Meghan’s baby bump on show at Fiji state dinner

Doug Peters/EMPICS Entertainment The Duke and Duchess of Sussex arrive in Suva, Fiji, where they took part in a ceremony known as the Veirqaraqaravi Vakavanua, which embodies Fijian cultural identity and heritage.

Meghan was pictured in the cape dress and wearing dazzling diamonds as she joined Harry at the Grand Pacific Hotel to attend the state dinner hosted by the Fijian President.

It was in 1953 that Elizabeth made her first of five visits to Fiji.

Even though Meghan made quite an effort to keep up with Prince Harry and their demanding schedule during her first few days in Australia, she has finally chose to scale back on things.

Australia's Governor-General Sir Peter Cosgrove and his wife Lynne presented Harry and Meghan with a toy kangaroo and a little pair of Ugg boots for their baby, which is due in the spring.

Prince Harry is first and foremost a doting husband.

Jordan says it won't renew peace treaty land deal with Israel
The deal was signed in November 1994 by Abdullah's father, King Hussein, and then-Israeli prime minister Yitzhak Rabin. After the king's announcement on Sunday, Jordanians took to social media, calling it a " historic and wise decision".


Meghan has resumed normal duties on the couple's overseas tour after cutting back slightly on engagements in the last two days in order to rest. The Suitsalum, who is now four months pregnant, wore her attractive brunette locks in a classic messy bun and a chic pair of oversized shades for the occasion.

Meghan's earrings were a gift from the Queen and the bracelet a gift from Prince Philip.

Landing in Suva yesterday, Prince Harry and Meghan were treated to a traditional welcome ceremony, which included local dancing and a few sips of kava.

Speaking about the subject being close to Harry's heart, the by Invictus ambassador explained: "I think they (Harry and Meghan) provide this beacon of hope and light for so many".

The couple is taking precautions by only Harry visiting Fiji's Solo-i-Suva forest for the unveiling of the Queen's Commonwealth Canopy and the same for their planned trip to Suva's War Memorial, The Sun reported.
