It looks like Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are gearing up for their first major international state visit as a married could later this month.
According to new reports, Buckingham Palace has just released the details of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s 16-day itinerary to Australia, New Zealand, Tonga, and Fiji. And from what we can tell already, it’s going to be a very exciting trip!
Vanity Fair reports that the trip will focus on sports, mental health, conservation, and youth leadership. The trip will also highlight the initiatives relating to the Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy to protect forests around the Commonwealth. It is also being noted that the Duchess of Sussex has visited this region before.
It won’t be an easy trip, of course. It’s without a doubt that Harry and Meghan will be feeling very jet lagged but at the same time, they will hit the ground running. They will also be expected to take part in about 76 engagements during their entire trip and will only have about 10 household and two aides follow along with them on their journey. This will also include an official royal hairdresser for Meghan.
