Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are expecting their first child together — but its not all rainbows and butterflies for the happy couple. As RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are risking baby deformity by visiting Fiji!
Fans know Meghan, 37, and Harry, 34, have plans to visit Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and Tonga this month on a 16-day tour. But aides say she may refuse to go to Fiji due to the presence of the airborne Zika virus, which can cause unborn born babies’ heads to shrink.

Zika has also been connected to the neurological condition Guillain-Barré syndrome, which can cause paralysis. It has also been linked to the microcephaly birth defect in babies, which causes children to be born with abnormally small heads.
The love birds are due to land in Fiji on October 23, but a palace insider said Meghan would be “mad” to go and expose her unborn child to disease.
“It’s highly likely the Fiji leg of the tour will be axed as Meghan and Harry will be getting the best medical advice available,” added the source. “Official government advice is for pregnant women to stay away from Fiji, so Meghan’s medical team will be telling her to stay away.”
