Meghan skips morning event to get some rest but don't count her out just yet

Thanks to a weather delay, the Invictus Games' opening ceremony went into Sunday. That would be exhausting for anyone but perhaps no one more so than The Duchess of Sussex.

For the first time in their 16-day tour, Meghan had to hold up a white flag and was absent for Sunday morning's engagements. Kensington Palace said in a statement: "After a busy programme, The Duke and Duchess have decided to cut back The Duchess's schedule slightly for the next couple of days, ahead of the final week-and-a-half of the tour."

So that left Prince Harry on his own — but he's used to that. He hit the Royal Botanical Gardens in Sydney to cheer on the cycling competitors, where he also helped a member of Team France with his helmet, and gave out medals.

After leaving the medals ceremony, Harry was joined by Meghan (yay!) and the two met with Kookaburra Kids, which supports children living in families affected by mental illness. Megs kept it casual in a black turtleneck, pinstriped blazer by L'agence, slingback heels by Aquazurra and matchstick trousers not to mention a renewed glow, proving that a little rest goes a long way. And the youngsters they chatted with couldn't look more enraptured.

The royal couple did change for their last major event of the day: a trip to Fraser Island to check out the first-ever sailing event of any Invictus Games. It seems that Markle has managed to avoid any bouts of morning sickness and thankfully she doesn't appear to suffer from motion sickness because the boat ride over looked choppy.

After the final, there were big hugs all around. Big. Huge. "Now that's a hug," Meghan can be heard saying after Harry gets lifted off the ground. She, on the other hand, got a proper one.

The royals then headed to a reception and dinner hosted by the Prime Minister Scott Morrison for their last evening in Sydney. The couple heads to Fraser Island tomorrow, and while Meghan may travel with Harry, she might not necessarily take part in the day's engagements.

It has been confirmed she will be heading to Fiji and Tonga, but there might be some tinkering with her schedule for those days as well. Fingers crossed she gets the rest she needs because the more Meghan, the merrier.
