Pregnant Meghan Markle has been told to ‘take care’ by a concerned doctor, during her hectic royal tour.

The Duke and Duchess will have covered a total of 76 engagements and travelled extensively, by the end of their 16-day overseas visit to Australia, Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand.

The couple arrived in Tonga on Thursday afternoon (local time) and attended an official welcome dinner at Consular House in central Nuku’alofa with King Tupou VI and Queen Nanasipau’u.

They met with an array of dignitaries, including Justice Charles Cato, a New Zealand judge and his Russian wife Miriam.

Mrs Cato said: “I asked, how does she feel? She responded, ‘Very well, thank you.’ I said, ‘No visible signs yet!’”

The Duchess then looked down at her white embellished Theia dress and laughed.

Mrs Cato added: “As a doctor I was a bit concerned to about her taking all these long trips.

“I’m a mother of two. I know how it feels.

“I asked her to take care of herself. She promised to do so.”

Meghan, who is around four months pregnant, has cut back her schedule slightly in order to pace herself throughout the busy trip.

After spending the night in Tonga, the couple have a morning of engagements, before they return to Sydney on Friday afternoon to attend the Australian Geographic Society Awards.

Over the weekend, Harry and Meghan will watch the Invictus Games Wheelchair Basketball final and the Closing Ceremony.

On Sunday, they fly to New Zealand for the final four days of their tour.
