Pregnant Meghan Markle Is "Cutting Back" Her Appearances on Royal Tour

Following a whirlwind first week in Australia, Meghan Markle, who is expecting her first child with Prince Harry, is scaling back her schedule for the remainder of the couple's first royal tour.

“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,” says a royal aide, according to Hello!'s Emily Nash.

Meghan pacing herself isn't cause for alarm, though. "She's feeling fine, but resting," adds a source.

On Sunday morning, the Duchess of Sussex was supposed to join her husband to present medals at a cycling event for the Invictus Games, but Harry handled the event solo.

"Being pregnant takes its toll," he said of Meghan's unexpected absence, confirming that she was taking it easy at home.

While the mom-to-be missed out on this morning's occasion, she is set to appear alongside Harry for the rest of the day's programming. Rest up, Meghan!
