However, the Duchess does apparently plan to join Prince Harry for the other scheduled engagements later on today.

A royal aide said: "She's feeling fine, but resting".

Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex, will travel to Fraser Island but locals won't get the chance to see her after the palace confirmed she won't take part in any official engagements.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are now on a 16-day royal tour that includes stops in Australia, Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand.

Prince Harry arrived in uniform to the event, which saw the Royal and his new wife lay a wreath which was accompanied by a handwritten note, dedicated to Australia's fallen soldiers.

More worrying for the Red Devils is the fact that they have a pretty poor record when it comes to games at Stamford Bridge . I think it's fair to say that the football world had quite the mixed reaction to the game ...

Kensington Palace said the couple made a decision to cut back Meghan's schedule before their visit to Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand.

Prince Harry officially opened the Invictus Games at the Opera House on Saturday night after a wild electrical storm delayed proceedings by more than an hour. It wasn't long before the Duchess was back though, and by lunchtime, she emerged looking well-rested to attend a lunch with Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison at The Pavilion Restaurant, and later in the afternoon to watch the sailing. Of course, this over-affection could have to do with the fact that Meghan and Harry just confirmed on October 15 that she's pregnant with their first child. We have to make sure she is well-paced and not overdoing it. "The duke will continue with the engagements on Fraser Island as planned".

Prince Harry was left to hand out medals by himself this morning after Meghan didn't show up to an event in Sydney.

During the reception, the Duke and Duchess met with children from the Kookaburra Kids Foundation which supports families affected by mental illness, the Endeavour Clontarf Academy which helps disadvantaged indigenous men, and cadets from the Royal Australian Air Force.

In addition to Harry's baby shoutout to Meghan on Saturday, just days after announcing their pregnancy, the 37-year-old duchess revealed that she and her husband had also been thinking about future baby names. And he put them on, over his jeans.
