Meghan Markle was laughing all through, while she and Prince Harry received an amazing, memorable song during their journey to Tonga.
The royal couple were on their first joint royal tour and arrived on Thursday in the Polynesian island after a trip to Fiji. The following day, they stopped by at Tupou College, on the main island of Tongatapu, for the opening ceremony of the rainforest.
While they were at the college choir of the College entertained the duo with a song intended to dispel mosquitoes, and other insects. At that instance, Meghan burst into laughter, with tears in her eyes.
The Duchess of Sussex and the Duke of Sussex would have gotten medical advice about Zika before going on the trip. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has warned pregnant women against unnecessary travel to Zika infected areas, including Tong and Fiji, as the infection may cause severe birth issues. For those who have to go there, the CDC recommends taking precautionary measures to avoid mosquitoes and adopt condoms for the rest of the pregnancy.
Meghan was wearing a blue Veronica Beard dress with rolled sleeves and blue shoes. Harry was wearing a navy shirt with sleeves up, khaki and tan boots.
During the trip to Tonga, the duo met with local artisans and merchants, while a group of singers and dancers called Masani performed island music and songs. Harry was showcasing a little dance, according to British reports. They also joined the Son and Daughter of King Tupou VI, at Fa’onelua Center.
The princess said the British royal couple had inspired Youth of the Commonwealth Nations with their youth empowerment drive.
Meghan and Harry started their two weeks trip earlier this month and had traveled to Australia, where an official statement via Kensington Palace and Fiji confirmed the Duchess pregnancy on their arrival.
Over the weekend they will travel to New Zealand, where they will end their 16days tour.
