Prince Harry & Meghan Markle Arrive in Sydney for Royal Tour!

Prince Harry & Meghan Markle Arrive in Sydney for Royal Tour!

The trip, their first outside the United Kingdom and Ireland, will officially begin on Tuesday and will see the couple watch the Invictus Games, visit a Sydney zoo and visit the rural Flying Doctor service.

Prince Harry and his wife Meghan are believed to have touched down in Sydney early on a drizzly Sydney morning.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have arrived in Sydney to begin an official visit to Australia, Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand.

This is Harry and Meghan's first overseas tour as a married couple.

Having some well deserved rest before a full on couple of weeks, Harry and Meghan will be formally welcomed to Admiralty House by the Governor-General Sir Peter Cosgrove on October 16, taking in views over Sydney Harbour before meeting representatives from the 18 countries involved in the Invictus Games in Sydney.

Despite the almost 20-hour flight from London to Australia, both royals looked fresh-faced and happy to kick off their 16-day tour of the continent, which will take them across Australia, Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand.

It's the first time Prince Harry and Meghan have travelled to Australia together, following their wedding in May this year.

The sporting event founded by Harry in 2014 gives sick and injured military personnel and veterans the opportunity to compete in sports such as wheelchair basketball.

Harry and Meghan will also head to New Zealand, Fiji and Tonga.

While in Sydney they will launch the Invictus Games, which Harry set up, take in the sights of a Sydney zoo and visit the rural Flying Doctor service.

The tour will conclude with a four-day trip to New Zealand, where they will be greeted by Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern.

The visit comes six months after Prince Charles made his 16th official visit to Australia, primarily to open the 21st Commonwealth Games on Queensland's Gold Coast.
