This is far too much.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced that they were expecting their first child together, just days before their royal tour, with the newlyweds currently in New Zealand.

Since departing on tour, both Prince Harry and Meghan have spoken about their excitement at their new arrival, with the Duke of Sussex even mentioning their exciting news in his speech at the opening ceremony at the Invictus Games.

‘Thank you for the welcome you have given Meghan and I over the last few days,’ Prince Harry announced in his speech. ‘I have been so proud to be able to introduce my wife to you and we have been so happy to be able to celebrate the personal joy of our newest addition with you all.

Since then, the newlyweds have been melting the hearts of the nation with their excitement, with Meghan telling a local how excited the two are to ‘join the club’ and become parents, and Harry dropping hints that he’d love a girl, and even telling a fan called Harriet that he might use her name as inspiration for his future baby.

But our hearts well and truly melted when Prince Harry let slip a nickname that he has for the future royal baby - 'our little bump'.

'From myself and my wife and our little bump, we are so grateful to be here,' Harry announced to the New Zealand crowd, prompting laughs from the crowd and causing Meghan and Harry to beam.

These two!!
