While Harry and Meghan's premier tour has caused a buzz of excitement in the international media, fears have been raised about the couple's desire to start a family as soon as possible.

a person wearing a suit and tie: Fears have been raised around the couple's planned route to Fiji and Tonga where outbreaks of the Zika virus have been reported © Provided by Associated Newspapers Limited Fears have been raised around the couple's planned route to Fiji and Tonga where outbreaks of the Zika virus have been reported The route taking in Fiji and the Kingdom of Tonga has been cited as a specific cause for concern due to the sudden outbreak of the Zika virus and debilitating Dengue fever on the islands. 

Zika is the primary concern due to the danger it can present to unborn babies, with pregnant women being advised to avoid all travel to areas where cases of the mosquito-borne virus have been reported.

The virus can cause microcephaly for children in the womb, causing babies to be born with abnormally small skulls.

Official advice from the Foreign Office states that 'couples should follow guidance on prevention of sexual transmission of Zika and avoid conception while travelling and for up to six months on return.'

These facts have led some sources to believe that Meghan may pull out of the trip if she were to fall pregnant before October.
