When the Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced their pregnancy on October 15, they assured fans that they'd be undertaking their tour as planned - all 76 engagements scheduled over 16 days in four Commonwealth countries.

The ceremony was delayed by heavy rain about two hours before it was due to start.

In a nod to her host country, she's been wearing some very stylish numbers by local brands including Karen Gee, Dion Lee and Martin Grant. She wants to do everything, but Prince Harry is encouraging her to pace herself.

Harry and Meghan will also visit Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand during their 16-day tour.

Harry was on hand for Invictus Games events in Sydney on Sunday morning where members of the Australia team presented the prince with a pair of budgie smugglers. "And you are going to put on one hell of a show over the next week".

"To be honest he's so down to earth, one of the boys really", Kent said. "They are overwhelmed by the warmth of the welcome and the people".

"They've enabled me to handle people more, they've got something to approach me about. I just thank them", he said. The lighthearted but meaningful gathering took place on Sydney, Australia's Bondi Beach, and it included yoga sessions, a big group hug, and some time spent chatting with the group in an "anti-bad vibes circle". It's not like it's something he says and then walks off and forgets about it.

Later that day Higgins shared an Instagram post of her meeting with the Meghan, detailing their conversation and praising the Duchess for tackling a day of engagements while four months pregnant.

Earlier in the day, the couple geared up for the night's festivities by attending the Jaguar Land Rover Driving Challenge, where they proved their parental prowess by playing with kids and remote-controlled cars.

In the evening, the couple attended a reception for the Games and went on to attend the opening ceremony. "The Duke will continue with the engagements on Fraser Island", a reference to an island off the eastern coast of Australia, near Brisbane.
