Britain's Prince Harry, the Duke of Sussex, mentioned his impending fatherhood for the first time today, at a reception at Admiralty House, the Australian Governor-General's official residence.
The news of the pregnancy was announced after Prince Harry and his American wife Meghan arrived in Sydney on Monday.
"Thank you for the incredibly warm welcome and the chance to meet so many Aussies from all walks of life," the Duke of Sussex said.
"And we also genuinely couldn’t think of a better place to announce the upcoming baby – be it boy or a girl, so thank you very, very much."
The couple are on 16-day visit to Australia, Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand.
