Meghan Markle and Prince Harry announced they are expecting their first child together, just hours after they touched down in Sydney for their 16-day royal tour of Australia.

"And hopefully the next time we see you we'll have our little with one with us", the duchess added as Dunne sweetly stroked her hair.

Patting Harry's face affectionately she congratulated the couple on their exciting news.

Meghan, right, Duchess of Sussex, reacts as she and Prince Harry, left, receive gifts from Australia's Governor General Sir Peter Cosgrove in Sydney.

She turned and said to Harry, "Look at this, Archie drew this. they came straight over, they were very eager to chat".

The Duke of Sussex took advantage of opportunities to raise a smile during his first overseas tour with his wife, the Duchess of Sussex.

"I don't think he's changed very much", she told The Today Show this morning.

Australia's Governor-General presented the Duke and Duchess with their first baby gifts.

Meghan Markle honored late Princess Diana on Tuesday during her first public appearance since announcing her pregnancy.


"I'm so glad I got to meet you", Meghan told Daphne.

"We are both absolutely delighted to be here and really impressed to see you serving beer and tea at an afternoon reception, in true Aussie style".

Last year, Mrs Dunne once again caught the Prince's eye as he greeted fans in the pouring rain at Circular Quay.

The royal couple's visit comes six months after Harry's father, Prince Charles, made his 16th official visit to Australia, primarily to open the 21st Commonwealth Games at Gold Coast city in Queensland.

The designer - who is a Harvard Business graduate and mum of five - also says her brand is about empowering women, something she believes Meghan does.

After Australia, the couple will fly to Fiji, where they will be greeted with an arrival ceremony similar to one attended by the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh in 1953.

While at the zoo, William, Kate and George saw a bilby enclosure which contained a marsupial named after the youngest royal on the tour.

The tour coincides with the third Invictus Games, an worldwide sports competition Harry founded in 2014 for wounded veterans and members of the military, which kicks off Saturday.

"I wished them well with the baby on the way and said this is what Harry has been waiting for for so long".
