‘I look forward to welcoming the Duke and the Duchess of Sussex to Australia next month.’

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will visit Australia, Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand from Tuesday, 16 October, to Sunday, 28 October, including the 2018 Invictus Games in Sydney.

The royal couple will also visit Dubbo, Melbourne and Fraser Island.

‘Their visit will be an opportunity to promote the incredible achievements of Invictus athletes from around the world, and showcase Australian programmes promoting youth leadership, environmental and conservation efforts, and will include a visit to a dedication to the Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy initiative on Fraser Island,’ Mr Morrison said.

Prince Harry’s father, the Prince of Wales, had visited Fraser Island in 1994, during an official visit to Australia.

Prince Charles had added Fraser Island to the Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy initiative during his visit to Bundaberg in April 2018.
