Meghan Markle has made her first official appearance since announcing her pregnancy yesterday morning. Joined by husband Prince Harry, the mom-to-be stepped out for an official welcome at the Admiralty House in Sydney, the official residence of Australia’s Governor-General, Sir Peter Cosgrove and his wife.
Markle wore a sleeveless white sheath dress by Australian designer Karen Gee with nude pumps. As usual, the brand’s website has already crashed, according to royal reporters. She wore her hair in her go-to loose curls.
This marks the tipoff of Harry and Meghan’s royal tour of Australia, New Zealand, Tonga, and Fiji. For the next two weeks, they’ll be traveling across the four countries and attending an estimated 76 total engagements, most of which promote the Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy, the sovereign’s global conservation project.
Harry and Meghan arrived to Australia over the weekend, after flying a 22-hour commercial flight. They flew out from London, skipping the second day of Princess Eugenie’s wedding festivities to make time for travel.
The couple made their first appearance in Sydney 2 days ago, before the baby news broke, with Meghan dressed casually in a coat, black sweater, and pants, while strategically holding a stack of binders over her stomach.
The Duke and Duchess later made a subtle appearance after the baby news broke, as they were photographed taking stroll together in the gardens of the Admiralty House, where they’re residing for most of their stay in Australia. The parents-to-be were seen holding hands while enjoying a romantic walk.
