The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have begun their first overseas tour as news of Meghan’s pregnancy made headlines across the globe.

The royal couple arrived in Sydney and were given the first gifts for their unborn baby.

Australia’s Governor-General Sir Peter Cosgrove, and his wife Lynn, presented them with a toy kangaroo, complete with joey, as well as a little pair of Ugg boots.

The baby is due in the spring.

As well as Australia, the tour will see them visit New Zealand, Fiji and Tonga.

Prince Harry, of course, is one of the founders of the competition for injured military personnel.

Presented with the cuddly kangaroo, Meghan said: “Our first baby gift!” while Prince Harry described the boots as “awesome”.

The couple who married in May, were also given Akubras, traditional Australian hats.

The duke and duchess’s itinerary has not changed, despite pregnant women being advised against travelling to Fiji and Tonga because of the risk posed by the Zika virus.

Kensington Palace says medical advice has been taken.

The Queen and other senior royals were told about the pregnancy on Friday, when they gathered in Windsor for Princess Eugenie’s wedding.
