Whatever the reason, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry couldn’t keep their hands off each other during their recent royal tour of Australia, Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand, and we have the pics to prove it. Here, the sweet, PDA-filled moments you may have missed from the expecting parents during the jam-packed 16-day getaway.
