Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry’s 16-day tour of Australia and the South Pacific continues.

The duke and duchess began their first full day in Tonga with a visit to the St. George Government Building to meet the prime minister of Tonga, Akilisi Pohiva, and other cabinet members.

The stylish newlyweds donned semiformal attire for the affair. Meghan looked stunning in a green-and-white striped cotton dress by Australian designer Martin Grant, with matching green suede pumps and a Prada clutch. Prince Harry looked equally dapper in a light blue suit.

They were gifted with flower garlands before visiting an exhibition of Tongan products and handicrafts, including traditional mats and “tapa” cloth. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex greeted local craftsmen and traders, plus youngsters offering free hugs.

Health officials say the Zika virus, which can cause birth defects, is present in mosquitoes in the island nation. The expectant mother will deliver the couple’s first child in the spring.
