The timing could not have been better for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex with the news of Meghan’s pregnancy announced at the start of their first major overseas tour. The official announcement came after growing speculation, but a few days after the wedding of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank. Harry and Meghan having been careful not to upstage Eugenie’s big day at Windsor Castle.

A warm welcome at Sydney Opera House.

The sixteen day tour of Australia, Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand sees Harry and Meghan’s step onto the international stage in a major way. The anticipation bringing a reminder of the 1983 first Australian tour by Prince Charles and Princess Diana. Appropriately, during the first day Meghan paid tribute to Harry’s mother, with a dress from Australian brand Karen Gee, accessorized with butterfly earrings and a bracelet belonging to Princess Diana.
