Earlier this morning, Kensington Palace announced the news that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are expecting their first baby in the Spring of 2019.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were married in May of this year and the couple have been busy attending royal engagements ever since.

While many couples would spend this time reading baby books and Googling baby names, Meghan and Harry will be embarking on their first official tour as a married couple, visiting Australia for the Invictus Games.

The happy baby news came just hours after the pair arrived in Sydney on a Qantas A380 flight from London via Singapore for their first major international tour since their wedding in May. 

Their two-week itinerary is set to be jam-packed – and also includes visits to New Zealand and Fiji.

Here’s a taster of what they’ll be seeing in Oz…

Sydney, New South Wales
The Invictus Games host city is full of great landmarks – the most recognisable being the Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge, which Harry will climb to raise the Invictus flag. He’s also set to visit Bondi Beach to meet a local surf group and discuss mental health.

Dubbo, New South Wales
Located in the Great Western Plains region, Dubbo is a five-hour drive northwest of Sydney. The city regularly hosts sporting, agriculture and social events and is home to almost 40,000 people. Attractions include the Taronga Western Plains Zoo, a chance to learn about the city’s Aboriginal culture on a tour of Terramungamine Reserve, and a tour of the city from the river by kayak or stand-up paddleboard.

Melbourne, Victoria
With world-class dining, art galleries, homegrown fashion and plenty of sporting events, it’s no surprise Melbourne is regularly voted as the world’s most liveable city. Harry and Meghan plan to travel on an iconic Melbourne tram to South Melbourne Beach.

Fraser Island, Queensland
The world’s largest sand island is a Unesco World Heritage Site, measuring 123km-long and 22km-wide. It’s the only place on the planet where tall rainforests grow on sand dunes at elevations of more than 200m and is also home to half the world’s perched lakes (lakes formed when depressions in dunes fill permanently with rainwater). Options for wildlife viewing include humpback whales and dingoes.

All in all, the royal couple will have a whopping 76 engagements in just 16 days which means that Meghan will need up to three outfit changes per day.

Luckily, it looks like her stylist - and best friend - Jessica Mulroney (pictured above) and will be joining her on the tour.

Now that she is no longer hiding the bump, we can't wait to see what maternity wear these fashionistas bring to the table.
