Meghan Markle Gets First Baby Gifts as She Tours Australia With Prince Harry
Well-wishers have come out in force to greet Markle and the prince, some bearing gifts.
It seems like everyone’s caught royal baby fever!
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been showered with gifts and well-wishes as they begin their 16-day tour of Australia, New Zealand, Tonga and Fiji.
During one of their first engagements, the governor general gave them a stuffed kangaroo with its joey in its pouch, and a tiny pair of Uggs for their highly anticipated baby.
Markle is just three months pregnant, but her baby bump is already beginning to show through her figure-hugging sheath dress.
The frock, designed by Australian designer Karen Gee, is appropriately called the Blessed Dress and sells for about $1,800 – but that's if an admirer is lucky enough to get their hands on one. Gee's website crashed as fans scrambled to buy it. The dress is now sold out.
Markle also wore earrings that once belonged to the late Princess Diana.
Meanwhile, it appears Prince Harry is still having a hard time grappling with his new status as a father-to-be.
“We genuinely couldn’t think of a better place to announce the upcoming, uh, baby,” Harry said during a recent appearance, stumbling on his words.
Harry also had the opportunity to catch up with an old friend in the crowd, 98-year-old war widow Daphne Dunne, whom he proudly introduced to Markle.
"Hopefully the next time we see you, we'll have our little one with us," Markle told Dunne.
While Markle’s mother Doria Ragland is reportedly "very happy about this lovely news," her half-sister Samantha Markle warned that, "if [our father Thomas Markle] is excluded, I won’t be happy. It is in the best interests of the baby for my dad to be included."
