The couple was presented with a koala toy for their new baby - a hastily arranged surprise for the couple after the news of their pregnancy yesterday.

Meghan wore a tight-fitting cream dress by Australian designer Karen Gee that barely revealed a royal bump as they were welcomed at an event Tuesday.

The medal belonged to Lieutenant Albert Chowne, who died aged 25 in 1945 - just a year after they married - in a heroic attack on a Japanese machinegun post in the New Guinea campaign.
