A new day, a new island for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex

Before the flight to the Kingdom of Tonga, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex made a quick stop in Nadi.

Not even leaving the airport, the Duke and Duchess joined those gathered to commemorate the life of Sergeant Talaiasi Labalaba.

Meghan was dressed in a green Jason Wu dress, with Harry in a suit displaying his medals.

Protected by a tent from the sweltering heat, Harry and Meghan watched on as a traditional welcome ceremony took place. Very similar to the one they experienced in Suva.

Prince Harry was once again offered Kava, a drink with sedative powers. Unlike the first time where he struggled to swallow the muddy drink, he took a sip with ease.

A quick address to the crowd where Harry said he and the Duchess would cherish their time on the island. Before departing for Tonga, the Duke unveiled a new statue in front of arrivals at the Nadi Airport.

The statue was of Sergent Talaiasi Labalaba, a British-Fijian soldier who died in 1972 Battle of Mirbat.

After an official farewell at the airport, they boarded the plane for Tonga.

Once on a new island, the Duke and Duchess held a private audience with the King. Meghan had her third outfit change of the day into a white gown by Theia.

From the private audience, an open-air reception in the grounds of the Consulate was held.

Meghan stood out in her white dress amongst a sea of colourful traditional uniforms as the Duke and Duchess greeted some of the guests before dinner and entertainment.

Meghan was frequently congratulated on her baby and Harry was heard teasing a guest that he was the better looking one in his family.

Tomorrow they will tour the area before flying back to Sydney for the closing of the 2018 Invictus Games on Saturday.
