Mary? Until I saw the picture I thought Fred's wife had gone to Australia for Invictus after all.

Oh I can answer that easily...with Meghan. We already have photos of Harry in a forest from Fraser Island. And this will be Meghan's first overseas solo engagement.

Didn’t KP say she’ll say a few words? That’s a lot of words, KP!

Needless to say I was pleasantly surprised.

Meghan's first official speech was so well done. Personal, substantive and flawlessly delivered.

As a woman of color myself who also had to bust my butt to cover my college education, her speech really resonated with me. The BRF has the real deal with her. I hope they know that.

Agree with Terri Terri on that Axeyman.

We've had two broadcast's of Meghan's speech by Channel 9 already, but haven't yet seen Harry's!


Coverage of Meghan at the market on Oz TV now - so many phone cameras pointed at her.

Oh my! People standing on the produce stalls to get a good look at her.


And commentator saying the couple will be spending tonight on a private island.


And more on Meghan's speech!


Gee, I wish they would cheer up or something.

"Meghan's clutch was made by local women and was purchased at the Suva market in Fiji"
Meghan’s Mirror

Really liked her speech. I am sure the initiative will be appreciated.

Meghan’s visit to the Suva market has been cut short due to security risk.

One of the reporters tweeted that people were scaling walls. So I am not surprised. How disappointing for everyone but there is no way the security was going to play around.

Wonderful first speech for Meghan. Personal and well delivered

Great pictures from today. Both colorful.

Disappointing market had to be cut short but understandable for safety.

Honestly, if there was one engagement that should’ve been embargoed, this would’ve been it. There were several engagement in Australia that was embargoed, but I think those situations were far easier to control than the market today.

Meghan at the market before the madness -

(She only had six minutes there, instead of the planned twenty. And didn't get to meet the women she was supposed to.)

Video of the crowd as she is leaving. How is it that people are able to get THAT close to her car? No wonder her security detail pulled her out early. Again, this should’ve been embargoed.

It's a shame she didn't get to meet with them. Be nice if there had been a way for her to still meet them.

Agree this is kind of event secrecy might have been better with beforehand.

The Markles are off-topic. The comments about Thomas Markle and who paid for Meghan’s education, have been deleted.

WHOA. That is a security nightmare. They were way too close to her and the car. Her female RPO looked like she was about to knock someone out if they stepped out of bounds. The KP security team needed to handle that situation, and they did the best that they could under the circumstances.
