The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have decided to cut back Meghan’s schedule “slightly” during their tour of Australia, Kensington Palace says.

Meghan, who is pregnant, expended the morning resting, while Harry dedicated out medals to Invictus Games athletes.

Flying solo with fellow ex-servicemen, Harry could not defy trying on a gift pair of tight swimming trunks, known as budgie smugglers, over his trousers.

The duchess then joined the prince for involvements later in the working day.

The couple, who are expecting a child next spring , have 76 events on their schedule during their 16 -day tour of Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and Tonga.

Meghan pulled out of the morning’s activities after the opening ceremony of the Invictus Games overran by virtually two hours on Saturday night.

A Kensington Palace spokesman said: “After a busy programme, the duke and duchess have decided to cut back the duchess’s schedule somewhat for the next couple of days, ahead of the final week-and-a-half of the tour.”

The Duke of Sussex subsequently proved off his sense of humour by signing an athlete’s swimming trunks, and even modelling a pair presented to him over his jeans.
