KensingtonPalace
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will undertake an official visit to Australia, Fiji, the Kingdom of Tonga, and New Zealand in the Autumn


Fears for Meghan Markle after Zika virus outbreak in Fiji and Tonga - destination of first royal tour
Prince Harry and Meghan have made no secret of wanting to start a family soon - but Zika can cause complications for unborn babies


Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have made no secret of wanting to start a family as soon as possible - but a huge problem is on the horizon for the newlyweds.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are due to visit Australia, New Zealand and South Pacific islands on their first major overseas tour together in October.


However, it's specifically Harry and Meghan’s plans for the legs of the trip which take in Fiji and Tonga that are causing concern - as there has been a shock Zika virus and dengue fever outbreak on the islands.

Zika is especially of concern as it can cause complications for unborn babies - and now there are fears the tour could affect their plans to have a child.

Pregnant women are advised to avoid areas where mosquito-borne Zika is present, as the disease can cause microcephaly, a condition where babies are born with abnormally small heads.

Great news! I'll be going to take a look at them in Sydney or Melbourne.

Fiji and Tonga (the latter is less popular) has been a regular tourist spot for Australian families for decades. If the virus was that prevalent then Fiji's tourist industry would be stone dead.

What is the point of this tour? IMO it’s just a way for them to fit in a free holiday. Visit a few places, shake some hands, stay in lavish hotels, dine at banquets, go on ‘couple’s nights’ at retreats, a new designer wardrobe..all at the taxpayers’ expense, and for no other reason than to ensure good PR for the monarchy and make it still seem relevant. Not that Murkle is good PR.

^^ Murky must be like the third of fourth coming of diana right after that ridiculous and thoroughly vile Bogan in Danmark and her sister KM... damn these women are pitiful! One can tell they are not about anything at all because if they were they wouldn't try to be someone else. . eating cookies it must be scary (and exhausting ) for these women to live with themselves.  eating cookies

^Agree. Don't know that I would want my marriage/relationship to be the next C&D. They were a bad match from the start-I wouldn't want that comparison placed on my relationship. JMO.

the media will never stop trying to recreate those superstar days of the early 80's...those were the golden days of the brf, when Diana embodied what an ideal princess is, before social media was around to destroy their majesty, and they can never be recreated...we live in a different world, and have much less worthy material to work with.  sigh

No thanks. We’ve got enough with the current administration. Maybe Trudeau will do us a solid and take her off both of our hands.

That is something interesting about Harry's choice of wife. She's almost 37 and has been married before, yet no kids. Usually that means she doesn't want any kids. First marriage was at age 30, when a lot of women have their first child these days (not like she was 20 or something and didn't feel ready for that yet). Yet Harry has said before that he wants half a dozen kids. I would have thought he'd marry someone a few years younger than himself, not a few years older. Even if he doesn't end up with 6 kids, it's likely not going to be easy for Meghan to get pregnant. And I think they said that they don't plan to start a family right away. Meghan doesn't have time to lose, given her age. If she was in her late 20's waiting a few years would be fine. But late 30's... doesn't seem like a good idea.

But first they're off to Ireland... and America
The Sussexes are due to visit Ireland later in the summer as Meghan continues her induction into The Firm. Meghan will also get an opportunity to represent the Royal Family in the United States – a source says plans are in place for an official visit to cities on the east and west coasts. Last week Kensington Palace announced that Harry and Meghan will visit Australia in autumn 2019 for the Invictus Games in Sydney, before travelling on to Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand.

Uh, but the IG is this year.  huh  KP can't keep track of the lies they send out about these two.
