Dinner in Fiji, wearing a caped Safiyaa floor-length azure blue gown.

The ceremony, known as the Veirqaraqaravi Vakavanua, exactly mirrors one attended by the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh in 1953, and involves a number of traditional elements of Fijian culture, including the presentation of the Tabua, a Kava ceremony and a dance known as the Meke.

School children in uniform and people of all ages lined the streets and waved both British Union Jack and Fijian flags as Prince Harry and Meghan's motorcade drove past. "I told her a story about my father, which she loved, and I wished them every happiness in the world with their baby", Joyce told reporters.

The couple's arrival in Fiji follows their ecstatic reception in Australia, where the couple were "overjoyed" at sharing the news of their royal baby with the country.

And the Duke paid tribute to his growing family during his speech at the Openin Ceremony of the Invictus Games on Saturday.

Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan's royal tour in Australia is taking an exotic turn as they go island hopping.

"So do I", Harry replied, as seen in a viral fan video posted on Instagram.
