In what could perhaps be the second most exciting royal news this week - the first of course being a royal engagement! - there is speculation that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's first royal duties as a married couple could involve a trip to the humble shores of Australia (one of the perks of being part of the British Commonwealth). Markle, or should we say Her Royal Highness, the Duchess of Sussex will join Prince Harry at the Invictus Games following which are being held in Sydney in October 2018 following their wedding in May.

Markle and Prince Harry famously made their first formal appearance as a couple at the Invictus Games in Toronto this September. The Games are an Olympic-style sporting event and were foundered by Prince Harry to support injured servicemen and women.

Visiting the land Down Under has become a bit of a trend on the royal newly-wed tour. Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge first visited Australia in 2014, joined by Prince George who was eight months old at the time. Likewise, Prince Charles and Princess Diana toured Australian in 1983, joined by then nine month-old Prince William.

In the couple's engagement video with the BBC, Markle revealed that she was excited to tour the Commonwealth of Nations, and we would be more than happy to see her on the very first stop.
