It was an early start for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex on day 11 of the royal tour as the couple met with Tonga's Prime Minister and Cabinet Ministers at the nation's St George Government Building. The royals looked happy and relaxed after a much-needed rest following their jam-packed tour of Fiji. Meghan looked stunning as ever, dressed in a £1,062 green striped cotton dress by Martin Grant, which she teamed with green heels and a matching Prada clutch bag. The former actress, who is expecting her first child, was radiant in the elegant outfit and wore her brunette hair in a stylish ponytail, accessorising with her Maison Birks diamond earrings.

Meghan and Harry's official government meeting was a short 10 minutes before the royal couple visited a local exhibition of Tongan Handcrafts with Her Royal Highness, The Princess Angelika. The pair learnt about the Kingdom's traditional mats and 'tapa' cloth and met some Tongan traders and craftsmen.
