The Duke and Duchess of Sussex arrived at Sydney Airport at about 7am on Monday morning on a Qantas flight from London.

According to reports, the Duchess of Sussex has made a decision to bring her best friend and stylist Jessica Mulroney on the road with her next week when she and Prince Harry kick off a 16-day visit to Australia, Fiji, Tonga, and New Zealand-because even a duchess needs her BFF nearby.

They were accompanied by a full entourage of staff and security as they walked into view of the waiting media pool.

A commercial flight believed to be carrying the Duke and Duchess of Sussex has landed in Sydney for the start of the couple's first official royal tour.

Getty royal photographer Chris Jackson predicts Australians are in for something very special when Prince Harry and Meghan Markle arrive for their mammoth tour.

Harry and Meghan's tour of Australia is seen as a key one for the royal couple who, during a TV interview to mark their engagement last November, spoke of their desire to promote humanitarian causes close to their hearts across Commonwealth member countries including Australia.

Kensington Palace announced that the trip would coincide with the Invictus Games, which is being held in Sydney from October 20-27. The tour officially begins on October 16 and will finish on October 31.

It's also being reported that Meghan has invited her best friend, Toronto-based stylist Jessica Mulroney and her husband Ben, to join them and help her with her wardrobe in an "unofficial" capacity.

On Friday, royal fans will be able to catch a glimpse of Prince Harry and Meghan at Bondi Beach, where they'll be spending time with OneWave, an initiative that engages with mental health.

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

The couple will attend the games' launch and closing ceremonies.
