Prince Harry and Meghan's first major royal tour confirmed

Prince Harry and Meghan's first major royal tour confirmed”

Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, will make their first official visit together to New Zealand in October, Kensington Palace has confirmed.

In a statement, Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama says the precise dates of the visit have yet to be announced but it will be after the Invictus Games in Australia.

The tour coincides with the fourth Invictus Games which will be held in Sydney in October, the BBC reported.

The newlywed Duke and Duchess of Sussex joined the rest of their family to watch the parade, part of the Queen's birthday celebrations, in London on Saturday.

He said Australians will treat them with "great warmth and excitement".

According to sources, Meghan will be getting this exact opportunity this week, as she is joining the Queen for a one-on-one trip to Cheshire, traveling overnight via the royal train.

It wasn't too long ago that the California native was enjoying a relativity quiet existence in Toronto before crossing paths with Prince Harry and subsequently changing her world forever.

"The Queen knows the potential pitfalls of not giving [new members] a guiding hand", royals biographer Ingrid Seward told People.

Meghan, who claimed to have whispered "I'm nervous" to Prince Harry, cut an elegant figure in a baby pink ensemble with matching headpiece.

"It's all about the monarchy".

Meghan would have no doubt received some expert advice over the "correct" way to curtsy, but Kate Middleton is likely to have shared some wise words of advice with Meghan over the royal gesture.

When Prince Harry is with her, Meghan doesn't need to curtsy for Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice but they will have to curtsy for her.

As the planes flew overheard, seven-year-old Savannah Phillips - daughter of Peter and Autumn - was seen covering Prince George's mouth and telling him to hush while the national anthem was played.
