Harry and Meghan to visit Australia, Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand

The Queen GETTY The Queen is the world's longest-serving monarch

The Duke and Duchess will head to Australia, Fiji, the Kingdom of Tonga, and New Zealand, in order to tie in with the 2018 Invictus Games, taking place in October in Sydney.

"The Duke and Duchess will visit the Commonwealth countries of Fiji and Tonga at the request of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office".

While many thought Markle looked stunning during her first major post-honeymoon appearance, others took issue with the off-the-shoulder design of the dress, calling it "inappropriate" and "a bit much" for the queen's birthday celebration.

The pair continue to speak, with Meghan replying "okay".

During Trooping the Colour's flypast this year, there was an adorable moment where Meghan said to her husband: "Say when [to curtsy]", to which he replied: "Now".

Meghan (on the palace balcony on June 9) had previously said she would join Harry for the Sydney Invictus Games.

"New Zealand is undoubtedly spectacular", she added.

"The Queen knows the potential pitfalls of not giving [new members] a guiding hand", royals biographer Ingrid Seward told People.

As for her fashion, the source explained that 'Like Kate does with her personal stylist, Meghan will receive outfits, look at sketches and discuss with Jessica what makes sense for her upcoming engagements. But despite being a groundbreaker, she apparently can't wear whatever she wants to wear.

Her clavicle-baring dress wasn't the only thing that drew attention to the new royal, as it appeared she'd been practising her regal wave.

Meghan also had her hair styled in a bouncy blowout.

There was no sign of six-week-old Prince Louis.

Kate and Wills were in another carriage while a third carried Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, the Countess of Wessex and her daughter Lady Louise.

The Duchess was also invited to Sandringham for Christmas past year, an honour usually reserved for those who are married into the family.
