The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are now six days into their Australian royal tour but Meghan will no longer attend all of the couple's upcoming engagements due to pregnancy "taking its toll".
This morning, Prince Harry attended a road cycling event held at Sydney's botanical garden solo while Meghan rested following the 2018 Invictus Games opening ceremony.
Last night's event ran two hours later than anticipated due to a thunderstorm and Prince Harry reportedly told competitors today that Meghan was "resting back at home".
A source said: “She is not sick, just tired.”
Meghan arrived for a later reception and chatted happily to guests,
“We have to try to pace her. She had a very late night last night.

The Duchess of Sussex later joined Prince Harry for a reception hosted by Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison at The Pavilion Restaurant.

For the outing, the 37-year-old dressed in a £510 L'Agence pinstriped blazer teamed with skinny jeans and her go-to Tabitha Simmons shoes.
To finish the ensemble, Meghan brought back the cross-body Oroton bag she was first photographed wearing to a Commonwealth event back in April alongside her go-to £490 Aquazzura heels.
The couple will fly to Fraser Island tomorrow where the Duchess of Sussex is expected to miss a handful of engagements.
