The new Duke and Duchess of Sussex shared the dates of their first royal tour on Kensington Palace’s Twitter page.


Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will be having their first-ever royal tour and the dates have already been penciled in.

As shared by Kensington Palace on Twitter, the couple will be traveling to Australia, Fiji, the Kingdom of Tonga, and New Zealand in the fall.

Their visit to Australia had already been expected since the pair, who recently returned from their honeymoon, will be present in Sydney for the Invictus Games.

The games is a Paralympic-style competition and annually takes place from October 20th until the 27th.


Kensington Palace confirmed that the tour will be around that time.

The new husband and wife will also be traveling to other countries that are included in the Commonwealth of 53 nations connected to the United Kingdom.

In April 2018, Prince Harry was appointed as the head of the organization’s Youth Forum. Seeing as Markle is a known activist who fights for women empowerment, the couple is seen as perfect representatives to be the voice and ears of the young people in the U.K. who have concerns about current issues.

Markle is set to take on bigger responsibilities as the newest member of the British Royal Family. In fact, her latest royal commitment is to accompany the Queen on June 14th to visit Chester.


Ingrid Steward, the author of the biography of the Queen and Prince Philip, My Husband & I, spoke with People to offer her two cents about Markle learning the ways of the Royals.

“The Queen knows the potential pitfalls of not giving [new members] a guiding hand. It’s all about the monarchy. She can’t expect Meghan to know everything without being shown,” she said.

Markle, who recently had her first Buckingham Palace balcony appearance on June 9th as they celebrated Her Majesty’s 92nd birthday, seems willing to be taught and has remained humble. For more stories about the Royals, visit our Twitter account, @amomama_usa.
