The couple were greeted by royal supporter Daphne Dunne, and talked about the newly announced pregnancy.
On Tuesday Harry managed to melt the crowds during his Sydney walkabout as he warmly hugged 98-year-old Sydney resident Daphne Dunne. The lady went out to meet the royal for the third time during their walkabout at the Sydney Opera House.
The Duke of Sussex managed to recognize the well-wisher and quickly walked over to greet her. He then even introduced her to his wife for the first time, telling her: “I’m going to get my wife to come here and say hello.”
Chatting to Daphne, Meghan said: “I’m so happy to finally meet you, I’ve heard so much about you.”
The pair spent a few minutes with her before telling her to enjoy the rest of her day, with Meghan adding: “Hopefully the next time we see you we’ll have our little one with us.”
Harry and Meghan announced that they were expecting their first child together on Monday, just one day ahead of their 16-day tour of Australia.
Kensington Palace released a statement that read: “Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Sussex is expecting a baby in the Spring of 2019.
Their Royal Highnesses have appreciated all of the support they have received from people around the world since their wedding in May and are delighted to be able to share this happy news with the public.”
Since the couple arrived in Australia, they have been bombarded with gifts for their baby. They received a pair of tiny Ugg boots and a kangaroo soft toy.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were also gifted a plush koala toy after they visited the Taronga zoo. Meghan promised the koala keeper, Suzie, that the gift will go “in the nursery”.
