Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced they're expecting their first child together on Monday.

Prince Harry and Meghan have always been forthcoming about their desire to start a family - in their first TV interview with the BBC after their engagement, there was talk of family making down the road.

But royal watchers had called the baby announcement days earlier, following the couple's appearance at Princess Eugenie's wedding on Friday.

Meghan wore a Givenchy coat dress to the wedding, with Twitter users noticing that Meghan didn't remove her coat throughout the service.

Today's news that the couple are expecting their first child came as they arrived in Sydney, ahead of a 16-day tour which will take in Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and Tonga.

In all seriousness, there had been media speculation for a number of weeks that Meghan might be pregnant, and the couple have made no secret of their desire to have children.

However, the queen could step in and issue a Letters Patent to elevate the baby's title to HRH and prince or princess, as she did for Prince William and Duchess Kate's children before Prince George's birth, MSN reported. So it's possible she could do a similar favour for Meghan and Harry.

But will Meghan and Harry pick a family names instead?

Kensington Palace announced the news on Monday morning.

Their child will be seventh in line to the throne.

In their engagement interview with BBC past year, Harry said that "Hopefully we'll start a family in the near future".

While in Australia the couple will watch the Invictus Games and visit Sydney's Taronga Zoo and the rural Flying Doctor service.

The prince and the former actress married in a glittering service in Windsor in May.

Royal etiquette expert William Hanson told Mashable that the royal baby's title all depends on the Queen's decision.
