The Duke and Duchess of Sussex Prince Harry and Meghan Markle – are not changing their plans to visit Fiji and Tonga, despite the risk of the Zika virus.

Kensington Palace says the couple had sought medical advice on the mosquito-borne virus – which can cause deformities in babies born to infected women.

The couple announced they were expecting a baby when they landed in Sydney this week, at the start of their first official Pacific tour as a couple.

The World Health Organisation has advised against traveling to both countries while pregnant – although Fiji has had no confirmed cases of Zika this year.

However that has not deterred the royal couple from continuing with their visit.

The couple arrive in Fiji next Tuesday.
