    Part of Meghan Markle’s duties when she marries into the royal family will of course be partaking in royal tours.

    There’s been a lot of speculation as to where the newlyweds’ first royal tour will take place, with Canada reportedly being a likely destination.

    Of course, after their wedding on the 19th May this year, the couple will first be heading on their mini-moon before embarking on the honeymoon of dreams.

    However, news of the exact location of their first royal tour was confirmed straight from the horse’s mouth last week by Meghan Markle herself – the pair will be heading to Australia.

    According to The Australian, Meghan and Harry will visit Sydney in September for the 2018 Invictus Games.

    ‘She said how good it was to be here and see the start of the Invictus journey,’ medalist Kerys Knight told the paper.

    ‘She was saying she went to Toronto last year but only got to see some of the swimming but this year she’s hoping to be there for the whole thing and see the whole journey all the way through.’

    As things stand this will be the pair’s official tour, but that could change if another is arranged before September.

    Either way, all we can think about right now is their fast-approaching wedding. Roll on the 19th of May!
