It may be early evening in the States, but over in Australia, it's already tomorrow morning, and Meghan Markle just stepped out for not only her first engagement of the royal tour, but also her first appearance following the announcement of her pregnancy.

For the official welcome at Admiralty House and her meeting with the Governor-General of Australia, Meghan chose a neutral look, pairing a cream-colored dress by Australian designer Karen Gee, paired with nude heels. See the full look in the video below. We'll continue to update with more photos as they become available:

Meghan is traveling with a hair stylist during the royal tour, and the Duchess's best friend and stylist Jessica Mulroney is also reportedly on this trip in an "unofficial" capacity. According to the Sunday Times, Mulroney's husband Ben also made on the journey to Australia.

Kensington Palace shared the happy news this morning that the Duchess of Sussex is expecting her first child with Prince Harry this morning via Twitter.

"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," reads a tweet released before the Duke and Duchess officially kicked off the official visit to Australia royal tour of Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, and Tonga.

"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."

While an exact due date has yet to be shared publicly, many are speculating that it's around April, given that Meghan has already had a 12-week scan.
