AceShowbiz - Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are having fun in Australia during their 16-day first royal tour. The royal couple, who is expecting their first child together, stepped out on Sunday, October 21 to attend an event in Sydney Harbor. During the outing, one particular American sailor, who was among the attendees, appeared to be extremely excited to meet the royals.
Not being able to contain his excitement, the man immediately jumped off his boat to give the 33-year-old British Prince the biggest bear hug. In a video shared by Kensington Palace on Twitter, the big man could be seen easily lifting the Duke of Sussex off the ground.
Meghan, who witnessed the intense embrace, giggled while she saw the events unfolded. "Now that's a [email protected] said the Duchess of Sussex, chuckling. "Nicely done." Later the man turned to Meghan who sat to the side of the boat. Fearing that the man would give his pregnant wife the similar intense hug, Harry quickly stepped in and asked him to be more gentle. "No, I know," the man said while laughing.
"Hugs all round from Team USA following the @InvictusSydney Elliot 7 Team final! #IG2018," Kensington Palace captioned the video. This year marks the first time the Invictus Games have included a sailing competition.
Harry and Meghan landed on Sydney last week and had been very busy since then. Meghan, however, skipped an appearance on the morning of October 21. Harry told the crowd that the former "Suits" actress, who is currently three months pregnant, was "resting" at home. The soon-to-be mom is also expected to skip the scheduled tour of Fraser Island on October 22.
Meghan and Harry announced the pregnancy news last week, five months after they tied the knot on May 19. Kensington Palace revealed in an official statement that Meghan is due next spring.
