Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have landed in Sydney ahead of their tour of Australia.

Later in the tour they will attend an Invictus Games event on Cockatoo Island in Sydney before enjoying a reception at the Bennelong Restaurant at the Opera House. After an exhausting 22-hour flight, including a stop over in Singapore, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex stepped off the Qantas Airlines plane, during the early Monday morning hours in Sydney Airport. They were greeted with a huge media and security presence, as the nation shows its excitement for the royal visit!

Australia is preparing to welcome Prince Harry and his new bride Meghan Markle just days after Princess Eugenie tied the knot in a lavish ceremony.

Meghan looked stylish in a black turtleneck under a black coat with a maroon scarf to stave off the brisk weather downunder, while Harry kept things classy yet casual in a grey sweater over a light blue collared button down and a simple tan satchel.

Fresh from Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank's wedding celebrations, the trip is the couple's first outside the United Kingdom and Ireland and will officially begin on Tuesday.

The tour will conclude with a four-day trip to New Zealand, where they will be greeted by Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern.

While in Sydney they will launch the Invictus Games, which Harry set up, take in the sights of a Sydney zoo and visit the rural Flying Doctor service.

Harry and Meghan said during a television interview in November that they wanted to promote humanitarian causes close to their hearts across Commonwealth-member countries including Australia.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will attend 76 engagements across the four countries, including the Invictus Games in Sydney, which runs from October 20-28.

Harry and Meghan will also head to New Zealand, Fiji and Tonga.
