Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to Embark On Fall Tour to Australia, New Zealand & More
By Brian Haas
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will go on a tour of the Oceania region after the governments of Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and the Kingdom of Tonga extended them official invitations.
"Their Royal Highnesses have been invited to visit the Realms of Australia and New Zealand by the countries' respective governments," a statement from Kensington Palace read on Sunday. "The Duke and Duchess will visit the Commonwealth countries of Fiji and Tonga at the request of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office."
“These individuals and their stories are so remarkable that the general public across the world needs to see this to draw strength from it and at the same time, competitors themselves will be able to use sport to rehabilitate themselves,” Harry explained during the announcement. “Everybody needs the recovery and the amazing thing about Invictus and the family aspect is that they can recover together.”
"They are now, without a doubt, the best role models that any parent out there or anybody could wish for," he added. "They are proving that if you have the will, anything is possible.”
