The Duke and Duchess of Sussex started their tour Down Under with a bang! Following the exciting news about their pregnancy, released by Kensington Palace on Oct. 15, the two headed out on their first official engagement of the trip, starting off with an official welcome at Sydney's Admiralty House to meet with Governor-General Sir Peter Cosgrove and his wife, Lady Lynne Cosgrove – and the future parents were more loved-up than ever!

Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan arrived together at the House, and quickly found their way to each other's side, clasping hands as they walked across the lawn for group photos. While organizing themselves in front of the stunning backdrop, Meghan was spotted touching Harry's back and helping him into position. Time and time again, these two show off their natural chemistry, further cementing what a lovely couple they make – and what loving parents they'll be come the spring 2019!

As usual, they were the pictures of stylish royalty, too, with Meghan slipping into a simple yet chic white sleeveless dress by Australian designer Karen Gee paired with nude suede Stuart Weitzman 'Legend' pumps and Princess Diana's gold butterfly earrings and a gold bracelet. Future father Harry looked dapper as ever in a simple navy-blue suit for the occasion. And, of course, the two accessorized best with their megawatt smiles while posing in front of the iconic Sydney Opera House on the Admiralty House lawn. Meghan was heard gushing over her new pregnancy after being congratulated by multiple people, saying: "Thank you so much. We are very excited."
