When I think of the heavy schedule for this tour, I think that Sheldon from Big Bang Theory would be over the moon about it. He's a big stickler for scheduling things y'know. Most people don't realize this but if they're on a event and arrive at 11:43, meet and greet until 12:10 with lunch from 12:15 to 12:45 etc, they have people to nudge them to keep on schedule. We saw them commentating on TV how far behind schedule they were because of that accident.

Where does Sheldon come in really? He's great for bathroom times. When Harry and Meghan are on the clock at these places, they can't just say "excuse me" and head off to the bathroom. They're not heading back to Admiralty House just to change their clothes. I've often wondered if their RPOs or assistants ask them "Do you think you should go before we leave ma'am (or sir) to be on the safe side?"

I can't remember where exactly I read it but contingencies are drawn up in case a royal needs to use the loo during an engagement. Its an area that is super checked out, emptied and has RPO stationed at the door when in use. You never hear of it though. At least I have never, to this day, heard that the royal has left the room to use the "facilities". Having been pregnant 4 times in my lifetime, the "facilities" and pregnancy go hand in hand. A lot.

How hard can it be? Very hard when you take little things normally not thought of into consideration.

We don't know yet if Meghan will attend some engagements or none on Fraser Island? It was not announced yet? But she will go with Harry since they will sleep on the island correct? I hope she is fine, her health and baby comes first.

There are conflicting reports on this right now. Although either way, she won't attend most of them. Some RRs that's been there before have expressed concern over the uneven terrain they'll have to travel though in addition to give her a break before Fiji.

As reported earlier Harry wants Meghan to “pace herself” Royal sources have said Fraser Island is “challenging terrain” so we will see how much she’s up to later-Mom & baby’s health most important It is a grueling schedule and she has done magnificently #DukeandDuchessOfSussex

Sunny clear day forecast on Fraser Island today. They had a storm last night so the island will be nice and fresh.
Would be great if Meghan while resting at Kingfisher Bay resort gets to see migrating whales go past. The annual migration is nearly over, however they come past quite close to the coast. To see breaching whales splashing and rising vertically from the water is quite a sight.
In places the white sand is so fine it squeaks as you walk on it.

Thanks Axeyman - I missed that.

I'm already looking forward to it!


TV schedule has been updated - Channel 9 has two dedicated "specials" today for the Fraser Island visit - 11.30 till 12.30 and again between 2.00pm and 3.00pm.

And just announced by Channel 9 that Kennsington Palace has confirmed that Meghan will be leaving all public engagements on Fraser up to Harry alone today.

Karl Stefanovic already doing live crosses from the excited locals.

The couple will be flying to Hervey Bay, and then taking a boat across to Fraser.

Maybe we will see Meghan on that long, long, long jetty.

Have a great tour day everyone.


And sorry Fros - no sign of Frederik yet, though there were some radio reports of him sailing about yesterday. (But I think we would have a photo or two if that was actually the case. Time will tell I guess.)

We have been worried about the Fiji and Tonga visits and the affects of the zika virus. Just found this article.
https://m.medicalxpress.com/news/201...ic-meghan.html
Quote:
But WHO said the most recent case of the mosquito-borne virus in Fiji was in 2017 and there had been no recorded cases in Tonga since 2016.

"At the moment, there is really no evidence of a Zika virus outbreak in Fiji," Dr Angela Merianos, a Suva-based communicable diseases specialist with WHO told AFP.

She said the situation was similar in Tonga, adding: "Overall, the risk is low and there lots of things that you can do to decrease that risk even further."
I could well imagine that the palace and the FCO has kept a close eye on the situation in Fiji and Tonga especially with Meghan being pregnant.

I imagine the people of Fraser Island are disappointed but if that terrain is that rough she needs to think of herself and the baby. They need to rethink Fiji and Tonga because of Zika.

Not only Zika but as women seem to attract mosquitoes even more when they are pregnant, there's a higher risk of any mosquito transmitted disease.

On the lighter side of things, the Duke of Edinburgh once stated on a tour of the Caribbean that "you have mosquitoes, I have the press". In this regards Meghan has both surrounding her on this tour.

Meghan and Harry’s ott pda hasn’t escaped the attention of Amanda Platell and the DM:

“Yes she’s joyfully pregnant, yes it’s her first big tour with Harry, but does Meghan have to cling on to her husband constantly as if her life depended upon it?”

Hardly OTT.

And Amanda continues her brand of being bitter and petty

I find it extremely sexist for anyone to put this on the woman. Harry reaches for her just as much, if not more. But somehow it's her "clinging" to him. Is it that shocking to people that a husband and wife might want to hold hands or put their arms around each other?

Sun Lion,

There is a meet and greet after the jetty engagement I believe. Hopefully we will see Megsie there.

This morning they fly into Hervey Bay then Harry will take a boat across to Fraser Island. Not 100% sure if Meghan will go as well. If she stays behind in Hervey Bay there is always the chance for her to see whales going past.

Harrys first engagement is at midday.
The rainforest is the only one in the world that grows out of sand.
It was logged after the war, some of the big trees replaced the pylons damaged during the war at Canary wharf London.
For many decades there were wild horses living on the island until they were removed some time ago.

Meghan's critics are disappointed the tour is a success so far and I guess they hoped she would fall flat on her face. I imagine part of the entourage is an OB/GYN who is looking out for her but they are not saying. Meghan should tune out the noise, put her feet up and have Harry rub them.

I do too. Its so open and loving and seems so natural, it puts in mind for me that its almost childlike in its innocence. Two best friends that love being attached to each other without qualms and without restraint. They did say in their marriage vows that they took each other to have and to hold. Harry and Meghan seem to do this every chance they get and I love it.

They love each other and are still newlyweds. It's not like everyone is saying "just get a room already."

I would like to see her - she has to get from the jetty to the resort, so I hope it happens.

Thanks again Axeyman.

Ya know..it's like the media has no idea who Harry is...he's always been open with his emotions and affectionate with people. Did they expect him to marry and all the sudden become reserved and non-demonstrative?
