The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, aka Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, aka Haz and Mags, touched down in Sydney early this morning ahead of their first full-scale international tour as a royal couple.

As you’d expect, the media pack was stationed as close as possible to the tarmac around 6am to catch their arrival at Sydney Airport on a British Airways flight. Natch.

The pair are set to enjoy a relatively* low-key welcome to Australia today before their official duties begin tomorrow.

Tuesday’s itinerary includes a welcome by Governor-General Peter Cosgrove at Admiralty House, which will also be attended by athletes competing in Sydney’s Invictus Games.

Some koala cuddling at Taronga Zoo will follow, along with a trip across Sydney Harbour towards the Sydney Opera House. There, they’ll watch a you-beaut Bangarra Dance Theatre rehearsal.

Here’s the bit you lot may find most interesting: Kensington Palace states Harry and Meghan “will have an opportunity to meet members of the public” at the Opera House forecourt upon their departure.

It’s a lot to take in, especially after spending the better part of a day stuck on a plane, but it’s just the first part of a sixteen-day trek which will also see Harry and Meghan visit Dubbo, Melbourne, and Fraser Island. 

They’ll also jet across to New Zealand, Tonga, and Fiji as part of their tour.

If you’re keen to have a peep at their full itinerary, have a gander HERE. 

*It’s not low key at all, but when you are literal royalty, that is to be expected.
