Speaking at the State Dinner at the Grand Pacific Hotel last night, Prince Harry said he and his wife, the Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle, felt very lucky to be spending part of their 16-day tour as Fiji’s guests.

“All over the world Fiji is renowned for its incredible natural beauty and hospitality,” Prince Harry said.

“This visit is particularly nostalgic for us as a young married couple – my grandparents stayed in this very hotel, the Grand Pacific, a number of times over the years.

“It is a great pleasure for Meghan and me to be your guests here tonight on our first visit to Fiji.”

He said they were overwhelmed by the warm Fijian welcome they received from the people at Albert Park and also at the Nausori International Airport upon their arrival.

“It really is a privilege to be here. As you know, Fiji has a long tradition of welcoming royal visitors over the years and our two countries have enjoyed a close relationship and friendship,” he said.

“We share Commonwealth values and common goals – a love of rugby and a sense of humour! Our ties run deep.

“Your soldiers fought with the British Armed Forces during the First and Second World Wars and continue to serve alongside our soldiers to this day, with more than 1250 Fijians currently serving.”
