Prince Harry flies solo as pregnant Meghan misses engagements to rest up

Prince Harry flies solo as pregnant Meghan misses engagements to rest up

On the 21st of October, Sunday, the Kensington Palace officials released a statement claiming, "the Duke and the Duchess have chose to cut back", on their schedule.

Cape Town - It's been just a week since Kensington Palace confirmed that Meghan (37), the Duchess of Sussex, is pregnant and the baby is expected in autumn 2019 (in the British spring). Have you seen Prince Harry and Meghan while they've been in Australia? It's been an exhausting week, and although the Duchess hasn't had any morning sickness, she has been very exhausted.

She is believed to be around four months pregnant and has had a hectic start to the 16-day tour.

Prince Harry enjoyed some flirty banter with one cheeky Aussie local on Fraser Island.

Meghan was pictured keeping one protective hand on her stomach as she held hands with her husband at the jetty on Sunday afternoon.

The itinerary also includes a visit to Lake McKenzie before meeting national park rangers to learn about the iconic island's unique animal and plant life, along with its history of logging.

The Duke of Sussex tested his skills on the children's driving course at the Invictus Sydney Jaguar Land Rover Driving Challenge following her Australia Tour. They're also set to visit Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand in the coming days.

In the statement confirming Meghan's pregnancy, her mother Doria Ragland was mentioned, but Thomas' name was kept out of the message after he was said to have embarrassed his daughter and 34-year-old Harry after being paid to stage paparazzi photographs before their wedding.

A source told Sky News: "We have to try to pace her".

'We want to make sure she gets enough rest.

The 37-year-old, who is expecting her first child, is now on her first official tour of Australia with her husband Prince Harry, but was notably absent at a cycling event as part of the Invictus Games in Sydney on Sunday morning (21Oct18). "A new baby is a blessing and I look forward to seeing a little Meghan or a little Harry".

Meghan pulled out of an arranged meeting with Invictus Games competitors to rest after Saturday's ceremony overran by almost two hours, leaving the Duke to present the medals alone on Sunday morning.

As the Duke quickly departed the event for his next engagement, a fan was spotted yelling out "I hope it's a girl!", with the expectant father himself responding "So do I!"
