    Since embarking on their 16-day tour, all eyes have been on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. The couple announced that they are expecting as they touched down in Sydney last week, and since then all we can talk about is the royal baby – what pregnancy rules will Meghan have to follow? Did Harry hint that they are having a baby girl? And why did Meghan refuse this food in Melbourne?

    The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have already travelled around Australia, visiting schools and families, and sharing the cutest moments together – did you see those umbrella pictures? And the snaps of them walking along the beach?

    Now, Harry and Meghan are on the second leg of their tour in Fiji.

    They attended a state dinner – a black-tie reception hosted by the Fijian prime minister, and Harry proved what a supportive husband he is with one small but very meaningful gesture.

    As all those in attendance raised a glass, Harry reportedly decided to toast with water instead. Why? Because that’s exactly what Meghan was doing, given that she is pregnant and not drinking alcohol.

    The insight came from royal reporter Omid Scobie, who shared the news on Twitter.

    Alongside a picture of the couple, Omid wrote: ‘Meghan and Harry both toasting with water at tonight’s reception (@FIJIWater, natch).’

    Meghan stunned in a gorgeous blue Ginkgo cape dress by Safiyaa, and finished the look with gorgeous statement earrings.

    Many noticed that the glowing Duchess was cradling her bump throughout the evening, and Harry was keen to share why the trip is so special to him.

    ‘This visit is particularly nostalgic for us as a young married couple – my grandparents stayed in this very hotel, the Grand Pacific, a number of times over the years,’ Harry told the attendees.

    Well isn’t that just the sweetest thing?
