Inside the mansion’s sitting room, the couple immediately spied a large cuddly kangaroo sitting on the table with, appropriately, a Joey in its pouch.
They laughed as they saw it, Meghan exclaiming: "That’s so cute, our first baby gift!"
"There you are," said Sir Peter, as Harry leant forward to examine the Joey.
"And this is your second," the Governor-General continued, as his wife handed the prince a pair of tiny Ugg boots.
"Very Australian Ugg boots," said Lady Cosgrove.
"These are awesome," said Harry as he posed for the cameras holding them.
The couple were also handed a pair of traditional Australian wife-brimmed Australian Akubras hats as a belated wedding gift.
"When you go to Dubbo you’ll see some of these," said Sir Peter.
"Thank you so much," said Meghan.
The four then sat down for a half hour official meeting.
"Your Royal Highnesses, welcome to Australia," said Sir Peter, ‘may we on behalf of all Australians congratulate you both on the announcement that you are expecting a baby. We are delighted, it’s amazing, and I know that the people who are already excited to see you will just be enthralled by the fact of this wonderful news."
