Meghan Markle to miss scheduled engagements on royal couple's Qld visit

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.

According to insiders, the prince is "happier than ever" after it was last week revealed the couple, who married in May, would become parents next year.

Markle's very first tour outfit-a fitted white dress from Australian brand Karen Gee, which showed off her newly announced pregnancy perfectly-saw the brand's site crash nearly as soon as the label responsible was named.

Meghan stayed away from the games on Sunday, apparently needing to rest, after Harry told her to take it easy.

A video posted online showed a well-wisher calling out: "Congratulations, I hope it's a girl!" to which he replied "So do I!" "There was no phone call to announce her pregnancy or anything like that".

But the Duke of Sussex carried out the engagements they had planned alone.

"We have to make sure she is well-paced and not overdoing it", the source added.

Mourinho has been linked with the job at the Bernabeu as a replacement for Julen Lopetegui , who has struggled since taking over in the summer.

But the Duchess stepped out with Harry yesterday for a walkabout on Fraser Island, before the couple set off for Fiji.

As you travel around Fraser Island you can understand why Meghan's team may have advised her to sit this one out.

The royal couple later reunited for an afternoon stroll along the island's Kingfisher Bay jetty, delighting locals.

Prince Harry ventured into the thick rainforest, which covers over 200,000 acres.

The indigenous K'gari who live on the island performed a traditional dance and held a smoking ceremony to welcome Harry into a forest of trees that are over 1,000 years old.

However, she bounced back on Monday to join the duke on Queensland's Fraser Island.
