Amazing moment Duke and Duchess of Sussex repeat Queen's moment in Fiji
Prince Harry, grandson of Elizabeth II of England, and his wife, the American former actress Meghan Markle, arrived in Fiji on Tuesday, October 23, where they received a massive reception.
After more than six weeks in Australia, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle arrived on Tuesday to begin a four-day visit to the Republic of Fiji and the Kingdom of Tonga as part of their tour of Oceania.
The dukes of Sussex were greeted by a strong wind that generated some inconvenience for the couple. However, this did not overshadow the great reception given by the more than 15,000 people who collapsed the streets in Albert Park, a town located in Suva, capital of Fiji.
After the respective welcoming ceremonies, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made an emblematic appearance on the balcony of the hotel where they are staying, the Grand Pacific Hotel, just as the Queen did for the first time in 1953 with her husband Prince Felipe, reported Express.

Visibly moved by the reaction of the audience that met to receive them, the Dukes of Sussex were very grateful and involved in the various activities they organized for them.
"This visit is particularly nostalgic for us as newlyweds: my grandparents stayed at this same hotel, the Grand Pacific, several times over the years and greeted people on the same balcony as we did."
The Kensington Palace confirmed on October 15, 2018, the suspicions that Prince Henry and Meghan Markle will be parents for the first time.
The couple will have their son in the spring of 2019, until then they will end the 4-day tour of the country on Friday to then head to Sydney and continue with activities in Oceania.
