Go ahead and mark your calendars because Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are going on tour! There's clearly no rest of the new duchess and her prince, and it looks like their first year of marriage is already filling up quickly. Makes sense when you're living the life of a royal. The Palace released a statement announcing their upcoming events for this fall, and we can hardly wait. 


  • It all begins in Australia, where the two will travel for the Invictus Games in Sydney. 

    Kensington Palace announced on Sunday, “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.” 

    The life of a duchess doesn't sound so bad right now.

  • We can expect the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to take off around late October. 

    The Palace also released that Meghan and Harry's tour will begin around the time of the Invictus Games, which runs from Oct. 20-27. It was Prince Harry who founded the Games for wounded or sick servicemen, so it will be nice to see Meghan by his side supporting the cause once again.  

  • And the fun doesn't stop there. The couple also plans to visit other countries that are part of the Commonwealth.

    The Commonwealth is made up of 53 counties, which are mostly former British colonies. It's surely a lot of ground to cover, but both Meghan and Harry have made it clear that they are committed. 

  • Although the tour will be undoubtedly stressful on the newly weds, Meghan already looks like a natural at her royal events. 


    The couple made their first official balcony appearance this past weekend, where Meghan looked calm and composed -- as a true duchess should. We're positive that she'll be just fine while on this long tour. Not to mention, she has a handsome prince by her side, so what could go wrong?
