Meghan Markle is not letting her fear stop her from enjoying her life! As has learned, the pregnant Duchess will, indeed, visit Fiji with Prince Harry, despite the fact that the Zika-filled country could cause heath issues to their unborn child.

"The Duke and Duchess sought medical advice about the risk of the Zika virus on the islands of Fiji and Tonga and there will be no change to the planned schedule," Kensington Palace told the Daily Mirror in a statement.

The news comes after exclusively reported the pair was refusing to make changes in their 16-day tour following their pregnancy announcement.

Before the palace' statement, an insider told that Meghan, 37, and Harry, 34, would be "mad" to put their unborn child at risk, knowing he or she could suffer deformity due to the aggressive virus.

According to the outlet, however, Meghan's team will make sure to keep her out of rural areas, such as jungles, during her time in the countries.

As of now, the loved-up royals are in Australia and are set to travel to Fiji capital Suva and Tonga later this month
