Harry's considerate gesture to Meghan during Fiji dinner

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced their pregnancy shortly after arriving in Australia for their tour of the South Pacific, and the couple's happy news has already prompted several adorable moments. 

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended a state dinner in Fiji earlier this week, where Harry reportedly toasted with water instead of champagne in solidarity with his pregnant wife.

Royal Commentator Omid Scobie tweeted from the event, "Meghan and Harry both toasting with water at tonight's reception (FIJI Water, natch)".

The Duchess showed off her growing baby bump at the event in a light blue cape dress, a nod to the island's national colour.

Fans praised Harry for supporting Meghan, who is due to give birth next year.

"So romantic, I love him even more now," one Twitter user said.

The royal couple did not alter their touring schedule of Fiji, despite the presence of Zika virus, which can be passed from a pregnant woman to her unborn child if contracted.

The International Association for Medical Assistance to Travellers advises that women avoid travelling to Fiji during their pregnancy.

However, Newshub's Melissa Davies reports that there's evidence of cautionary planning in the schedule, which sees Meghan avoid mosquito-heavy areas.

The royal couple's first official tour will see them touch down in New Zealand on October 28.
