Pregnant Duchess Meghan Markle beams in Sydney wearing Karen Gee dress

On her first morning in Australia the first question the world had for the Duchess of Sussex, formerly known as Meghan Markle was did she have morning sickness? The second: is it a girl or boy?

But neither of those questions were asked by the Invictus Games and government officials they met in Kirribilli.

The tight fitting cream dress by Australian designer Karen Gee worn by the Duchess barely revealed a royal bump at all.

The Sydney sun shone on their first public appearance 15 hours after the news broke of her pregnancy.

Prince Harry dressed in navy blue suit smiled proudly as the couple held hands on their tour through Admiralty House.

The news – announced on the day the royal couple arrived in Sydney – took many by surprise including Governor-General Sir Peter Cosgrove and Lady Cosgrove, who dispatched a staff member to hastily purchase a toy kangaroo with joey for their pregnant guest.

NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian, was the first government official to meet the pair, after they greeted Invictus Games flag bearers.
