The Duchess of Sussex looked sensational on her first official engagement in Tonga with her husband Prince Harry. Following a wonderful visit to Australia and Fiji, the royal couple were all smiles as they arrived at Consular House in central Nuku'alofa for a private audience with His Majesty King Tupou VI and Queen Nanasipau-u. Meghan, who is expecting her first child, was radiant in a floor-length white gown by New York designer Theia. The beautiful dress featured sparkling shoulder details, and the former actress teamed it with a stunning ring from her late mother-in-law Princess Diana's collection - which looks to be the same aquamarine piece she wore for her royal wedding reception.

Meghan once again slightly changed her hairstyle at the engagement, wearing her brunette locks in a higher bun than her usual low chignon. She also wore her favourite Aquazzura Deneuve heels, which she often chooses for formal engagements. The royal went for a classic makeup look, accentuating her eyes with a smoky eyeshadow and mascara and wearing a sweep of blush on her cheeks. Her clutch bag is by Givenchy, and earrings by Birks.

Earlier in the day, the Duke and Duchess were welcomed at Fua'amotu Airport by Her Royal Highness The Princess Angelika Latufuipeka. It has been a busy few days for the royal couple as they made several visits during their stay in Fiji. They did manage to grab a little rest on Wednesday afternoon however; HELLO! can confirm that Meghan and Harry spent their final evening in Fiji at a private island.
