Meghan Markle will miss out on this pregnancy tradition as a royal

The Duke and Duchess will learn about environmental challenges while in Wellington, visit a charity which supports children with parents in prison, and meet members of the public in Auckland and Rotura.

"Thank you for the incredibly warm welcome and the chance to meet so many Aussies from all walks of life", Prince Harry said at an official reception.

Meghan said the koalas were "so, so sweet", while Harry reached to pet one of the animals and asked about their diet and sleeping habits.

Crowds of well-wishers, and even koalas, greeted the pair, but as CBS News correspondent Jonathan Vigliotti reports, there are some Australians who question whether the British monarchy should still have power over their country. Meghan excitedly came over, with her arms wide to embrace Daphne. She explained that her first husband Albert Chowne had been given the highest award in the British honors system after he died in Papua New Guinea in 1945.

Meghan's mother Doria has spoken on her joy of the baby news.

Before Megan donned her coat, her tight-fitting dress barely revealed a bump as they were welcomed at the first event of the day at the Sydney Harbor-side mansion where the two are staying.

Also during the day, the couple were greeted at Admiralty House by flag-bearing representatives from the 18 countries who will be competing at the Invictus Games in Sydney.

"You remind me so much of myself when I was younger. We are very excited".

Interest was at a fever pitch by the time they descended the steps of the iconic Sydney Opera House. The Telegraph reported that Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Philip, Prince Charles, Camilla Bowles, Kate Middleton, and Prince William are all "delighted" for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, according to a palace spokesman. The royal couple married in May.
