Prince Harry and pregnant Meghan's emotional moment that left them in tears in public
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were moved to tears during an event in Fiji commemorating members of the armed forces who lost their lives in war for their country. See the video below.
After touring the magical island of Fiji for four days, Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle have had to adjust to a fairly tight schedule.

Together, the couple has experienced unforgettable moments with the people who cannot hide their delight at the royal visit.
Considering the short time allotted for that segment of their tour and the numerous activities packed in, anyone would be physically and emotionally spent. Harry and Meghan’s feelings flowed to the surface during the official opening of ANZAC Memorial in Hyde Park.
A particular song touched the Duke and Duchess deeply and provoked a touching reaction. Cameras captured the husband and wife dabbing at tears during the rendition, but Prince Harry appeared more moved than his wife.
THE PRINCE SHEDS A TEAR
Harry’s sensitive reaction is not unexpected because of all the time the Royal has spent serving with soldiers in the war. Harry has also always demonstrated a commitment to the wellbeing and encouragement of officers on the armed forces.
So, when the choir began to sing the hymn, “I vow to thee my country,” which also happens to be one of the late Princess Diana’s favorites, the royal couple could not help but shed a few tears.
The Duke and Duchess arrived on the island of Fiji on the eighth day of their South Pacific tour. They were first welcomed by a guard of honor at Nausori International Airport before heading to Albert Park where they met an overflowing crowd and were presented with a whale's tooth and the ceremonial drink: Kava.
ROYAL INSTAGRAM HUSBAND
Meanwhile, save for a few times when she chose to rest, pregnant Meghan has been glowing during their tour. After receiving their first baby gifts in Australia, Harry made the headlines with a cute Instagram photo of his wife.
Shared via their Kensington Palace social media page on November 1, the image showed Meghan surrounded by massive 117-year-old Redwood trees in New Zealand while cradling her growing baby bump.
In a heartwarming statement, Harry and Meghan expressed their appreciation to all the countries that welcomed them on their first ever tour as a couple.
“Thank you New Zealand for the most wonderful last week of our tour. It has been a privilege to meet so many friendly Kiwis.
Australia, Fiji, Tonga and NZ - we leave feeling inspired and reminded of how every single one of us can make a difference.”

They also included an inspiring quote from Kate Sheppard, a foremost member of the women’s suffrage movement in New Zealand:

Since announcing the news of Meghan’s pregnancy in October, the Royal couple has had their actions closely followed by the tabloids. Their unborn child, who will be Queen Elizabeth’s eighth great-grandchild, is expected to arrive in the spring of 2019.
