Meghan and Harry had a flight scare after leaving Tonga
The Qantas Boeing 737 plane was carrying more than 100 people, including Kensington Palace staff and members of the international media. Harry and Meghan were making their way back to Sydney after spending four days in Tonga and Fiji, before returning to Australia. No doubt the incident was a frightening one for the parents-to-be, though it’s confirmed that all is well and the plane landed safely in Sydney.
Earlier that day, the royal couple enjoyed a series of engagements during their final day in Tonga. Upon arrival, Harry and Meghan were met by more than 50 civil servants wearing red and black shirts and traditional outfits, as they entered the St George Government Building.
