A royal insider revealed that it's her husband who wants her to slow down, saying, "She wants to do everything, but Prince Harry is encouraging her to pace herself", so she's been respectful and listened to his concerns.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's first royal tour of Australia continued on Monday as the couple travelled to Fraser Island, in Queensland.

Markle's very first tour outfit-a fitted white dress from Australian brand Karen Gee, which showed off her newly announced pregnancy perfectly-saw the brand's site crash nearly as soon as the label responsible was named.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will be accorded a Guard of Honor before being escorted to Borron House at 5.10pm to meet President Jioji Konrote.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will spend two full days in Fiji before exploring Tonga and then New Zealand.

Following a busy week of engagements, the castle reported late on Saturday that the Duchess of Sussex would cut down her schedule.

After taking part in a traditional "Welcome to Country" smoking ceremony with representatives of the local Butchulla indigenous people, Harry unveiled a plaque dedicating the popular holiday island's pristine rainforests to Queen Elizabeth's Commonwealth Canopy project.

According to several royal correspondents, Meghan is "feeling fine" but her team are trying to "pace things for her".

"If it has been a very late night due to unforeseen circumstances, we have to adjust for that", the source said. The couple spent the weekend kicking off the Invictus Games, where Harry admitted to a fan that he hopes he and Meghan will have a baby girl.

And Prince Harry has remained protective over wife Meghan Markle during the whirlwind tour - insisting the 37-year-old take a break from official duties and rest up on the sixth day of their tour.
