A 29-year-old Canadian tourist Braden Fraser from Toronto said that "it's wonderful".

New Yorker Christine Kearney, 59, was pleased as well.

The news comes as the pair touch down in Australia ahead of their first tour as a married couple.

Harry's father Charles is said to have forged a strong bond with Meghan, and walked her down the aisle through the Quire when her father pulled out of attending the wedding. "Wishing them all the best".

Harry and Meghan's child will not, however, be in immediate line to the throne. The couple shied away from inviting the country's politicians to focus on family and friends.

The baby is due in the British spring of 2019.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle arrive into Sydney Airport on British Airways.

The world woke up to the "fantastic" news after a statement was released from Kensington Palace.

The announcement of the pregnancy confirms weeks of speculation from royal watchers about why Meghan was not joining Harry on his Sydney Harbour Bridge climb set for Friday. Australia is thrilled for you both.

Woody Johnson, the U.S. ambassador to the United Kingdom, tweeted: "Happy news to wake up to on a Monday morning - congratulations to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex!".

The more than two week official visit will take in multiple stops in Australia, Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand - all parts of the Commonwealth of states formerly colonised by Britain.

The trip is their only global tour since the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were married in May, apart from a two-day visit to Ireland.

Holding hands and casually dressed, the prince and the former American actress walked out an airport rear entrance and into a vehicle.

They are now on a tour of Australia, Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand.

The couple's current tour coincides with the games, which start in Sydney on Saturday.

The sporting event founded by Prince Harry in 2014 gives sick and injured service personnel and veterans the opportunity to compete in sports such as wheelchair basketball and sitting volleyball.
