On Wednesday, October 24 the Duchess of Sussex travelled to a market in Fiji to meet with female vendors while her husband, Prince Harry, took a trip to a local forest.
But a security scare interrupted the soon-to-be-mom's plans, and she abruptly cut her visit to the market short. Concerns with crowd management are what startled the Duchess and her aids, so what was initially supposed to be a 20-minute visit was swiftly cut back to less than half that time.
A higher than anticipated excited crowd had gathered to greet the Royal, and naturally, were left devastated when the former 'Suits' actress was whisked away after a mere six minutes. Markle, who is pregnant and expecting her first child with Prince Harry in the spring of 2019, was seen whispering to her aid before being led back to her car.
The Royal couple is currently on a 16-day Oceania tour.
