Kensington Palace has revealed Doria Ragland is over the moon that daughter Meghan, 37, is expecting her first child with husband, Prince Harry.

The royal couple are embarking on a tour of Australia, Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand which begins tomorrow at the Sydney Opera House.

Kensington Palace said in a statement: "There is a long history of friendship between the royal family and Australia, Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand, and their links with the United Kingdom are extensive". Meghan wore a black coat, black sweater, black pants, and heels upon her arrival.

Their romance really is a royal fairytale.

The visit comes six months after Harry's father, Prince Charles, made his 16th official visit to Australia, primarily to open the 21st Commonwealth Games at Gold Coast city in Queensland.

The news of the couple's baby joy has already seen bookies open markets on the name of the new arrival.


Royal fans were sent into a frenzy following the Duchess of Sussex's pregnancy announcement. Markle once said that being a mother was on her "bucket list" and Prince Harry has stated that he would love to have children one day.

On March 2, while a guest on TODAY, Harry said that Meghan Markle would be pregnant with Prince Harry's child soon after their wedding, and that we'd hear about it in October.

They spent the day recovering from the flight and preparing for their first full day of engagements.

It's not known whether Thomas has met Harry in person yet; he said in an interview with ITV's Good Morning Britain in June their only contact to date had been via telephone calls.

Speculation that the Duchess might have been pregnant grew on Friday at the wedding of Princess Eugenie.

Kensington Palace has said that the Duchess of Sussex will still travel to Fiji and Tonga during their autumn tour even with the warnings still in effect for the Zika virus in those countries.
