CELEBRITY British royal family

Meghan Markle has delivered timeless looks and structured silhouettes throughout her royal tour with Prince Harry, and critics around the world have deemed it 15-days of fashion success. (minus the one non-label removal moment, which we'll ignore). 

However, when the Duchess of Sussex arrived in the Tonga forest with her sleeves rolled up, she was being criticized for something far more dangerous than designer labels—Zika virus.

The Zika virus is primarily transmitted through mosquito bites and is especially dangerous for pregnant women. If infected, the virus can cause microcephaly and other severe fetal brain defects. Plus, there are currently no vaccines that cure or prevent the Zika virus.

Though the royal's couple visit in Tonga was brief, fans of Meghan Markle and online commentators were in shock about her lack of protection. The locals, however, did make sure to serenade the Duchess with a traditional anti-mosquito song.
