Kensington Palace issued an announcement detailing their 16-day trip through Australia, Fiji, New Zealand and the Kingdom of Tonga and the newlyweds’ schedule is so jam-packed we’re tired just reading it. (Seriously, they have so many plans abroad we couldn’t possibly list them all there.)
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex kick off their tour in Sydney, Australia, on Tuesday October 16. Some of the their stand-out activities include attending the 2018 Invictus Games in Sydney (they made their first joint appearance at the 2017 games) and meeting two koalas and their joeys as part of a breeding program at Taronga Zoo’s Tarona Institute of Science and Learning.
While in Fiji, they’ll participate in a Veirqaraqaravi Vakavanua ceremony, similar to the one Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip attended during their historic 1953 tour. Harry will also make a speech at the University of the South Pacific in Suava, and Markle will chime in with a few words as well.
They have a brief meeting with the King of Tonga planned, then will fly to New Zealand aboard a Royal New Zealand AirForce flight with many competitors from the Invictus Games. While there, Prince Harry and Markle will meet young kiwi (the national bird) chicks at Rainbow Springs and will close out their tour just in time for Halloween.
Is it just us or are they going to need a vacation after their vacation?
