Meghan, 37, and Harry, 34, attended a reception Sunday afternoon in Sydney hosted by Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison not long after Harry awarded medals at a road cycling even that morning in the Invictus Games, which is a focal point of their tour.
For the occasion Meghan dressed in a black turtleneck and black jeans with a white striped blazer from L’Agence and black Deneuve bow pumps from Aquazzura.
Though Meghan missed Sunday morning’s medal ceremony, Harry had it well handled solo — still finding time to chat with the competitors while awarding a gold to the U.K.’s Michael Swain (and helping him grab his fallen hat, which Swain had removed for the occasion).
Also in attendance at the afternoon reception, held at Pavilion Restaurant, were Invictus competitors and their family and friends as well as children from the Australian Kookaburra Kids Foundation, who got their own royal audience.
Earlier Sunday, sources said Meghan would be reducing her engagements and appearances for a few days as the end of the first week of her first royal tour approached.
“After a busy programme, The Duke and Duchess have decided to cut back The Duchess’s schedule slightly for the next couple of days, ahead of the final week and a half of the tour,” a source reportedly said.
Meghan is “feeling fine but resting,” one source said, according to Hello!‘s Emily Nash. The goal is “just trying to pace things for her,” according to a source.
Speaking with reporters after the morning’s road cycling medal ceremony, Harry confirmed his wife was “resting back at home.”
“Being pregnant takes its toll,” he said.
She seemed none the worse for wear at the reception, where photographers captured her, all smiles, with Harry.
