Prince Harry is reportedly overwhelmed after finding out that he and wife Meghan Markle are expecting.

According to Charlotte Ikonen, a journalist for Daily Star, the Duke of Sussex is an "emotional wreck" over the thought that he will be a first-time dad but in a good way. Prince Harry has reportedly wanted this for a long time and couldn't be happier. The royal is very protective towards his expectant wife.

Meanwhile, body language expert Judi James said she thinks that the duke needs his mom Princess Diana's presence. Prince Harry is showing signs of being a protective dad and an excited kid at the same time.

"Men need their mums almost as much as women at a time like this and although Prince William had Kate's parents to go to for advice and wisdom, Meghan's mum Doria is currently still a long way away," James told Express.

"While Harry's body language signals lurched between protective alpha father-to-be and and bashful, excited kid, it was Meghan who was radiating a calm confidence, even rubbing Harry's arm as he chatted to their host in the signature gesture of loving reassurance she has used since their engagement."

James also pointed out how Prince Harry kept his eyes on his script during a speech when he said the word "baby." The royal seemed to struggle that the news is already public. He did a verbal hiccup and some "ah" fillers by glancing to Markle.

While Prince Harry is an "emotional wreck," his wife appears to be more confident, according to the expert.

"With no more need of camouflaging coats and strategically-placed clutch bags, Meghan posed upright and elegant with her hands lightly clasped in front of her torso," she added. "But with the news announced Meghan looks relieved and glowing while Harry still seems a bit unsure of himself."

According to reports, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will continue their official visit Fiji and Tonga even if both countries have both had Zika virus outbreaks. The virus are not safe for pregnant women as it can cause deformities to the fetus. But the couple reportedly sought medical advice for this.

"The Duke and Duchess sought medical advice about the risk of the Zika virus on the islands of Fiji and Tonga and there will be no change to the planned schedule," a senior royal source said.
