    Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are currently undertaking their first official long royal tour, journeying through Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and the Kingdom of Tonga together.

    From Meghan staying up late to bake banana bread for their host family to Prince Harry having his beard stroked by a very young fan, these two might have accomplished one of the most successful (and friendly) royal tours ever.

    It’s hardly surprising therefore that there is a high demand for the royal couple to visit other countries too, with many questioning when a tour around the United States would take place.
