'For your baby': Young girl gifts Meghan Markle koala plush toy

"We're excited to join the club".

The Duke and Duchess will learn about environmental challenges while in Wellington, visit a charity which supports children with parents in prison, and meet members of the public in Auckland and Rotura.

Prince Harry introduced his favorite girl to his "favorite Aussie" during his first day of events in Sydney, Australia, with his pregnant wife, Meghan Markle.

"Here's your first gift for the nursery", the governor-general told the couple during a welcome ceremony at his official residence, Admiralty House.

It was the third time that they had met since Harry's eye caught sight of a Victoria Cross medal on her chest during a Sydney visit in 2015.

Kensington Palace announced that the couple were expecting yesterday, stating that the baby would be arriving in Spring 2019.

The pair also encountered other wildlife at the zoo on the shores of Sydney Harbour, with staff showing off wallabies, quokkas and a short-legged echidna, who seemed very taken by the royal guests.

They then spent a while in the sun, greeting crowds close to the Sydney Opera House spending time with royal fans.

War widow Mrs Dunne's first husband, Lieutenant Albert Chowne, died aged 25 in 1945 during an attack on a Japanese machine gun post in Papua New Guinea.

Daphne congratulated the couple of their big news and handed them a card.

Dunne later said Meghan told her "she had heard all about me; she's so handsome".

And just a few hours after their big news was revealed, Harry gave a speech in which he touched upon their baby's gender.

"You remind me so much of myself when I was younger. Harry is a wonderful man and I'm so happy he had found happiness, they both deserved the absolute world together".
