Duchess of Sussex's gruelling schedule takes its toll

During his speech at the Invictus Games' opening ceremony in Sydney, Australia, over the weekend, Harry thanked the locals.

In an interview with the Daily Mail, the 74-year-old said the news of Meghan's pregnancy has filled him with love and joy.

Prince Harry has revealed that he hopes his wife, Meghan Markle, has a baby girl.

Created by Prince Harry, the games have been held annually since 2014.

Anthony Carroll added, "It was wonderful, they're such handsome, down-to-earth people".

As their tour of Australia began, the Duke and Duchess received their first baby gifts, and not surprisingly, they looked delighted as the Duke was given baby sized Ugg boots and the Duchess was handed a stuffed kangaroo with a joey.

The prince has appeared thrilled to have wife Meghan Markle by his side as the couple tour Australia as part of their first official overseas trip as a married couple.

The Duke responded: "So do I!" "Meghan loves children and she and Harry have been talking about wanting a family from the start", he said.

Meghan, 37, has cut back slightly on her tour schedule following last week's announcement that she's pregnant with the couple's first child.

They arrived in Sydney as news of Meghan's pregnancy made headlines across the globe.

She said: "We told [Meghan] about the party we threw on the night of her and Harry's wedding and she thought it was nice".

But she surprised royal fans with a stylish appearance at the walkabout, and the 37-year-old will be returning to her normal tour schedule as the couple hit the tarmac and head to Fiji on October 23.

Her choice of burgundy frock today was a rare example of a cross-over between her and the Duchess of Cambridge, who have quite different royal styles.

The 34-year-old royal shared his excitement at becoming a dad when a wellwisher yelled "Congratulations, I hope it's a girl" during a cycle race in Sydney yesterday.

Clarke later told news.com.au: "I don't know what's gonna come out of my mouth".
