The decision for their first royal overseas tour as a married couple to coincide with the Invictus Games is a lovely nod to the fact they went public with their romance at the Invictus Games in Canada in 2017.

The Royal couple, now known as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, will be making the tour, which also includes Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand, around the time of the Invictus Games in Sydney, which is set for October 20-27.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, who have just returned from their honeymoon, occupied the second carriage while Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, the Countess of Wessex and her teenage daughter Lady Louis Windsor rode in the third.

But while the yearly tradition is something Harry has been a part of since he was a boy, it was new royal Meghan's first time attending such a high-profile royal event.

During their 1983 trip to Australia and New Zealand, Prince Charles and Princess Diana travelled 23,701 miles and spent 41 days overseas.

Australians will welcome Prince Harry and his new bride Meghan to Australia in October with great warmth and excitement, the prime minister says.

The trip will be a poignant event for the newlyweds in a number of ways.

Harry and Meghan's home will continue to be Nottingham Cottage at Kensington Palace, next to Prince William and Kate Middleton's Apartment 1A.

The duchesses both joined their other halves on the terrace for the traditional Trooping the Colour flyby, when jet planes streaming with coloured smoke zip past the Queen's royal residence.

The parade marks the official birthday of the Sovereign, even though the Queen's actual birthday is on April 21st.

The pair continue to speak, with Meghan replying "okay".

Kate and Meghan's friendship seems to be a sweet one, as it's said that Kate actually helped introduced Meghan to her favourite fashion brands based locally.

Her style is unlike any other modern royal, swapping smart dresses for flared pants, suits and ripped jeans.
