                            Meghan Markle reveals first real hint of blossoming baby bump on Day 3 of Australia tour

Meghan Markle, who is on her royal tour of Australia along with Prince Harry, donned a tight navy blue dress by Australian designer Dion Lee on Thursday, the third day of the royal couple's tour. And in the magnificent dress, Meghan's baby bump was on full display for everyone to see.

The Duchess of Sussex, during day three of the tour, participated in a series of demonstrations with Australian-based charities throughout the day, including the 'This Girl Can' programme that essentially aims to get women engaged in sports, as reported by Express.

It was on Monday that the Kensington Palace announced the Duchess of Sussex was pregnant and thanked the public for the support they had shown Meghan since the Royal wedding in May. In their official statement, they said, "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."

"Their Royal Highnesses very much appreciate 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 their happy news." The statement also acknowledged Meghan's mother's excitement over the news, saying: "Doria Ragland is very happy about the lovely news and she looks forward to welcoming her first grandchild."

On her third day of the tour, the Duchess was also spotted getting involved with a hands-on demonstration led by ambassadors of the 'This Girl Can' programme on the grounds of Government House. For the demo, Meghan decided to ditch her camel trench coat and throw an American football between other participants.

Meghan also revealed her adorable baby bump while racing electric cars along with students from Trinity Grammar School, who were part of the F1 in Schools team. In a light-hearted moment, she shrieked and bent over in laughter when she was startled while racing the toy car against Prince Harry, as she wasn't informed of the loud noise made by the cars when they took off.

Organizers for the events, who had been priorly intimidated about Meghan's condition, were cautious to protect the Duchess, who is still in the early stages of her pregnancy. Meghan was also warned against eating certain food items during her visit to the Charcoal Lane Restaurant, a place that helps assist young indigenous Australians into employment.

Referring to the Duchess' pregnancy, executive chef Greg Hampton said: "I would hesitate to offer her the pepper because they are quite hot. The first time I tasted one I thought I was having an allergic reaction because the heat creeps up on you. I don’t want to freak her out."
