Meghan and Harry 'very pleased' to be expecting first child

Confirmed! Prince Harry, Meghan Markle are expecting first child

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced they're expecting their first child together on Monday.

The Daily Express focused on how the couple delivered the news to The Queen as The Daily Mail instead simply proclaimed, "Oh, Baby".

Britain's Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, right, and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, left, leave after the royal wedding ceremony of Princess Eugenie of York and Jack Brooksbank at St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle, in Windsor, Britain, Oct. 12, 2018.

Harry and Meghan married in May, becoming the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

Meghan made her name in acting as savvy paralegal Rachel Zane in the USA television legal drama "Suits", a world far removed from Buckingham Palace. They also signed the Visitor's Book.

The couple had a meeting with the Governor-General Sir Peter Cosgrove and his wife Lynn, Lady Cosgrove during their first engagement of the day. With Meghan's darker features mixed with Harry's lighter ones, Joe predicts that a baby girl would have dark hair and brown eyes, while a boy would have lighter brown hair and blue eyes.

Meghan's mom, Doria Ragland, said through a Kensington Palace statement that she was "very happy at this lovely news and is looking forward to welcoming her first grandchild".

The trip is their only global tour since the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were married in May, apart from a two-day visit to Ireland.

"Thank you, that's so sweet", the duchess said on receiving the toy.

The royal baby would be seventh in line for the British throne - but he or she won't automatically be a prince or princess. As a result, they were forced to share the news a few weeks early.

The royals were bombarded with congratulatory messages on Twitter after the Palace broke the news on Monday morning.

The games were founded by Prince Harry are an global paralympic-style event for military personnel wounded in action.

The royal couple will attend 76 engagements and activities between October 16 and October 31, with a focus on youth leadership, environmental and conservation efforts.

The couple, who will spend a total of 16 days in Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and Tonga, were presented with a belated wedding gift on behalf of Australia: Akubra hats.
