Hilarious video shows the moment Prince Harry 'tells off' royal fan for giving Meghan Markle flowers
Ever since their wedding back in May of this year, Meghan and Harry seem to have dominated the news in every which way possible. First, there was the whole drama involving Meghan Markle's sister, Samantha; then, the couple went ahead and broke the internet by getting an adorable dog; and, just yesterday, they announced that they were expecting a baby.
"Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Sussex is expecting a baby in the Spring of 2019," Kensington Palace posted on Instagram.
"Their Royal Highnesses have appreciated all of the support they have received from people around the world since their wedding in May and are delighted to be able to share this happy news with the public."
The news came as the royal couple embarked on their trip to Oceania, with the first stop on their visit being Australia. So, of course, when Harry and Meghan took a trip to Taronga Zoo yesterday, there were hundreds of people waiting to share their congratulations - many of them bringing gifts for the mother-to-be.
And, when Harry spotted one group of admirers with a particularly large bunch of flowers, he just had to say something.
In a video posted to Instagram, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex can be seen entering the wildlife park as dozens of fans flock to greet them. Meghan, very graciously, stops to accept some gifts from well-wishers; meanwhile, Harry watches in astonishment as one woman hands over a huge bouquet of flowers.
Clearly a little threatened by the present, the ever-playful prince joked to the crowd, "You can't give flowers that big to my wife, what is that all about?"
The former Suits star then came up behind her husband, expressing her gratitude for the gift. "Thank you for the flowers, whoever got those for me," she can be heard saying.
It turns out that the bouquet was from Matt De Groot, a newsreader for Fitzy & Wippa.
Of course, Harry's comments were all in jest, and the royal couple were obviously beaming from all the support they've received since the announcement that they are expecting their first child together.
While they've been travelling to the other side of the globe to meet and greet Australian fans, however, Brits back home have been speculating over the details of the soon-to-be royal heir. Will it be a boy or a girl? What will Meghan and Harry name the little one? Will they become a prince or a princess?
Well, with regards to that final point, we do have some answers.
It's already been established that the new arrival will be too far away in line to the throne (seventh, to be precise) to be named prince or princess - though that could change if the Queen decides to make an exception. If she doesn't, however, then the new baby might not inherit a title by default.
As royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams explained earlier this year: "Under the current system, any child of the Duke and Duchess won’t automatically have a royal title. The peerage, unlike the succession to the crown, favours males and if they have only daughters, the title of Sussex could die out as it did before."
We've still a long while to go until the new baby actually arrives, however, and so Meghan and Harry have plenty of time to enjoy their trip - and all the lavish gifts that will come with it!
