Meghan Hangs Back on Fraser Island

Polka Dots

Yesterday, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex visited Fraser Island, the last stop on the Australian leg of their four-country tour. Following Saturday’s news that Meghan plans to scale back her engagements over the next couple of days due to exhaustion, Harry took the lion’s share of their schedule, but we did catch a glimpse or two of HRH.

The headline of this particular journey is the dedication of the site to the Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy – as such, there are fantastic images of Harry on Lake McKenzie and taking part in a Welcome to Country smoking ceremony in the forests of KÕgari, which it is a shame Meghan wasn’t a part of. Understandable, but still a shame.

Meghan, meanwhile, spent the day at the Kingfisher Bay Resort, where the couple are spending Monday night. She rallied enough to join Harry for a walkabout in the afternoon, at which point we got our best glimpse of Meghan for the day.

In the morning, Meghan was photographed arriving on Fraser Island in a burgundy polka-dot dress by Swedish label & Other Stories – perhaps better known as H&M’s sister brand. She paired it with flat sandals by Sarah Flint, a go-to shoe brand for her.


Later in the day, for the walkabout, she chose dress by Reformation, a popular sustainable label from the U.S. I always like items by Reformation, but they are a label in which nearly everything looks just a smidge skimpier than you were imagining – in this case the skirt’s side slit. She chose again her Sarah Flint sandals.

Meanwhile, Saturday night’s reception in Sydney remains a private event and few photos have emerged. Below is one for the good of the order – the dress has been identified as Jason Wu and her heels, which we’ve seen before, as Aquazzura.

Later today takes Harry and Meghan to Fiji, where they will carry out engagements until the 25th. As far we can tell, we will see Meghan with Harry throughout the day, but it’s possible she’ll be sitting out any activities that require more physical activity. So, with that, see you in a few 🙂
