Just hours after they announced they are expecting their first child in Spring next year, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle reappeared on day one of their royal tour of Australia. The parents-to-be looked happy as they received a welcome to Admiralty House by His Excellency General the Honourable Sir Peter Cosgrove, Governor-General of the Commonwealth of Australia and Her Excellency Lady Cosgrove.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who is thought to be over 12 weeks pregnant, received their first (ADORABLE) baby gifts before meeting representatives from each of the 18 Invictus Games countries. They also signed the Visitor’s Book.
The couple, who will be staying in Admiralty House for the next week, made the announcement on Monday morning (UK time). Kensington Palace released a statement that read: “Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Sussex is expecting a baby in the Spring of 2019. Their Royal Highnesses have appreciated all of the support they have received from people around the world since their wedding in May and are delighted to be able to share this happy news with the public.”
The couple received their first baby gift during their morning engagement. They were given a toy kangaroo and its Joey: “Our first baby gift!” said an excited Meghan.
Prince Harry was given a tiny pair of Ugg boots. “These are awesome,” he said.
The dignitaries also presented Harry and Meghan with the Akubras – traditional wide-brimmed Australian hats – gifted to them on the occasion of their wedding in May.
The Duke and Duchess joined in on an official group photograph. Several congratulated the couple on their happy news, “Thank you so much,” said Meghan. “We are very excited.”

Meghan is quite the communicator through her choice of outfits. On Tuesday (local time) she wore the ‘Blessed’ dress by Australian designer Karen Gee. For her first appearance with Prince Harry at the Invictus Games last year she wore the “Husband” shirt!
