AceShowbiz - Pregnant Meghan Markle and Prince Harry officially kicked off their tour in Australia on Tuesday, October 16. The royal couple started their tour by visiting Sydney Opera House where they were met with warm greetings from the locals who had been lining up in the midday sunshine to meet them. They were scheduled to watch a rehearsal by the Bangarra Dance Company before a public walkabout.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were photographed majestically walked down the 80 concrete steps as Premier Gladys Berekjiklian waited at the end of the stairs. Meghan paired her Karen Gee dress with a trench coat while making a tribute to Harry's late mother Diana by wearing jewelry that had been her mother-in-law's.
During the happy event, dad-to-be Harry was seen smiling ear-to-ear while greeting a baby boy, six-month old Rueben Henriques. The baby is so cute that the prince couldn't help but tweak his chubby cheeks. "What a beautiful baby," he said to the baby's parents Paul and Hayley Henriques who had been waiting for the royals for three hours.

Baby Rueben was not the only one that the expectant parents were keen to chat with. They went separately as Prince Harry went and talked to the families of veterans on the other side of the Boardwalk.
Prior to that, they went to Taronga Zoo, where Meghan met Koalas who are named after them. The former "Suits" actress looked happy to meet the furry Australian natives as she was snapped stroking them.
