We celebrate Meghan Markle’s iconic pregnancy style and glamorous pictures from Prince Harry and Duchess of Sussex’s Royal Tour

THE tour to Australia was a huge success – but that was never in any doubt.
The main reason for it being such a hit has been how wonderful Meghan has been.
Getty – Contributor Meghan’s impeccable fashion and manner during the Royal Tour of Australia has had everyone talking[/caption]
Harry is already very popular Down Under. I have been with him to Australia a couple of times and he has always drawn huge crowds.
But to travel there with his TV-star wife and arrive on the day they announced she was expecting their first child gave it all the perfect ingredients for a fantastic tour.And she has clearly won the hearts of the Australian public too.
This week has reminded me so much of Diana and Charles’ tour in 1983 to Australia and New Zealand.
There was coverage of their trip in the newspapers every day, just like this one.

AP:Associated Press The Duchess was charmed by four-year-old Findlay Blue whilst visiting the zoo[/caption]
It is clear Harry and Meghan are very much in love. It was the same when Charles and Diana went to Australia and it was also their first large overseas tour.
Charles and Diana used to look at each other just like Harry and Meghan do now — in a very adoring way.
On one occasion, Charles put his hand on Diana’s and the way they looked at each other, you knew that it was a magical time. I have seen that here with Harry and Meghan.
Meghan has had a brilliant tour and done really well. She has worn some great clothes, even though one day she left the label on!

She’s been smiling all the way through. Royal tours are not easy and you have to put your best face on.
I know they get help but to do it for 16 days without a break is tough.
She has done tremendously well. At one stage, Meghan felt a little unwell with the pregnancy and took a break, which was sensible.I have been smitten with Meghan.
Every job I have done with her she has been absolutely brilliant. I can’t speak highly enough of her.
It is a tough gig becoming a member of the Royal Family and there are a lot of things to take on — the primary one is duty. And when Meghan takes on patronages of her own, I think she will really shine and do a wonderful job.

DAYS 1, 2 & 3

AFTER arriving in Sydney on Monday, October 15, and announcing their pregnancy hours later, the first day of the official tour began on Tuesday.
Having hugged fans at the Opera House, Meg received her first baby gift, a toy kangaroo, from Governor General Sir Peter Cosgrove.
The following day Meghan met a farming family in drought-hit Dubbo, west of Sydney – then on Day 3 it was on to Melbourne.

'She's chic, strong and stylish with a bit of sass'

By Tracey Lea Saver, Fashion Director, Fabulous Magazine

WOW! Meghan’s style icon status has reached new heights.
The Duchess of Sussex can do no wrong with her slick American look.
Her Tour-drobe is a lesson to us all in how to put together a classic working wardrobe, but with a sexy spin.
She has stuck to a minimal colour palette of black, beige, navy, cobalt blue and white and has chosen a number of amazing Australian, Kiwi, American and British designers that are all also available and well known in the UK.
Her wardrobe can easily be mixed, matched and re-spun, which makes it as hard working as she is.
Meghan definitely knows what suits her and with help of her stylist and best friend, Canadian Jessica Mulroney, who is travelling with her in an unofficial capacity she hasn’t put a Tabitha Simmons-shod foot wrong.
The white column dress by Theia that she wore to the official welcome reception in Tonga is just so simple and chic with the small split and embellished shoulders.
Bucks royal trends and does own thing
And the cape-back blue Safiyaa dress in Fiji was the perfect choice to give us the first proper glimpse of Meghan’s bump. Even better, it was in a shade called Fiji blue.
Watching her maternity wardrobe develop as that bump visibly grew throughout the tour was a thrill.
And on Friday night — Day 11 of the tour, when she might have been expected to be flagging fashion-wise — she still managed to pull out an absolute show-stopper.
For an event to present conservation awards, she wore a dress by Oscar de la Renta which featured birds all the way from the base to the bodice. Perfect.
What I love about Meghan is that she bucks the royal trends and totally does her own thing.
She is a modern woman who has entered into the Royal Family and given it her own special bit of sass.
Her dress code is still in keeping with the royals but her look is unique and she isn’t prepared to compromise that. I also love that she endorses sustainable and ethical brands like Outland denim and Veja trainers.
Go Meghan — you are not only strong and stylish but well on your way to becoming a fashion icon. Princess Diana would have been very proud.

DAYS 4, 5 & 6

MEGHAN tells pupils at a Sydney school that her first job was to take out the rubbish. Earlier, she and Harry visited the city’s Bondi Beach to meet members of mental health surfing charity OneWave.
The next day, Meghan was by Harry’s side as he officially opened the Invictus Games, followed by a reception with Prime Minister Scott Morrison.
They later laid a wreath at the city’s Anzac memorial to honour Australia’s heroes of the First World War.
The trip finally took its toll on day six when, after chatting to children at the Olympic Park, Meghan pulled out of hosting other events due to exhaustion.

‘Sitting in ‘vibe circle’, their smiles didn’t slip’
By Ingrid Seward
Editor-in-chief of Majesty Magazine
WHEN the Duke and Duchess of Sussex arrived in Australia to announce Meghan was expecting a baby, they were on to a winner.

Australians have always loved Prince Harry and now they wanted to love Meghan too.
She was not going to let them down despite the fatigue that comes with jet lag and her pregnancy.
She wanted to give them her best and be the best.
If that meant getting up at 4.30am Australia time to do yoga to “refresh her mind” she did it.

No one was going to stop this strong American woman who wowed crowds with her panache.
All she wanted in return was to be able to hold Harry’s hand for reassurance, which she did.
So much so the media named it the tour of PDAs (public displays of affection).
When The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge made their first joint tour in April 2014, they had young Prince George to deflect some of the attention, but it was equally exhausting.

But Meghan was never going to let fatigue get her down and only once in an overcrowded market in Fiji did she falter as the crowd control burst and she had to be hurried back to her car.
Otherwise she behaved like the actress she is and her big smile never wavered.
In the drought-stricken town of Dubbo, 240miles west of Sydney, it poured with much-needed rain on their visit.Meghan held an umbrella over her husband’s head when he spoke — he had given his to a lady in the crowd.
The couple hugged children, talked to old ladies, and all the time promoted youth leadership, mental health, conservation and, of course, the Invictus Games.
Paul Edwards – The Sun She wore a chic Theia gown for the reception in Tonga[/caption]
There was also the oddest royal engagement in history when the couple sat in a semi-circle in the sand of Sydney’s Bondi Beach wearing garlands of flowers and talking about mental health issues with surfers.
This “anti bad-vibe circle” was to promote positive thinking and even in their jet-lagged state Meghan and Harry never let their smiles slip.
In Tonga they had an audience with the king and queen and a state banquet. Crowds lined every route — once for ten miles.
Although Meghan gave two speeches, the first on women’s empowerment at the University of The South Pacific in Fiji and another at the closing ceremony of the Invictus Games in Sydney, she never stole Harry’s thunder. They were a couple from start to finish.

It was a truly different royal tour — maybe more Hollywood than Highgrove, but this is their way and everybody loved them.

DAYS 7, 8, 9 & 10

ON a trip to Fraser Island in Queensland, Meg wowed admirers in a £167 see-through, thigh-high split maxi dress on the jetty of Kingfisher Bay.
The next day she was blooming in blue, wearing a floor-length number to a lavish state reception in Fiji’s capital Suva.
She later left fans disappointed on a solo outing to a market after being whisked away by security. Next up, the Duke and Duchess flew to Tonga, with Meg forgetting to cut the label off her £400 dress.

As they left the venue, Meghan was spotted clutching a toy wombat that she had been given for her unborn baby.
She was also given a cuddly numbat – a small marsupial from Western Australia.

Meghan Markle has rare fashion blunder after leaving label hanging off designer dress as she and Prince Harry land in Tonga

MEGHAN Markle had a rare fashion blunder when a label was spotted hanging out of her designer dress as she arrived in Tonga today.
The Duchess wowed in green in Fiji and stunned in red after a mid-air outfit change before meeting royalty in the Pacific island nation this morning.
Whoops… a clothes label was spotted hanging out of Meghan’s stunning dress
She looked amazing in her Self Portrait dress, blue stilettos and black clutch bag – but eagle eyed fans noticed a stray tag hanging from the hem.
The Duke and Duchess took a 90-minute flight to Tonga, on day ten of their South Pacific tour, and she made sure her wardrobe matched the colour of the national flag.
The couple landed at Fua’amotu Airport in the country’s capital and were welcomed by Princess Angelika Latufuipeka and dancers in grass skirts.
Meghan, who was forced to cut duties short after a security scare yesterday, looked refreshed after a night along with Harry on a private luxury island.

Airport staff met them holding a sign saying “Welcome Harry and Meghan”, and waving Union Jacks.
They were then escorted off to Consular House for a private audience with King Tupou VI and Queen Nanasipau’u.
They will then attend an official reception and dinner, featuring traditional entertainment.

The royal pair first appeared at Fiji’s Nadi Airport this morning, where they unveiled a statue of SAS hero Sgt Talaiasi Labalaba.
The super-solder died in battle after holding off 250 rebels on his own.
Meghan looked classy in a green £1,315 Jason Wu dress, which showed off her growing baby bump, and tall black heels.

Harry looked dapper in a grey suit and wore military medals as he honoured Sgt Talaiasi, who was killed in the Battle of Mirbat in 1972.
He was stationed in Oman with eight SAS soldiers on a secret assignment, codenamed Operation Jaguar.
When their hideout was ambushed, he sprinted – under enemy fire – to a heavy artillery gun which usually requires three men to operate.
Despite grave bullet wounds and being soaked in blood, he single-handedly held off 250 fighters for six hours – long enough for reinforcements to arrive.

Yesterday, Meghan was whisked out of a Fijian street market amid a ‘security scare’.

Meghan Markle stuns in black dress as she and Prince Harry are greeted by adoring fans at opening of Anzac war memorial

PRINCE Harry and Meghan Markle this morning arrived in Sydney to unveil a war memorial 84 years in the making.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex stepped out of their Royal motor to crowds of cheering well-wishers waving camera phones as they began their part in a moving ceremony.

Harry, 34, was dressed in full military regalia while Meghan wore an elegant dark dress for the event at Sydney’s Hyde Park.
The Anzac Memorial commemorating the sacrifices of First World War soldiers from Australia and New Zealand was initially designed in the 1930s.
But the Great Depression meant the vision of artist Bruce Dellit was shelved.
It features a four-tier cascading waterfall on the Liverpool Street side of the monument.

Meghan was wearing a stunning black dress by New Zealand designer Emilia Wickstead and matching hat designed by Philip Treacy.
They were met by Prime Minister Scott Morrison alongside Premier of New South Wales Gladys Berejiklian and David Elliott, the minister for veterans affairs, on an overcast Sydney morning.

There were also crowds along Liverpool Street, while other people — and a cardboard cutout of Harry and Meghan — watched on from balconies as the royals arrived.
Twins Krystal and Sienna Dawson presented the royal couple with a medallion and a painting during their visit to the Anzac memorial.
The girls, aged nine, are from the Koomurri Aboriginal Dance Troupe and both said they were nervous about meeting and performing for Harry and Meghan.
Krystal, who did an Aboriginal art floral painting said: “They said hi and ‘nice to meet you’.”

The medallion, presented by Sienna, said “play the game”, the motto of the Beverly Hills public school which they attend.
She said: “I didn’t want to dance at first, but then it was fun.”
Their mother, Connie, said: “I think it was very overwhelming for them, as a parent.
“It was a very important ceremony and it’s important that the next generation coming through should be part of it.”

The memorial was first opened in 1934 by Harry’s great, great uncle and namesake, Prince Henry, Duke of Gloucester.
The plaque unveiled by the duke said: “Opened by the grandson of the Queen” – the wording echos the original which said “Opened by the son of the king” and was designed to focus on the people lost, not the person who opened it.
Retired General David Hurley, Governor of New South Wales told the 100,000-strong crowd: “Let silent contemplation be your offering. These words found at the entrance to the hall of silence evoke the sense of loss and grief that this memorial represents to the people of NSW.”

A choir sung “I vow to thee my country” -Princess Diana’s favourite hymn from her schooldays, which was sung both at her wedding in 1981 and her funeral in 1997.
The Sussexes laid a wreath with a handwritten note which read: “In grateful memory of those who paid the ultimate sacrifice and in recognition of the men and women for whom the scars of war endure”.
They then toured the Hall Of Service containing 1,700 soil samples from each town, suburb and district in New South Wales listed as an address for First World War enlistees.
The completion of the extension — which cost £22 million — coincides with the 100th anniversary of the cessation of hostilities in the war.

Both opted for a black shirt with the emblem of the Games, where the pair first went public with their relationship last year, proudly emblazoned on the chest.
Pregnant Meghan threw on a chic white blazer and teamed it with black skinny jeans and tortoise shell sunglasses, while Harry wore grey trousers and brown boots.
They travelled to Cockatoo Island to watch the Invictus Games Jaguar Land Rover driving challenge via boat, where the duke was seen snapping pictures on his phone.

When they arrived, Harry put an affectionate hand on his wife’s lower back as they walked along the jetty to meet with the competitors and their support staff.
They then watched the races get under way before awarding the drivers with their well-deserved medals.
The royal couple also spent some time playing with remote control cars with children who had travelled to the event from around the world with the athletes.
Harry appeared to enjoy the toys as much as the kids as he was pictured laughing and even feigning annoyance as he gestured his arms in frustration.

The couple had avoided any PDAs earlier this morning at the ceremony and were seemingly making up for it as they walked hand-in-hand around the event.
Saturday marks the couple’s fifth day of the Royal tour and yesterday things reached new heights for Harry as he and three Invictus Games competitors climbed Sydney Harbour Bridge.
The duke swapped the New South Wales standard for the Invictus flag at the top of the landmark, which towers 440ft (134m) above the water.
It took him 13 minutes to ascend the 464 steps to the top of the bridge along the east side, before crossing the central walkway to raise the flag which flapped in the breeze.
Earlier on Friday, Harry and Meghan visited another Sydney landmark – Bondi Beach.
There, the couple met representatives from OneWave to talk about their work on mental health and then visited Macarthur Girls High School to discuss social justice and youth empowerment.
