  • Breaking news: The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are expecting their first child

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced Meghan's pregnancy on Monday. "Thank you for the incredibly warm welcome and the chance to meet so many Aussies from all walks of life".

What are Meghan and Harry doing in Australia today? The two are on a 16-day tour of Australia, Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand that their Kensington Palace staff said would not be altered despite confirmation that the American former actress is pregnant.

Meghan Markle has given her late mother-in-law the ultimate nod this morning in Sydney, wearing the same butterfly earrings and bracelet previously worn by the Princess of Wales.

Meghan's mother Doria has spoken on her joy of the baby news.

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 later told The Telegraph, "It was lovely to meet the Duchess Meghan".

She added, "I congratulated them on their baby and said I wished them all the happiness they deserve". Meghan said, while Harry was handed a pair of Ugg boots, which he described as "awesome".

The trip, their first outside the United Kingdom and Ireland, will officially begin on Tuesday and will see the couple watch the Invictus Games, visit a Sydney zoo and visit the rural Flying Doctor service.

Sue said she considers the younger royals "very much" vital to the family's ongoing role in Australia and the world. "We're excited to join the club".

Some Australians may be anxious to ditch the country's royal connection, but you would not know it from the way the tour has been supported.

As it is now 11pm in Australia at the time of writing, Meghan and Harry will no doubt be relaxing ready for a second day of royal appearances.

Harry, 34, and Meghan, 37 - along with Prince William and his wife, Kate, the duchess of Cambridge - have stepped to the fore in the last year as the 92-year-old queen slightly reduces her public schedule.
