Dressed in white, Duchess Meghan looked stunning as she went to a special reception at the Royal Palace in Tonga. As Harry and Meghan were hosted by His Majesty King Tupou VI and Queen Nanasipau-u, they both wore black and white outfits that looked classy and elegant as ever before!
There was one little detail that seemed odd in the overall picture: Meghan’s arms looked extremely shiny, some would say wet, if taken a closer look. That weird shine came from anti-mosquito cream that the duchess used to protect herself from the dangerous Tonga insects.
As a future mom, she must be extra concerned for her well-being since it also affects the baby’s health. That’s why the insect repellent was a must-wear on her royal tour.
Anyone living and traveling to the regions of Fiji and Tonga is at a risk of getting the Zika virus, which is especially dangerous for pregnant women. It can be transferred to the fetus and cause a birth defect called microcephaly and, other severe brain defects. The virus is carried by infected mosquitos and, unfortunately, there is no vaccine for its prevention or cure.
With this being said, Meghan Markle was doing the right thing by taking care of her health! It should be of a paramount importance for a mother-to-be!
