Royal tour: Meghan takes morning off as Harry goes solo in Sydney

Royal tour: Meghan takes morning off as Harry goes solo in Sydney

On Saturday morning, Harry had to attend an Invictus Games road race at the Royal Botanic Gardens in Sydney solo after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex had a late night at the opening ceremony Friday.

But in the afternoon, Meghan did make it to an Invictus reception hosted by Prime Minister Scott Morrison at the city's central parkland, The Domain.

⛵ Today Sydney Harbour provided a spectacular backdrop for the #InvictusGames debut of sailing!

While Markle, 37, has been by her husband's side for important events, she has chosen to rest during some engagements with Kensington Palace saying she will not take part in official engagements on Fraser Island, Monday.

Prince Harry accompanied by his lovely wife Megan went to the worldwide tour.

A spokesman said: "After a busy programme, The Duke and Duchess have made a decision to cut back The Duchess's schedule slightly for the next couple of days, ahead of the final week-and-a-half of the tour".

As she stepped on Australian soil for the first time, Meghan sparked a storm of pregnancy speculation after she arrived clutching a pair of purple folders in front of her stomach. "The Duke will continue with the engagements on Fraser Island", a reference to an island off the eastern coast of Australia, near Brisbane. Luckily, Meghan had just the thing thanks to pal Williams's eponymous fashion line.

Naturally, the tennis star was delighted about the duchess' shout-out to her.

"She talked a lot about growing up in terms of this generation and the pressures of social media because there is so much criticism we experience", she said.

It's understood the Duchess has not been suffering morning sickness but has been exhausted after a gruelling schedule of back-to-back official engagements.

The Duke of Sussex, Prince Harry, has officially opened the extended Anzac Memorial at Hyde Park in central Sydney. "But in the event she had IVF and opted for a single sperm injection, there is a 1-in-100 chance the embryo split into two and they would have identical twins", he adds.

The Duke and Duchess are now enjoying a royal tour of Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, and Tonga. In a video captured and shared by a crowd member while Harry met members of the public in Sydney, he admitted that he hopes they have a baby girl!
