The father-to-be also gushed about the couple's exciting baby news, which was announced hours after he and wife Meghan Markle landed in Australia earlier in the week.

Speaking at the Games, Harry, said: "if we're being honest, we know that, in many nations, the place of our men and women in uniform became too often undervalued in the decades after the Second World War".

While the Duchess of Sussex is now a working royal, alongside her husband, Prince Harry, the former actress has had a few different jobs in her life.

Pregnant Meghan Markle has pulled out of her first engagement of the day in Sydney to rest, leaving Prince Harry to present medals to winning cyclists alone.

"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 edition with you all", Harry said to huge applause.

The Duchess of Sussex has reportedly had her schedule cut back following a "busy programme".
