tag must be attached to return item is something standard written on most tags for most clothing. It was a careless mistake I doubt they plan to return the dress.

Meghan has worn Self Portrait a number of times, even before meeting Harry. It seems to be favorite for her. I highly doubt there were plans to return it. Given the circumstances, it's much more likely that the tag was simply missed.

I think it was a JCrew coat. She had forgotten to remove the tailor's tack stitch in the back which is there when you buy a new item.

There is a forest visit on today's itinerary for both of them. I wonder if she'll sit that one out?

Channel 7 is at the handicraft display that has been set up for the couple to see jacqui24, and are expecting Harry and Meghan there after meeting the Prime Minister and his Cabinet.

After going to the Convention Centre for the handicrafts, they'll be visiting the oldest secondary school in the South Pacific.

The Tongan "red carpet" - awaiting the couple.

Looking forward to another great day for this tour.

Sounds like it's going to be quite a busy day. They also have the Australian Geographical Society awards in Sydney tonight.

Agree Axeyman. At least they will gain a few hours coming back to Sydney with the time difference.

Eddie Bartholomew has shown us the mat - made of mulberry bark - that will be gifted to the couple when they are at the handicraft display.

This should be a good event - looks very controlled regarding crowds.

The ladies doing a weaving display are singing and clapping as they weave.

Long sleeved striped dress for Meghan today - love the shape. Another winner outfit. (By Martin Grant.)

They've arrived to see the Prime Minister.

Some photos -

Meghan's bump seems to be growing each time we see a new photo of her! She and Harry have both been looking nothing but delighted whilst visiting members of the public on this tour.
Meghan also did incredibly well during her first speech - she's very natural and confident when she speaks.

The designer of last night's white dress had only two days to rush it to Meghan after a request came through at the end of September.

And guessed about the pregnancy, when it was requested to have extra seam allowance.

A sketch of the dress -

And the designer and the dress -

Harry and Meghan off to the school now - handicraft exhibit done and dusted.


Sometimes the waiting around really can be too much - (at the Prime Minister's visit.)

Formal dinner at the Shangri La Hotel, near the Harbour, tonight for that.


Meghan on the carpet - green/khaki stipes on the dress to match the shoes.

That has got to be one of my favorite photos from this tour. I imagine there are quite a few people who wished that they could do the same.

Lovely pictures from today's event! Very relaxing event but at the same time organized. Just curiosity, I mean no harm, but women in Tonga sure are full-figured/well-built, and from the photos is almost every women...my curiosity is, is it because of lifestyle, or dietary traditions or just genetics?

Hahaha I think maybe the poor little thing fainted after Harry hugged him. He was one of the kids holding up the 'Free Hugs' sign. Super cute!

It appears to be genetic and not only from Tonga, but the general population in that part of the Pacific.

Dress change for Meghan - pretty blue. And pretty shoes.

The couple are now at the school and then to the forest reserve for the Queen's Canopy dedication.

Then off to say goodbye to Tonga's Royals, and the airport to fly back to Sydney.

The couple, accompanied by the Princess, are now at the forest reserve for the Queen's Canopy event.

And checking out a parrot, back at the college.

See you in Sydney Harry, Meghan.

This was a very busy day really, with distinctly different locations and points of interest. I hope they got a lot out of it. And now back to Sydney and yet another engagement! They will sleep well tonight, I think!

Great pictures from today. Thanks for sharing

I love the mat they received from the market. Wonderful gift

They looked very cheerful in their Tongan garland/belts.

Makes me want to visit in the future.
