We’re in the middle of 2018 and so far the only thing we’re certain about is that boy, we wish we had married royal. Harry and Meghan have been having a hell of a year following their engagement news, the wedding of the year, the birth of their nephews, houses for gifts, cottages (that look more like castles) to call home and don’t get us started on Meghan’s glorious new wardrobe.
As if that wasn’t enough to make us jealous, the couple is now embarking on a work trip – that sounds more like the holiday of our dreams. Taking to social media to break the news, Kensington Palace publicly stated: “The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will undertake an official visit to Australia, Fiji, the Kingdom of Tonga, and New Zealand in the Autumn ????????The tour will fall on the occasion of @InvictusSydney 2018.”
(Don’t you love that the Kensington Palace is using emojis?)
Yes, the newlyweds are heading to Australia, Fiji, the Kingdom of Tonga, and New Zealand. The trip will take place this fall and will coincide with the Invictus Games in Sydney from 20th-27th October.
The full statement explains that the duo was invited by the countries themselves to grace them with their royal presence (what is life?!). It reads:
“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will undertake an official visit to Australia, Fiji, the Kingdom of Tonga, and New Zealand in the Autumn. Their Royal Highnesses have been invited to visit the Realms of Australia and New Zealand by the countries’ respective governments. The Duke and Duchess will visit the Commonwealth countries of Fiji and Tonga at the request of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.”
