Neil Alexander takes his boat to Fraser Island in hope of to catch a glimpse of his favourite royal

Harry and Meghan's 16-day royal tour will take them to Fiji Tuesday.

Meghan and Harry touched down in Australia last week at the start of a 15-day Royal tour. The duchess, who is pregnant with her first child - showed off her sartorial know-how by wearing the color of the Fijian flag.

The jam-packed schedule in the first week has exhausted the Duchess of Sussex, and Kensington Palace announced that she would be scaling back some of her engagements during this tour to rest.

The 37-year-old wore the dress by label SAFiYAA at a black tie reception in Suva, after attending a welcome ceremony at the nearby Albert Park.

As they landed on the tar mac, Meghan had to hold on to her hat as strong winds threatened to snatch it along with the red carpet rolled out for them.

Land and sea rangers and dancers who met Prince Harry told of a mutual respect, acknowledging the significance of his visit to their land and new understanding of traditional Butchulla practices.

Harry's itinerary also touched on the history of logging on Fraser Island, whose famed hardwood trees were used to build the London's docks in the 1930s.

But she did join her husband for a public walkabout on Kingfisher Bay Jetty and was seen holding her stomach as she made her way along the pier.

What's more, the Duchess's tour style has been well within the bounds of royal protocol - until yesterday, day seven on the tour.

But she surprised royal fans with a stylish appearance at the walkabout, and the 37-year-old will be returning to her normal tour schedule as the couple hit the tarmac and head to Fiji on October 23.

Australia's Governor-General Sir Peter Cosgrove and his wife Lynne presented Harry and Meghan with a toy kangaroo and a little pair of Ugg boots for their baby, which is due in the spring.

Her Majesty and the Duke of Edinburgh travelled to Fiji aboard the SS Gothic in December of 1953.
