After kicking Invictus Games in Sydney over the weekend, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry traveled to Australia’s Fraser Island on Monday morning local time.
Meghan, who recently announced her pregnancy, had a wine red and white polka dot dress in the waist from & Other Stories and flat sandals by Sarah Flint. She pulled her hair back into a ponytail.
The royal couple went out into the plane and held hands when Meghan went into a car and Harry went into another. Prince Harry embarked on a barge to take him to his first commitment of the day, while Meghan was hoping for a boat from Hervey Bay Eco Marine Tours to take her to another area on the island. Meghan is likely to return to Harry for a meeting and greeting with locals at the end of the day.
Meghan was all smiles when she came to the port of Hervey Bay and waved to a group of locals who stopped kissing her on the dock. The weekend announced to the palace that Meghan, who expects his first child in the spring, will cut back his busy schedule for a few days to rest while Harry starts on some engagement soles.
After her pregnancy message, a royal source told People Meghan had had her 12-week ultrasound and was “feeling well”.
After moving down Down Under, Meghan and Harry have kept a full calendar at a busy pace and opened the Anzac Memorial for fallen veterans, opening Invictus games, going out to Bondi Beach and even getting their “first baby gift.”
“Thank you for the welcome you have given Meghan and I the last few days,” Harry said in his speech at the Invictus Games opening ceremony. “I have been so proud to present my wife to you and we have been so happy to celebrate the personal joy of our newest addition to all of you.”
Located about 800 miles from Sydney is Fraser Island, also known as Kari, of locals, the largest sandy island in the world and has a total of 206,970 hectares of protected forests.
During his first involvement of the day, Harry met with traditional owners on the island, known as the Butchulla people and the premiere of Queensland. He then participated in a traditional welcome to Country Smoking Ceremony and presented a placement for the engagement of Kari Gary Forests to Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy (a unique network of forest-savvy initiatives, covering all 53 Commonwealth countries).
He will then travel to the beach to learn the history of the island’s logging trade as well as its use as a training base for the Australian Z Special Unit during World War II.
Thereafter he will travel to Kingfisher Bay by boat, where the visit will end with a walk along the quaint Kingfisher Bay pier.
On Tuesday, the 16th day whirlwind tour takes Harry and Meghan to Fiji.
