Prince Harry Visits World's Largest Sand Island In Australia

Prince Harry Visits World's Largest Sand Island In Australia

The couple had arrived in Fiji's capital of Suva earlier that day.

The royals have been touring Australia for the Invictus Games, a multi-sport event founded by Harry for wounded ex-service personnel, which is now under way in Sydney.

The Duchess of Sussex played tribute to the host country by sporting the Fiji blue ensemble, according to Entertainment Tonight.

Students and Staff of the University of the South Pacific Laucala Campus will also have a chance to meet the Duke and Duchess of Sussex at 10am as Prince Harry will speak in his capacity as Commonwealth Youth Ambassador and Meghan Markle will also say a few words.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have left Hervey Bay as they make their way to Fiji.

In another nod to Her Majesty, Meghan wore a pair of pearl and diamond earrings gifted by The Queen herself, which Megs first wore during her first official engagement with her grandmum-in-law back in June.

The Duchess wore a long-sleeved dress by Australian label Zimmerman- despite tropical heat and in contrast to her outfits in Australia - sparking immediate speculation that she was covering herself up to protect her unborn baby from the threat of Zika-carrying mosquitoes.

Prince Harry spent Monday meeting with local elders and national park rangers to learn about the Island's natural beauty, rich history, biodiversity and cultural significance and with a visit to the pristine waters of Lake McKenzie.

The Queen and Prince Philip arrive in Fiji in 1953.

But Harry wasn't having it, simply telling them: "I'm in the middle of a conversation, and I'm not going to leave this".

Meghan will today embark on her first solo duties of the tour, visiting the British High Commission for morning tea and the Suva Market.

The tour will also take them to Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand and return to Sydney for the closing ceremony of the Invictus Games for disabled military veterans.
