Meghan Markle has just debuted the first signs of her baby bump for the first time in public

When Meghan wore a coat to Princess Eugenie's wedding and kept it on the entire time, people became unhinged with speculation that she might have been pregnant. Turns out, they were right on the money! Yesterday, Kensington Palace announced that there was soon-to-be a new royal baby in town (watch out, George, Charlotte and Louis).

The happy news means that the former American TV star no longer has to shield her stomach with baggy coats. Now, she's free to flaunt her (very, very tiny) baby bump to the world, and that's exactly what the Duchess of Sussex did when she wore a beautiful white dress by Australian designer Karen Gee in Sydney, Australia, as her and Harry kicked off their royal tour.

Hours after the happy news was released, Meghan and Harry hit Sydney to enjoy the sights

The royal couple received their very first gift when Australian Governor-General Sir Peter Cosgrove and Lady Cosgrove gave them a toy kangaroo for little baby Sussex. Presented with the cuddly kangaroo, Meghan said: "Our first baby gift!" while Prince Harry described the boots as "awesome"

Speaking in Sydney, Prince Harry said: "Thank you for the incredibly warm welcome and the chance to meet so many Ozzies from all walks of life. "We also genuinely couldn't think of a better place to announce the upcoming baby, boy or girl."

Later on, the former Suits star and her ginger husband visited Sydney's Taronga Zoo. The pair were introduced to two joeys named after them to mark their marriage. The question is, will there be a third joey next year?
