Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle, revealed earlier this month that they are expecting their first child.

Harry and pregnant Meghan, 37, are now in Fiji as part of an official Royal visit, with Meghan showcasing her baby bump in an elegant blue dress at a black tie reception on Tuesday.

Prince Harry, and Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex attend a lunchtime reception hosted by Prime Minister of Australia, in Sydney, Oct. 21, 2018.

Hundreds of spectators waved small plastic Fijian and British flags as Harry, wearing a grey suit with three medals, and Meghan, dressed in a cream long-sleeved dress and matching hat, stepped on to the tarmac outside the capital of Suva.

But on Tuesday evening, all eyes were on the royal couple as they attended a state dinner. "So do I", Harry enthusiastically responds.

A day after Kensington Palace announced Meghan's pregnancy, Harry told fans in Australia, "We also genuinely couldn't think of a better place to announce the upcoming baby...whether it's a boy or a girl".

Rainfall of between six and 12 inches are expected to drench western Jalisco, western Nayarit, and southern Sinaloa. Tropical storm warnings ranged from Playa Perula north to San Blas and from Mazatlan north to Bahia Tempehuaya.

But she surprised royal fans with a stylish appearance at the walkabout, and the 37-year-old will be returning to her normal tour schedule as the couple hit the tarmac and head to Fiji on October 23.

They are visiting on behalf of the Queen who first visited Fiji in 1953 with her husband Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.

'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'. The couple will then finish their tour with a four-day visit to New Zealand.

During his speech, Fiji's president, Jioji Konrote, paid tribute to Harry's late mother, Diana, Princess of Wales, saying he was sure she would be "proud of the man" the duke had become and that he had found happiness and love with Meghan.

Meghan and Harry will have carried out about 76 engagements across their 16-day tour by the time it ends.
