The trip will also take the couple to New Zealand and the South Pacific islands of Tonga and Fiji.

On Monday evening, hours after the couple touched down at Sydney airport, Kensington Palace shared the news of Meghan's pregnancy.

The two are slated to watch the Invictus Games, visit the Tarong Zoo in Sydney and attend a rehearsal of the Bangarra Dance Theatre at the Sydney Opera House.

Harry and Meghan have been give a kangaroo and its Joey.

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison, who plans to climb with Harry to the top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge during the visit, told Parliament on Monday that he commended the prince for coming to Sydney for the Invictus Games and welcomed the couple.

"Wishing them all the best".

Auntie Lindy Lawler from the Illawarra was also among the crowd and wearing a badge which showed her meeting Prince Harry at the Opera House in 2015.

The couple was presented with a koala toy for their new baby - a hastily arranged surprise for the couple after the news of their pregnancy yesterday.


Harry is already a fond uncle to his brother Prince William's three children with Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, and godfather to the offspring of several of his friends.

VideoHarry and Meghan have met the Governor General and the NSW Premier to kick off the start of the first day of their royal tour down under.

Interestingly, it's hard to say if Baby Sussex baby will receive a royal title.

The couple who married in late May were seen holding hands as they stepped off the plane, with Megan pictured beaming.

It's amusing to think of a small child associated with a grand title like this; in any other context this name would sound pretty insane over-the-top, but this prestigious title is one of the subsidiary titles given to Harry from the Queen on the morning of his wedding. This baby, whether a boy or girl, will be seventh in line to the throne after dad Harry.

"How nice that they waited until after Fridays wedding so focus could be on Eugenie (although that gorgeous coat and dress gave it away so is that why it was announced today?)" one fan wrote.

The gifts were given to Meghan and Harry by Australian Governor-General Queen Sir Peter Cosgrove, Elizabeth II's official representative in Australia, and his wife, Lady Lynne Cosgrove.
