The Duke and Duchess of Sussex met yesterday with Tonga’s Prime Minister, ʻAkilisi Pōhiva. The meeting came in the midst of the couple’s one full day in Tonga before returning to Sydney.

Notably, Meghan chose a striped day dress by Martin Grant, who has quickly become the designer featured most prominently this tour. It leads me to think we’ll see more pieces back in the UK, and Martin Grant may well become to Meghan what Erdem is to the Duchess of Cambridge – a designer debuted during her own first tour abroad back in 2011, and which has become a wardrobe staple over the years.

Back to engagements – the couple continued to receive quite the welcome over the course of the morning and afternoon. Quick video shared by Kensington Palace below:

They also watched a solo dance performance known as a Ta’ulunga at the Fa’omelua Convention Centre for an event highlighting the country’s youth. Given Harry’s role as the Commonwealth Youth Ambassador, you could say the event was clearly “on-brand” if you will.

Outside, the two mingled with guests and toured an exhibition of handmade Tongan craftwork.

A final engagement in Tonga constituted a costume change, so on to the next!
