Duke and Duchess of Sussex confirm huge overseas tour

This sounds very exciting for them!

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will travel abroad for an exciting overseas tour this autumn.

Kensington Palace has confirmed that newlyweds Harry, 33, and Meghan, 36, will visit Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and the Kingdom of Tonga later this year.

The trip will coincide with Harry's Invictus Games in Sydney, which run from October 20 to October 28.

According to BBC News, the couple were invited to Australia and New Zealand by the countries' governments, while their tour of Fiji and Tonga is at the request of the UK Foreign Office.

It will mark former actress Meghan's first international royal tour as a fully fledged member of the Royal Family.

She has previously travelled throughout the UK with Harry on pre-wedding engagements.

Exact details of Harry and Meghan's tour - including the cities they will visit and how long they will be abroad - have yet to be confirmed.

The decision for their first royal overseas tour as a married couple to coincide with the Invictus Games is a lovely nod to the fact they went public with their romance at the Invictus Games in Canada in 2017.

After months of speculation, Harry and Meghan confirmed their relationship by holding hands as they arrived for the wheelchair tennis event in Toronto.

The couple married at St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle on May 19.

They were gifted the titles The Duke and Duchess of Sussex by The Queen on their wedding day.

Since tying the knot, the newlyweds have kept a low profile: three days after tying the knot they attended a garden party at Buckingham Palace to honour Prince Charles' 70th birthday, before disappearing from the public eye.

It's been speculated Harry and Meghan may have been on honeymoon but that has not been confirmed by the palace.

They returned to public duty at Trooping The Colour on Saturday, joining the royal family on the balcony at Buckingham Palace to watch the RAF Flypast.

Meanwhile, Meghan will join The Queen for a series of engagements in Chester later this week, marking the first time she has accompanied Her Majesty in an official work capacity, and the first time she has carried out a royal engagement without Harry.
