Pregnant Meghan takes break from Australia royal tour

Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Duchess of Sussex meet guests at a reception inside Sydney's iconic Opera House on Saturday

HELLO! magazine's royal editor Emily Nash wrote: "The Duchess of Sussex won't be attending the cycling this morning after last night's late finish, but should join the Duke for the other engagements".

A regular championship for injured servicemen and women was an idea begging to be stolen, Harry said when he originally launched the Invictus Games.

But before the rain and severe storms delayed the outdoor Opening Ceremony by over an hour, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle had already gotten into the Invictus spirit on Cockatoo Island. At the 2018 Invictus Games Opening Ceremony on Saturday evening, Harry couldn't resist making a reference to the couple's baby.

The first event of the Invictus Games - the Jaguar Land Rover Driving Challenge - got underway in the afternoon, with the Duke and Duchess on hand to watch.

The former serviceman, who toured Northern Ireland as a mine warfare specialist, said: "I used them so people would leave me alone and that I felt safe".

He said USA officials took this as a sign that the Chinese are interested in stabilizing the military relationship. Beijing has increased its presence in recent years by building artificial islands that host the military bases.

They are due to attend a private reception for the Invictus Games Foundation at Government House late Sunday before heading off to Fraser Island in Queensland state.

The Invictus Games, which had been held around the world since 2014, is a Paralympic-style competition for wounded and recovering service members and veterans from around the world. Harry and Meghan made their debut as a couple at the 2017 Invictus Games in Toronto.

"Our Invictus family has turned these Games into a symbol of strength, honour and optimism for a new generation". Of course, this over-affection could have to do with the fact that Meghan and Harry just confirmed on October 15 that she's pregnant with their first child. Flash forward 12 months and the couple are newly-married and expecting a bundle of joy!

Meghan reportedly replied to Wolf and said, "We've been given a long list of names from everyone. We're going to sit down and have a look at them".

Meghan will fly to Fraser Island for the next stop on their tour, but Harry will carry out the planned programme of events on his own.
