Duke and Duchess of Sussex land in Sydney ahead of Invictus Games

Prince Harry and his wife Meghan have arrived in Sydney for their debut royal tour.

The couple had a modest reception consisting mostly of media and security and were briskly bundled into a car bound for Admiralty House at Kirribilli.

An official welcoming ceremony will be held by Governor-General Sir Peter Cosgrove, and will include representatives of all 18 countries participating in the Invictus Games.

The Duke and Duchess will begin their official engagements in Sydney tomorrow, including meeting representatives for the Invictus Games and visiting Taronga Zoo.

The 16-day royal tour will also include visits to Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand.

While the primary purpose of the visit is the Invictus Games, there will also be a focus on youth leadership, particularly projects being undertaken by young people to address “social, economic and environmental changes of the region”, according to Buckingham Palace.
