Prince Harry (34) and Duchess Meghan (37) arrived in Sydney yesterday, ready to start their tour of Australia and the South Pacific. The trip is their first official, overseas tour, although they did visit Ireland for a short two-day break earlier this year.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex landed Down Under for their sixteen-day tour after a brief stop-over in Singapore. The couple will be kept extremely busy with an amazing seventy-six scheduled engagements!
Their first few appearances in Australia will involve a trip to Sydney zoo to meet one very lucky koala there, a visit to the drought-stricken town of Dubbo and stopover at Fraser Island, the world's largest sand island. They will return to Sydney in time for the Invictus Games. The Invictus Games run from Oct. 20 through Oct 27. Despite news of Duchess Meghan's pregnancy spreading like wildfire, the tour will go ahead as planned and the Sussex's will also visit Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand.
Harry and Meghan arrived with an entourage of ten, which includes three communication staffers, two private secretaries, a hairdresser, an orderly, a personal assistant, a digital journalist and a personal assistant.
