Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s autumn tour
October 16-31, 2018 -- Kensington Palace says Prince Harry and his wife, the former actress Meghan Markle, will be touring Australia, Fiji, the Kingdom of Tonga and New Zealand this autumn.
The royal couple, now known as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, will be making the tour around the time of the fourth Invictus Games in Sydney, which is set for October 20-27.
Harry, a British military veteran who served in Afghanistan, created the Paralympic-style games as a way to inspire wounded soldiers toward recovery. This year’s event will bring together more than 500 competitors from 18 nations to compete in ten sports.
The couple follow in the footsteps of Prince Harry’s parents – Charles and Diana – whose first royal tour was to Australia and New Zealand.
