The mum-to-be looked incredible for the formal dinner, hosted by the President of Fiji at the Grand Pacific Hotel where the royal couple are staying.

During her first Commonwealth tour as the new monarch in 1953, the Queen and her husband Prince Philip also travelled to Fiji for a similar event.

The pair were seen arriving in the Pacific nation as Meghan returned back to full royal duties after taking it easy due to her pregnancy.

About 15,000 people, many holding union flags and pictures of the royal couple, packed into Albert Park in downtown Suva for the ceremony led by elders in grass skirts.

At the special request of Kensington Palace, the heroic Ambulance officers were invited to personally meet with the Duke and Duchess during their short time on Fraser Island on Monday afternoon.

But Harry wasn't having it, simply telling them: "I'm in the middle of a conversation, and I'm not going to leave this".

Rebecca English, Royal Correspondent for the Daily Mail, shared updates from the ceremony on Twitter and it wasn't long before people started asking why Meghan was flouting the rules. There are new reports that suggest the Duchess of Sussex is feeling rather sick because of her pregnancy and that's why she has made a decision to scale back on some of her royal engagements and public appearances in Australia.

Meghan will also take on solo engagements in Fiji, attending a morning tea at the British High Commissioner's Residence which will highlight the achievements of women in the country, before travelling to Suva Market to meet the female vendors. They stopped in Fiji to refuel en route to Australia and managed to squeeze in a brief engagement.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have arrived in Fiji for a three-day visit.

But Meghan isn't the only one excited about parenthood. The handsome shade is in fact thought to be a nod to the nation, with one guest noting the gown was clearly 'Fijian Blue, - a tribute to her hosts.
