Harry and Meghan to head Down Under later this year: palace

Following Meghan and Harry's recent Royal nuptials, it has announced that they will be undertaking an official visit to Australia, Fiji, the Kingdom of Tonga, and New Zealand in the Autumn of this year.

The tour will coincide with the Invictus Games in Sydney, which are held between the 20th and 27th of October 2018.

The couple will visit the Commonwealth countries of Fiji and Tonga at the request of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. They shared a carriage from Buckingham Palace to Horse Guards Parade where they witnessed almost 1,500 troops perform a military display as part of the official Queen's birthday celebrations.

Following this worldwide sporting event for wounded and sick armed services personnel created by Prince Harry, the Royal couple will visit New Zealand, and then Fiji and Tonga.

Meghan Markle hasn't been part of the Royal family for a long time, so she is definitely still learning about what that means. "The trip was mostly about trying to understand where I come from, my identity".

They're due to travel to Chester in Cheshire aboard the Queen's private train on Thursday and apparently, this is a pretty big deal.

According to Harper's Bazaar, Prince Harry has been helping Meghan decide her attire for royal engagements.

Meghan would have no doubt received some expert advice over the "correct" way to curtsy, but Kate Middleton is likely to have shared some wise words of advice with Meghan over the royal gesture.

The specific dates for Meghan and Harry touching down on New Zealand soil has not yet been released.

Meghan appears to have an affinity for an off-the-shoulder style.

Kate took George and Charlotte to see their dad play polo on June 10.

Kate - in a $68 Zara sundress and summer wedges - sat on the ground to watch her husband play, plonked Charlotte on her lap and broke into a run down a small hill.

The Duchess was also invited to Sandringham for Christmas a year ago, an honour usually reserved for those who are married into the family.
