Wouldn't Meghan be 7 months pregnant? I thought that women shouldn't travel at that advanced stage of pregnancy?

Most airlines are typically happy for people to fly until week 32 of the pregnancy.

Unlikely, if they are indeed no longer a couple.

It's at Foreign Office's request. I don't think I've heard either being tied to a charity there specifically.

It is a diplomatic tour on behalf of HM's government.

Hmmm ok will be interesting to see what they do while there.

Would not enjoy flying that far along, let alone the heat ...clothing will be tricky unless she gets lucky and just wears caftans!

I'm a bit surprised and concerned about this trip, frankly. I understand the FO wanting Harry and Meghan to go (although who knows, perhaps they were the only royals with gaps in their schedules at the time) but at this point in her pregnancy, I am not liking the idea of Meghan flying for that amount of time and being away from her own doctors. I'm sure it will all go well, but it just strikes me as a little risky.

Kate was traveling heavily pregnant this time last year. I think Meghan will be just fine.

I hope and expect she will be. However, you never know. As I mentioned on another thread, a woman can be having a textbook perfect pregnancy, but when something goes wrong, it can go wrong in a spectacular way. One of my elder daughter's closest friends recently experienced a placental abruption at 7 months after a pregnancy that had had zero indications of anything weird. If she had been five minutes further away from a top-rated hospital, she and the baby both would be dead. As it was, they both almost died. If she had been, say, on an airplane on the way to Morocco, she would certainly be dead.

Morocco has always had a good relationship with the UK. It's strategically important and is near Gibraltar. Ferries travel between the two countries every day and there is quite a little diaspora of Gibraltar residents in Morocco I believe. I know Boris Johnson had strategic talks with his Moroccan counterpart in London last summer, also that the UK is involved in building some educational links.

I find it interesting that they're visiting Morocco a week after Felipe and Letizia have visited from Spain. I guess it has nothing to do with the country closest to Morocco in Europe
