Pregnant Meghan Markle misses morning engagement in Sydney

Meghan Markle Prince Harry Harry and Meghan join Australia PM at war memorial unveiling in Sydney

Meghan pulled out of an arranged meeting with Invictus Games competitors to rest after Saturday's ceremony overran by almost two hours, leaving the duke to present the medals alone on Sunday morning.

The Sussexes are now part-way through a gruelling 16-day tour of Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and Tonga, with 76 events on their schedule.

Britain's Prince Harry today opened the Olympic-style Invictus Games for disabled and wounded soldiers at a moving ceremony on the forecourt of Sydney's Opera House, after an intense thunderstorm forced an hour-long delay.

She said: "I would hope that - for the sake of the baby, the family, the world and my dad - that leaving him out of the statement was not intentional".

In the letter Samantha Markle conceded the family had said some acrimonious things "clumsily" but added she thought Meghan was "gracious and compassionate enough to do the right thing". And we can't wait to see what else we learn about the new Duchess and her past.

The button-front midi was originally worn in white by Harry's ex last month, as she attended a polo match.

Prince Harry lovingly rubbed his wife's back as they moved through the crowd.

Rockets' Carmelo Anthony: Coming Off The Bench "Challenging Mentally"
The Rockets had no answer for him (or anyone else on the Pelicans for that matter). "That is another strength of our team. Can Anthony Davis stay healthy and lead them to the postseason? The lead stayed at double-digits the rest of the way.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will not seek any official royal role for their first child. We made a promise when I was at Toronto - I said if I get the Canadian flag will you get yours?

The former "Suits" starlet and Prince Harry were on hand to mark Fluoro Friday, a mental health awareness event, as part of their Australian tour.

Later, Harry actually donned a pair of trunks - but over his jeans.

"He asked us if we would do their laundry - just joking", Lucas said. And he put them on, over his jeans.

Harry, who wore khaki pants and blue shirt, and Meghan, in an ankle-length striped dress, had kicked off their shoes to sit with members of community group OneWave, whose members wore brightly-colored shirts and flower garlands.

Among their new friends was Angel the special needs dog and the children from the Kookaburra Kids Foundation, who gave the couple two stuffed kookaburra toys for their baby.
