Meghan Markle Bends Royal Wardrobe Rules With Daring Summer Dress

A laughing Prince Harry models the budgie smugglers given to him by the Australian Invictus team

The former "Suits" actress wore a gorgeous, $1,430 blue, caped dress by Safiyaa to attend a state dinner in Fiji with her husband, Prince Harry.

The palace said in a statement: "After a busy programme, the duke and duchess have chose to cut back the duchess's schedule slightly for the next couple of days, ahead of the final week-and-a-half of the tour". The couple arrived from Australia, where Meghan, who is four months pregnant, had her schedule reduced in recent days.

The duchess wears a striped dress by Reformation (which is now unavailable online) on day 7 of the royal tour.

The Duchess is now pregnant with the couple's first child and she showed her tiny baby bump while greeting guests at the dinner that evening!

Dozens of people from the village of Nakelo took to the Albert Park turf to perform for the Duke and Duchess.

The couple also attended a reception and dinner hosted by Fiji's president.

On Monday, Harry made the trek into an ancient forest for a royal engagement, reports CBS News' Jonathan Vigliotti.

As a matter of fact, Meghan was forced to sit out on three engagements, including one to Fraser Island, which Prince Harry had to do on his own.

A group of friends Suva Priscilla, Claire and Margie, told local reporters: "We will stand here for as long as we can", to catch a glimpse of Harry and Meghan.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussexmarked one week on royal tour in Australia with a casual trip to Fraser Island - but many were anxious they wouldn't see Duchess Meghanat all that day. The Duke of Sussex asked for them to repeat their statement to which he responded, "So do I!" For their arrival, Meghan this time opted for a custom dress by Australian brand Zimmermann, loved by style bloggers and celebrities for its feminine, floaty designs.

The couple, who married in May and announced last week that they were expecting a child, next travel to Tonga and return to Australia for the closing ceremony of the Invictus Games before wrapping up their tour in New Zealand.
