  • Prince Harry greets a competitor at the Invictus Games

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will spend the day in Fiji today, after arriving yesterday afternoon and being greeted by thousands of royal fans. Her baby isn't even here yet, but the mom-to-be has already been keeping her little one safe while on her first royal tour with Prince Harry, 34.

The Duchess of Sussex, 37, continued her tour of the South Pacific on Tuesday, attending a state dinner hosted by the president of Fiji, Jioji Konrote, at the Grand Pacific Hotel.

The pair had a whirlwind day in Fraser Island on Monday, with pregnant Meghan stepping out of a couple of engagements.

While Kate Middleton usually adheres to the below-the-knee hemline protocol, she has been known on various occasions to wear a thigh-high front or side split, including back in 2016 when she wore a blue Altuzarra dress with defined thigh-high split to an official engagement in Essex.

But as she stepped off the plane she was spotted sporting gifts from the Queen and Prince Phillip.

About 15,000 people, many holding union flags and pictures of the royal couple, packed into Albert Park in downtown Suva for the ceremony led by elders in grass skirts.

Chinese city to launch artificial moon in hopes of replacing street lights
While it might sound implausible, Wu says the technology has been in the works for years and has now "matured" toward readiness. One moon apparently isn't enough for the Chinese city of Chengdu, according to a report in the People's Daily .

The indigenous K'gari who live on the island performed a traditional dance and held a smoking ceremony to welcome Harry into a forest of trees that are over 1,000 years old.

The royal visit is taking place during an election campaign, and Harry and Meghan were due to meet leaders from all political parties at a state dinner later Tuesday.

The Prince of Wales met local chiefs in October 1970, and handed over independence to Fiji. Fiji remains a part of the Commonwealth group of countries and is a popular destination for tourists thanks to its warm climate and beaches.

The duchess had her arms protected with long sleeves as she arrived in Fiji, apparently to ward off any mosquitoes that could carry the Zika virus.

After their time in Fiji, the royals will take a chartered flight to Tonga.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's Australian tour has now taken them to the paradise island of Fiji off the coast of Oz.
