Prince Harry and Meghan touch down in Sydney for Invictus Games

Prince Harry and Meghan touch down in Sydney for Invictus Games”

"My warmest congratulations to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex on the happy news they are expecting a baby in the spring".

The Queen, Duke of Edinburgh, Prince of Wales, Duchess of Cornwall and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge personally congratulated the couple at Princess Eugenie's wedding on Friday, 12 October.

The two royals touched down in Sydney on Monday, kicking off a bumper Pacific tour that is their first major outing overseas as a couple.

Emerging from a media briefing at 6.45pm on the eve of the Royal Tour, I couldn't contain my excitement as I saw the statement from Kensington Palace confirming Meghan Markle is pregnant.

It was later at the Invictus Games that the couple first appeared hand-in-hand at a wheelchair tennis event, before being spied in a private box at the closing ceremony together with friend Jessica Mulroney.

The Duke and Duchess are beginning their official engagements in Sydney tomorrow, including meeting representatives for the Invictus Games and visiting Taronga Zoo.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex told the Royal Family about Meghan's pregnancy at Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank's wedding three days ago, it emerged today.

Hundreds of people gathered to catch a glimpse of the couple and cheered as their vehicle was driven into the property a short distance from the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge.

The baby will be seventh in line to the throne, and the Queen's eighth great-grandchild.

Meghan nailed "travel chic" with slim-fitting black trousers, a black top, and long black and burgundy coat.

Holly and her co-host read out well-wishes from fans of the pair and she couldn't help but speculate on how the child would be genetically blessed.

They will then spend a few days in Fiji and Tonga, before concluding the trip with four days in New Zealand.

Pickled food producer Opies, which is based in Sittingbourne, said: "Congrats to Harry and Meghan on the Royal baby news!"

Monday's announcement is welcome news in Britain, where Meghan has won many hearts since her engagement to Harry was announced last December.

PRINCE Harry and Meghan Markle have touched down in Sydney ahead of their long-awaited tour of Australia.

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