At the end of day three of their royal tour, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex prepared to leave Melbourne as they were greeted by officials before stepping back onto the plane. As ever, Meghan looked stylish dressed in a classic Martin Lee trench coat and navy dress by Australian designer Dion Lee, but as well as a chic clutch bag in her hand, eagle eyed royal fans also noticed that she was holding onto her mobile phone too, as seen in a picture posted by Gorvernor of Victoria's Twitter account. No doubt Meghan was preparing to catch up with her family and friends during her journey, making most of the time she had before her busy schedule kicked off again.

It’s been an extra-special start to their royal tour for Harry and Meghan, who announced that they were expecting their first child together on Monday after landing in Australia. On Thursday, Meghan's choice of dress showed the first hint of her baby bump. Until then, she had been dressed in loose-fitting shirts and coats, but the navy dress showcased her neat bump beautifully. The couple’s baby is expected in spring 2019, however, it may be that Meghan is actually closer to four months pregnant than three – putting her due date closer to the end of March.

Harry and Meghan have been treated to many baby gifts from well-wishers during their trip so far, including a toy Kangaroo and some tiny Ugg boots. During their walkabout in Melbourne, they were treated to many thoughtful presents, including cuddly toys, flags, newspaper cuttings and handmade trinkets. Harry even revealed one of his favourite baby names while chatting to royal fan Jessica, who had bought along her five-and-a-half-month-old baby daughter Harriet to meet them. Jessica said: "As soon as I introduced my daughter to Harry he said, 'that’s a great name'. Maybe they will choose it for their own child which would be fun."
