Royal Tour: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in Fiji on day 9

Royal Tour: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in Fiji on day 9

The Duke of Sussex was here to lay a wreath and to show both his personal appreciation of Fiji's ongoing connection with the British Armed Forces and to give thanks on behalf of his grandmother, The Queen.

The duke spoke of his admiration for the Fijian service personnel at a black tie dinner hosted by the president on Tuesday night.

Meanwhile, Prince Harry sported a smart grey suit, with his military medals pinned to his chest, for the momentous occasion, looking every bit the proud soldier. Prince Harry would be flying solo for the official side of the day while Markle presumably spent the day resting at their accommodation. Regardless, we love that Meghan's taking style cues from her fellow duchess.

The duke and duchess received a traditional island welcome, complete with dancing.

Duchess Kate has also been known to wear the designer, choosing a pretty broderie anglaise midi dress for her tour of Australia in 2014.

There was a light drizzle when Prince Harry and Meghan landed Tuesday afternoon at Nausori Airport near the capital Suva.

The royal couple will spend three days in Fiji, attending a number of formal events as well as meeting local people who are making a difference in the community.
