The pregnant Duchess of Sussex, as expected, passed up the opportunity to drink it.

The duke spoke of the reception at a dinner hosted by President of Fiji Jioji Konrote at the Grand Pacific Hotel.

Prince Harry said he and his wife were "overwhelmed" by the welcome they received in Fiji.

Looking rested and happy as ever, Meghan cradled her baby bump dressed in a striped linen dress by American eco-friendly brand Reformation, pairing it with the Sarah Flint Greargladiator sandals she wore earlier this summer to a polo match.

As a matter of fact, Meghan was forced to sit out on three engagements, including one to Fraser Island, which Prince Harry had to do on his own.

It was reported last week that Meghan, 37, recently had a 12-week ultrasound.

Upon their arrival at the traditional welcome ceremony yesterday, the Duke of Sussex Prince Harry says he and the Dutchess of Sussex Meghan Markle hope to meet as many Fijians as possible over the next two days.

The couple also attended the Veirqaraqaravi Vakavanua ceremony, a celebration of Fijian culture, at Albert Park.

Both Meghan and Harry will speak at their university engagement, which will be live-streamed to other unis in the Pacific region.

The Duchess will attend a morning tea at the British High Commissioner's Residence and hear about a United Nations Women's project, Markets for Change, which promotes women's empowerment in marketplaces throughout the Pacific.

Prior to the evening's soiree, the Duke and Duchess were welcome to the island of Fiji on the eighth day of their royal tour, in the same way Harry's grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, and her husband, Prince Phillip, were welcome to the island country in 1954. The Serena Williams "Boss" blazer, the chic Karen Walker sunglasses and that classic beige trench coat were all eye-catching, but Meghan's gorgeous selection of dresses really drew our attention.
