Prince Harry and Meghan Markle kicked off day one of their royal tour with a sweet gesture from their hosts—a baby gift!

The Duke and Duchess stepped out for their very first engagement during the tour, which was a formal welcome to Admiralty House, the government house where the couple are staying while in Sydney during their trip.

Meghan, who wore a cream-colored dress by Australian designer Karen Gee, was handed her very first baby gift from Peter Cosgrove, the Governor-General of Australia: a kangaroo with a joey and a pair of booties. Royal reporter Rebecca English shared the sweet video on Twitter. After Meghan is handed the kangaroo, she's heard saying "that's our first baby gift!" See the video and a photo here:



This marks the first time Harry and Meghan have been photographed since the pregnancy news was confirmed through Kensington Palace earlier today. The Palace released a tweet early this morning sharing the happy news, in addition to Meghan's approximate due date: they'll welcome their baby in the spring of 2019.

Harry and Meghan touched down in Sydney on Monday after a busy weekend, where they celebrated Princess Eugenie's royal wedding. The couple was photographed upon arrival at the airport at Sydney:


During their 16-day tour to Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, and the Kingdom of Tonga, Harry and Meghan have a 76 engagements total. They will also attend the opening and closing at the Invictus Games in Sydney. Today, it was revealed that Meghan's close friend and unofficial stylist, Jessica Mulroney, has joined the royal couple on the tour with her husband Ben.
