Prince Harry Hopes his Baby With Meghan Markle is a Girl

Prince Harry Hopes his Baby With Meghan Markle is a Girl

The couple had arrived in Fiji's capital of Suva earlier that day. "He's so anxious about this trip because their schedule is jam packed with engagements, and he's paranoid that it'll be too much for Meghan and their unborn baby." Aw!

After a hectic start to the 16-day tour, which also includes New Zealand, Meghan scaled back her scheduled commitments to catch up on some rest.

On Tuesday evening, the couple is due to attend a reception and state dinner hosted by Fijian President Jioji Konrote.

While it likely won't be revealed whether Markle and Harry are expecting a boy or girl until the baby is born, even Harry couldn't help but offer his own opinion on the sex of his upcoming child during a recent tour stop.

Landing in Suva yesterday, Prince Harry and Meghan were treated to a traditional welcome ceremony, which included local dancing and a few sips of kava.

Later today, Harry and Meghan will attend an official welcome ceremony at Albert Park known as the Veirqaraqaravi Vakavanua, embodying Fijian cultural identity and heritage, echoing an event attended by the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh during their Commonwealth tour in 1953.

But, as we reported previously, Markle isn't keen on missing out (Prince Harry is the one encouraging her to "pace herself") which meant Markle ended up accompanying her husband on one of the official outings on Fraser Island: a walk along Kingfisher Bay jetty followed by a meet-and-greet with the public.

At the special request of Kensington Palace, the heroic Ambulance officers were invited to personally meet with the Duke and Duchess during their short time on Fraser Island on Monday afternoon.

Despite Twitter's thoughts, the color choice was likely a tribute to Fiji, the country Markle and Harry are now traveling in, as the hue is known as "Fijian Blue".

When they first arrived in Fiji, Markle wore diamond-and-pearl earrings given to her by Her Majesty.
