Meghan was scheduled to attend the Invictus cycling medal presentation with Harry earlier in the day. "The Duke will attend the cycling as scheduled this morning, and the Duchess will join him for this afternoon's engagements," was all Kensington Palace told MailOnline.

A source told the publication that it wasn't that Meghan was feeling sick, they are just trying to "pace" her given how many engagements she has coming up.

The couple has only been in Australia for six days of their two-week trip, and has already attended a slew of engagements. Watch the video to see what they have been up to.
