Britain's Meghan Markle Duchess of Sussex arrives at the Casablanca Airport in Casablanca Morocco

Britain's Prince Harry and his wife Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, have arrived in Morocco for an official trip scheduled to be their last worldwide journey before she gives birth to their first child.

Harry married the former Hollywood star Meghan Markle last May.

Like her sister-in-law Kate, Meghan has mastered the art of diplomatic dressing, paying tribute to the country's flag with her red Valentino dress upon arrival.

Mr Reilly said Morocco's promotion of women and girls, its inclusivity, and social entrepreneurship are "close to their royal highnesses" hearts'.

'They are particularly pleased that they will have the opportunity to meet so many young Moroccans over the next few days'.

No royal tour is complete without some sparkle and we've seen the duchess bring back her statement Birks Snowstorm earrings at the evening reception.

Colman's win meant Glenn Close has extended her losing streak. "I have to thank a lot of people", Colman said, crying. This is a developing post . "And this is not how I wanted this to be", she joked, to Close's delight.

Meanwhile, Meghan's date for the evening, Harry, suited up in classic navy separates.

The couple were greeted by the British Ambassador to Morocco Thomas Reilly and his wife Alix, and Prince Harry then inspected a Guard of Honour at the airport.

They are staying as guests of Morocco's King Mohammed VI at a royal residence. It's the same story we've been telling consistently at this embassy for the last 20 months since my arrival here.

Meghan has made women's empowerment a key part of her campaigning work and during the day she and Harry visited the NGO Education For All, which provides secondary education for girls from the remote Atlas mountains who would miss out due to cultural and economic reasons.

The heavily pregnant duchess had her left hand decorated by a student with a floral henna design when she visited Education For All's teaching centre in the Atlas mountains town of Asni.
