Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex cheer on sailers on Sydney harbour during day two of the Invictus Games Sydney 2018 at Sydney Olympic Park in Sydney, Australia, October 21, 2018.

The Duchess, who is now cutting down on the number of Royal engagements at the tour because of her pregnancy, arrived at the beach in a breezy striped number, with a thigh-high slit.

On the 21st of October, Sunday, the Kensington Palace officials released a statement claiming, "the Duke and the Duchess have chose to cut back", on their schedule.

The Duke has proved incredibly vocal about his unborn child since the surprise announcement just last week, expressing his excitement for first-time fatherhood at his official engagement on this tour.
