Prince Harry and Meghan Markle wore matching accessories on day 11 of their Australia tour, with both royals fully embracing the colourful traditions of Tonga! Any fan who's ever wondered what Harry looks like in a skirt can see photos of the Prince wearing the same Ta'ovala as his wife, which is a garland skirt given as a mark of respect to higher ranks in Tonga. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex seemed to enjoy their new look as they met local Tongan traders and craftsmen while the Masani group of singers and dancers performed island music and songs. Harry even appeared to do a little jig when the music started! The royal couple were also gifted with garland necklaces made from Fa and Puatonga flowers, which Meghan wore over her olive-and-white striped cotton dress by Australian designer Martin Grant.
