(COLOMBO, LANKAPUVATH) –The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have arrived in Sydney to begin an official visit to Australia, Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand.
It is the couple’s first official royal tour since getting married in May.
The 16-day trip coincides with the fourth Invictus Games, beginning in Sydney on Saturday, and includes dozens of official events.
Prince Harry and Meghan were met by a large media and security presence at the airport on Monday.
They were driven to Admiralty House, the Sydney Harbour residence of Governor-General Peter Cosgrove – who is the Queen’s representative in Australia.
The couple follow in the footsteps of Prince Harry’s parents – Prince Charles and Diana, Princess of Wales – whose first royal tour was to Australia and New Zealand.
However, the couple did make an official overseas visit to Ireland in July.
