Meghan Markle looks like a Greek goddess in a floor-length white gown chosen for a reception
The Duke and Duchess arrived at Fua'amotu Airport on Thursday. They were welcomed by Her Royal Highness The Princess Angelika Latufuipeka.
Then they were off to Consular House in central Nuku'alofa for a private audience with His Majesty King Tupou VI and Queen Nanasipau-u. Meghan looked like a Greek goddess in a Theia gown.
The white bridal-inspired gown by Theia was floor-length with cap sleeves and beaded detailing on the shoulders. Duchess Meghan wore the dress with an heirloom she wore on her wedding day, an aquamarine ring that once belonged to Princess Diana.
She also wore her Aquazzura Deneuve heels and further accessorized with a clutch bag by Givenchy and earrings by Birks. The Duchess styled her hair in a bun.

The brand is done under Irish creative director Don O'Neill. The dress was fitting for Meghan as the brand held the same beliefs as the Duchess.
They shared that their aim was to make women feel confident and allow them to shine. The brand's website stated:
"Inspired by the Greek Goddess THEIA, this evening wear, bridal and day dress collection was created to bring out every woman's inner goddess.”
After their private meeting, the Duke and Duchess attended an outdoor reception and dinner on the grounds of Consular House in central Nuku'alofa. The band at the event played “Imagine” by John Lennon as the couple drove into the venue.
Guests were seated on circle tables with white tablecloths. Everything was set up under a large marquee for the evening's festivities.
At the reception, the Royal couple met many dignitaries. After dinner, Harry and Meghan will be treated to some traditional Tongan entertainment.
The couple's morning started off with them going to Nadi in Western Fiji. There they were welcomed with a colorful ceremony at the airport.
For this occasion, Meghan wore a forest green shift dress by Taiwanese Canadian fashion designer Jason Wu.
