My apologies to the moderators for stating a viewpoint that has veered the thread a bit off on a different tangent.

Any updates yet on the Moroccan visit?

Meghan spoke very good French to the girls in the boarding house.

Change into high heels. I hope her feet don't swell up too much in the heat.

Just the mention of Richard Branson is enough to start me drooling. OK. I admit to having a few fantasies. Him and Gordon Lightfoot.

What is more important is that they're including the press pack in all of this. We, the public, weren't aware of all this but the press pack was. Its inclusive and its appreciative of them and when Harry and Meghan are doing their public roles, they include the media.

Press seems to be in a good mood during this trip. Although if I was having lunch there, I would be as well.

There was no way an official trip wouldn't have press following them about officially though, that's the whole point of a royal visit.

The morning events are about to begin:

Media has arrived in Asni Town in the Atlas Mountains where the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will see the work of @EFAMorocco #RoyalVisiteMorocco #RoyalTourMorocco
Yes, I noticed this, too, and can't say I like it much. I understand the need to respect local custom and protocol, but....

In that context, Richard Palmer's story is very apropos.

There's plenty of footage of British spouses walking slightly behind the actually blood member of the family. So not really a big deal IMO.

When in Rome, do as the Romans do was probably the rule of thumb for the arrival. The Duke of Edinburgh has done this many, many times over the past 67 years. Harry also took precedence in the formal greetings.

In the videos of their arrival in Asni, it wasn't that case. This brings me to a question I'd like to ask of Mademoiselle Lilo. When the henna ceremony is performed for a woman in the later stages of pregnancy, is it the norm that the husband attends? From my limited knowledge, these henna ceremonies for women (for marriage and childbirth) are a traditional female only ceremony kind of like in the western world we have bridal showers and baby showers.

Just curious on this.

It looked to me like Meghan was steered to the side while Harry inspected the guards, which would be usual protocol I think.

There is nothing odd about it. Harry was reviewing the troops, the was followed by the commander of the troops presenting the honor, once the review was over, he turned around, facing the commander, the commander then summarized the composition of the troops that have been reviewed and then he saluted him. While all of this took place, Meghan was in the back with her attendant. Once the review was over she joined him, i think they shook hands with other officials, and they walked together into the royal arrival suite for the dates and milk welcoming ceremony, before proceeding to their car.

It is the way it is, and It has nothing to do with Moroccan or Islamic culture

When President Macron visited Belgium at the arrival ceremony, Queen Malthide and Madame Macron stayed in the back, While King Philippe and President Macron did the review. Even in the UK at the arrival of Head of State at Horse Guard parade, it was Duke of Edinburgh who used to accompany the Head of State during the review while the spouses stay put. He did it with the King of Spain, With President Obama, in the garden of Buckingham. Prince Charles did it with the King Wilhem Alexander. The review The Queen did herself was with Trump at Windsor lately

You are right those cermonies are girls thing:henna for Bride is usually party for females friends and family in Morocco no harm the groom attends with his mother but he have to pay to attend in some others countries it's kind of bachelorette party all fun..
Henna for pregnant women is also a girls thing kind of moroccan baby shower again no harm if the father attend.

This I understand, on arrival at Casablanca airport but it was the same situation when they arrived in Rabat. More guards to inspect as their was a head bow along with the ambassador?

If I remember correctly, there's supposed to be an evening event later today. Does anyone know a specific time, so we can have an idea of when pictures may drop?

Enjoying catching up on today's events now that I am awake.

Meghan sounded wonderful what I heard of her French, with an accent.

I love the henna ceremony. Its wonderful that they did one for her, to include her in the tradition for pregnant women. I am sure it was a special moment for Meghan, made her feel really welcome. Though I understand its often just women at it, was nice to see Harry there as well.

As always I love seeing these two interacting with kids. Always enjoyment.

Drooling over Richard Branson's retreat where they had lunch. Stunning.

Yes walking behind the royal spouse is common enough at official events. Its just more noticeable with Harry and Meghan as it is really a first for them. They are usually side by side. Respect not only for his position, but for the more traditional Arab country they are visiting right now. I didn't even blink at the military parade. He was inspecting the troops, so walking with the commander was expected. I'd have been surprised if Meghan was with him.

New look

Harry & Meghan have arrived at the residence of the British Ambassador @TSAReilly. The #dukeandduchessofsussex were welcomed by Mr Reilly’s two daughters Orla, 12 and Elsa, 8, who gave Meghan a bouquet of flowers they helped pick from the garden of the house #RoyalvisitMorocco

Nice seeing Harry and Meghan interacting with the girls. Must have been exciting for them to get to welcome the royals.

Cute touch that they picked the flowers from their garden to give her
