An eventful day for the Royal couple, however, no hugs got shared with a playful boy on this busy Tongan visit.


On October Meghan Markle and Prince Harry arrived at St George Building in Nuku’alofa, Tonga’s capital to meet with the Prime Minister and members of the cabinet.


Over 50 civil servants dressed in black and red shirts and traditional outfits met the royal couple as they slowly made their way inside the building.

One boy had been patiently waiting with other children and adults for Meghan and Prince Harry. Once he spotted Meghan he held up the sign he had made saying ‘free hugs,’ she noticed and smiled but did not take him up on his offer.

In joking fashion the boy fell to the ground ‘floored’ by her ‘rejection’ but quickly lifted his head from the floor and smiled as the royal couple went about their business of the day.


Once finished with their first official meeting with the Tongan prime minister and his cabinet they went to the Fa’onelua Convention Center and took a tour where they looked at various traditional handmade crafts.


The eleventh day of their tour was eventful as the royal couple went to the Tupou College after leaving the Convention Center. They were treated to a rendition of ‘The Lion Sleeps Tonight’ by they Tupou College Boys Choir.


Meghan and Harry then left for the airport after saying their goodbyes to King Tupou VI and Queen Nanasipau’u. They landed back in Sydney for the Australian Geographic awards where they got greeted with a big round of applause upon entering the ballroom at Sydney’s Shangri-La Hotel.


The Dutchess stunned in a black and white heavily embroidered, ballerina length, Oscar de la Renta tulle dress while Prince Harry opted for a blue suit. Ray Martin was the broadcaster for the night and gently reminded attendees not to take photos of the royals and said:

“Please don’t try and approach them, they’re not the Kardashians.”

The audience broke out in laughter and the night went on as awards got given to extraordinary people. The Royals did not just present awards but Prince Harry received on as well on behalf of his grandmother, the Queen by the Editor-In-Chief of Australian Geographic, Chrissie Goldrick for the Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy project.


Meghan Markle made her first inspiring speech during their visit to the University of the South Pacific in Suva, Fiji. She shared her own personal experience as a university student and spoke about her own challenges of being able to afford this level of schooling.

The Duchess announced that there would be two new grants available to support female staff in order to afford their tuition. Meghan is the second British Royal bride who has attended university, she earned a bachelor’s degree and double majored in theater and international relations at Northwestern University in Illinois on 2003.

In conclusion of her speech, she wished everyone the best of luck for a ‘positive future’ both for them and their communities.
