Meghan Markle scales back her royal tour commitments due to her pregnancy

Prince Harry Meghan Markle Luke Vincent

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have made a decision to cut back Meghan's schedule "slightly" during their tour of Australasia, says Kensington Palace.

Prince Harry has told well-wishers on his tour of Australia that he is hoping his new baby will be a girl.

As Prince Harry practised his speech at the Opera House ahead of the Invictus Games opening ceremony, the Duchess of Sussex sat alone in the front row to support him. "She was the most handsome baby". It's been an exhausting week, and although the Duchess hasn't had any morning sickness, she has been very exhausted.

Meghan, 37, has cut back slightly on her tour schedule following last week's announcement that she's pregnant with the couple's first child. "The Duke will continue with the engagements on Fraser Island as planned".

Harry was scheduled for a range of engagements on the world's biggest sand island, known as K'gari in the local indigenous language, on day seven of their Australian tour. But if we know anything about Meghan and Harry, it's that they aren't afraid to break tradition. Other royal sources said that Meghan's no-show at Sunday morning's race was due to Saturday night's events going longer than expected due to a delay by a storm.

The couple will head to Fraser Island on October 22, where there are a number of engagements on the schedule.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were welcomed by the Butchulla People, the traditional owners of the island, which is called K'gari in their native language.

Harry replied: "So do I".

The Independent reports a source close to the couple said The Duchess "wants to do everything, but Prince Harry is encouraging her to pace herself".

He'll also unveil a plaque to dedicate the popular holiday spot's 206,970 acres of pristine rainforests to the Queen's Commonwealth Canopy project.

The royal couple have had a gruelling schedule since arriving in Australia on Monday, visiting Sydney, Melbourne and the regional town of Dubbo, as well as opening the Olympic-style Invictus Games for disabled and wounded soldiers.
