The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and his expecting wife Meghan met with Australian Governor General Sir Peter Cosgrove, his wife Lynne and New South Wales Premier Gladys Berejiklian in Sydney, Australia on October 15.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have begun their first overseas tour as news of Meghan's pregnancy made headlines across the globe.

Prince Harry and Meghan have only just announced their pregnancy but the new baby has already been given its first gift.

Several onlookers congratulated the couple on their baby news, with Meghan replying: 'Thank you so much.

Meghan and Harry, proud parents-to-be, are thought to have shared their news with the royal family including the Queen, Prince Phillip and Prince Charles at the royal wedding on Friday which would suggest there's some truth to the 12 weeks estimate.

The happy couple beamed as they stood against the backdrop of Sydney Harbour, with the Opera House behind them. In 1917, King George V (Prince Harry's great-great-grandfather) reduced the amount of titles within the royal family, although Queen Elizabeth II could make an exception and allow Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's children to receive HRH (His or Her Royal Highness) titles.

The couple were also handed a pair of traditional Australian wife-brimmed Australian Akubras hats as a belated wedding gift.

In a November 2017 interview with the BBC after their engagement, the couple said they wanted to have children in due time.

The duke and duchess's itinerary has not changed, despite pregnant women being advised against travelling to Fiji and Tonga because of the risk posed by the Zika virus.

Everyone's feeling the love for the latest royal baby.

The Kingdom Choir gospel singers who performed Stand By Me at Harry and Meghan's wedding sent their best wishes to "the lovely couple".

The couple's visit to Australia coincides with the Invictus Games, which start in Sydney on Saturday.

The sporting event founded by Harry in 2014 gives sick and injured military personnel and veterans the opportunity to compete in sports.

And Meghan's mom also said she's "very happy" about becoming a grandma.
