Prince Harry highlights daily threat of climate change on visit to Fiji

Prince Harry highlights daily threat of climate change on visit to Fiji

She visited the Suva Market on Wednesday with the intention of meeting some of the female vendors who have been involved in the UN Women's project Markets for Change.

The Duchess of Sussex revealed the clearest look yet at her blossoming baby bump as she donned a handsome blue dress in Fiji.

On Tuesday, the couple attended a state dinner at the Grand Pacific Hotel and Harry said Fiji and Britain shared a love of rugby and a sense of humour. They explained that "crowd management issues" were the reason why her detail asked her to leave.

The Ducess spent just six minutes at the market and only managed to meet a handful of people before she was ushered along.

And on their first major royal tour of Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and Tonga, we've had plenty of opportunities to pore over footage of the couple's sweet interactions. Trust the Duchess to pull off a cape gown and make it look equal parts royal and cool.

The Duchess and her husband, Prince Harry, are on a multi-country tour of the region.

Harry was without Meghan for his first engagement of the day in which he spoke with veterans, including a number who had served with the British Armed Forces.

On Tuesday, President Donald Trump jumped on Saudi Arabia for the handling of Khashoggi without assigning blame specifically. USA lawmakers have increased their pressure on the Trump administration, accusing the crown prince of ordering the killing.

Bot countries have had recent outbreaks of Zika virus, with the Australian Department of Health recommending pregnant women delay non-essential travel to places affected by the disease.

She said she was only able to attend university thanks to scholarships, financial aid programs and paid work on campus, but that it was, without question, worth the effort.

Announcing two grants to encourage female empowerment in Pacific academia, she said higher education for her was "incredible, impactful and pivotal", despite the challenge of paying for it.

Although many were understandably disappointed the Duchess couldn't be around for longer, Kensington Palace told The Sun, "Meghan met with everyone she was scheduled to".

They will remain in Fiji carrying out engagements until Thursday, when they'll fly Tonga for more engagements, before returning to Sydney to close Harry's Invictus Games.

Whatever the actual reason for the short visit, it's safe to say that wherever the Duke and Duchess have been in this tour, demand had always surpassed supply.
