A glowing Duchess of Sussex makes first appearance since baby news

In a whirlwind half-a-day from announcing that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are expecting their first child the couple have made their first appearance on the grounds of Admiralty House.

The skies cleared in time for a glowing Duchess of Sussex and a very proud looking Prince Harry to receive an official welcome to Admiralty House by His Excellency General the Honourable Sir Peter Cosgrove, Governor-General of Australia and Her Excellency Lady Cosgrove.

Meghan was dressed in a cream dress by Australian designer Karen Gee.

Representatives each of the 18 countries competing at the Invictus Games were also there. The Duke and Duchess spent time greeting each one and receiving well-wishes for their little bundle of joy on the way.

The couple posed with all the representatives and their flags before an official call with the Governor-General and Lady Cosgrove.

From Admiralty House, the Duke and Duchess will conduct a busy morning including the opening of the Taronga Institute of Science and Learning where they will see koalas and joeys. From there they will take a short boat trip across the harbour to the Man O’War Steps.

They will take in a rehearsal from the Bangarra Dance Company, an internationally acclaimed Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander dance troupe.

But perhaps the engagement of the day that most locals are looking forward to is the walkabout at the Sydney Opera. This will be the first time Harry and Meghan will get the chance to interact with public on their 16-day tour but not the last as many walkabouts have been included in the schedule.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced they are expecting they are expecting their first child in Spring 2019. As she has just passed her 12-week, she could be due towards the last half of April 2019. However, as we all know, babies have a mind of their own and nothing is ever set in stone.
