Day one of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Aussie tour ended with a heartfelt speech from the Prince that included a comment about his future son/daughter.

The royal lovebirds were appearing at a reception hosted by Governor-General Sir Peter Cosgrove and his wife Lady Cosgrove at Sydney’s Admiralty House when Harry shared the speech, enthusing about his big day Down Under.

"We started off well today with some sleeping koalas, Sydney Harbour, the Bangarra Dancers, who were absolutely fantastic, the Opera House and Admiralty House, and we're looking forward to going to Dubbo tomorrow to meet those farmers and their families who have been hit by this drought."

Harry of course spruiked the forthcoming Invictus Games in Sydney, a multi-sport event he launched in 2014, that sees wounded, injured or sick armed services personnel and veterans from 17 countries compete in sports including wheelchair rugby and paralympic athletics.

“Australia is of course home to some of the world's best sporting talent but what you are about to see during these Invictus Games will quite literally astound you.

"A demonstration of the power of the human spirit, the power of sport to change lives, and the power of feeling part of all of this from the stands – there really is something for everyone.”

Then he dropped the sweet baby bomb.

"Thank you for the incredibly warm welcome and the chance to meet so many Aussies from all walks of life. And we also genuinely couldn't think of a better place to announce the upcoming baby, whether it's a boy or a girl, so thank you very very much."
