Ever since the Kensington Palace announced the news of Meghan Markle's pregnancy, the entire world seems to have shifted its focus from the newly married Princess Eugenie to the soon-to-be parents Harry and Meghan. And it seems the pressure of parenthood has already caught up with Prince Harry, who is reportedly an 'emotional wreck, but in a good way,' ever since the official announcement.

According to a source at Daily Mail, Prince Harry is "happier than he has ever been" ever since he discovered that the Duchess was pregnant.

"It is something he has wanted for a long time and he couldn’t be happier. He is so protective of her," the source added. The official announcement from the Palace came after the smiling couple landed in Australia ahead of their royal tour as well as this year's Invictus Games. 

As per reports, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are on a 16-day tour of Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and Tonga, and the duo decided to go ahead with the trip despite the Foreign Office's advice to pregnant women about the risk of the Zika virus.

As soon as the news of Meghan's pregnancy was made public, congratulatory messages came pouring in for the Duchess from all her family and friends, including her mother Doria Ragland (who was apparently the first one to know), and surprisingly, her father Thomas Markle. Meghan's father, on hearing the news of his daughter's pregnancy, is "delighted" and reportedly told her by letter: "You will make a great mother."

Yesterday, a Kensington Palace spokesman said the Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh, the Prince of Wales, the Duchess of Cornwall and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge had already congratulated the couple in person at Friday’s wedding. A friend added: "They didn’t make a grand announcement but had conversations with their family and friends and told them their news."

Meanwhile, the Duchess of Sussex is said to be in good health and need not cancel any public appearances because of her pregnancy, unlike Kate in the past, who unfortunately suffered from hyperemesis gravidarum, a severe form of pregnancy-related sickness.

Despite Meghan's condition, the couple's Australia tour is going to be extremely hectic, and their current schedule includes opening the Prince’s Invictus Games for injured service personnel in Sydney later this week. This after the duo flew into the city just yesterday and stayed at Admiralty House, the residence of the governor-general.
