EN Showbiz Mum-to-be Meghan Markle paid tribute to husband Prince Harry’s late mother Princess Diana by wearing a pair of her earrings as the couple stepped out in Australia on Monday (15Oct18).
The Duchess of Sussex, who announced her pregnancy earlier in the day, looked stunning in a fitted white dress by Australian designer Karen Gee, with just the tiniest hint of a baby bump visible, as she and Harry were photographed on their royal tour around Sydney. Complementing her ensemble, Meghan sported a dainty pair of butterfly earrings, previously worn by Diana during a trip to Canada in 1986, and a gold bracelet which Diana donned while visiting the Lord Gage Centre for Old People in London in 1990.
It’s not the first time Meghan has honoured Diana she previously wore the late royal’s aquamarine ring for her and Harry’s wedding reception back in May.
Meghan and Harry failed to hide their delight over the baby news as they enjoyed the sights of Sydney on Monday, visiting Taronga Zoo and the Sydney Opera House, where they watched a rehearsal by modern dance company Bangarra Dance Theatre.
They began their day at Admiralty House, where Sir Peter Cosgrove, the Governor-General of Australia, gifted Meghan and Harry with a stuffed kangaroo toy and a pair of baby Ugg boots, with the former Suits star exclaiming: “This is our first baby gift!”
As the day progressed, however, the parents-to-be received a host of baby gifts from excited well wishers.
Meghan and Harry announced on Monday that they are expecting their first child, with a spokesperson for Kensington Palace saying in a statement: “Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Sussex is expecting a baby in the Spring of 2019.
“Their Royal Highnesses have appreciated all of the support they have received from people around the world since their wedding in May and are delighted to be able to share this happy news with the public.”
