Newlyweds Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will be touring the Oceania region, following the governments of Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and the Kingdom of Tonga extended them official invitations.

The tour will take place just in time with the 2018 Invictus Games, an international sporting event for injured and wounded sick servicemen and women. The event was created by Prince Harry back in 2014.

The couple’s trip to Australia comes at no surprise, as it was previously revealed that Markle will be joining her husband at this year’s Invictus Games in Sydney.

This will be the couple’s first official tour since their royal wedding last month. The two made their first public appearance as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex at the Queen’s birthday celebration, the Trooping the Colour.
