(COLOMBO, LANKAPUVATH) – The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have begun their first overseas tour as news of Meghan’s pregnancy made headlines across the globe.
The royal couple arrived in Sydney and were given the first of many gifts for their baby.
Australia’s Governor-General Sir Peter Cosgrove and his wife Lynne presented them with a toy kangaroo, complete with joey, as well as a little pair of Ugg boots.
The baby is due in the spring.
As well as Australia, the tour will see them visit New Zealand, Fiji and Tonga.
Speaking in Sydney, Prince Harry said: “Thank you for the incredibly warm welcome and the chance to meet so many Aussies from all walks of life.
“We also genuinely couldn’t think of a better place to announce the upcoming baby, boy or girl.”
The duke and duchess were greeted at Sydney’s Admiralty House by flag-bearing representatives from the 18 countries who will be competing at the Invictus Games.
Prince Harry is one of the founders of the competition for injured military personnel.
