It’s official! Kensington Palace has just announced that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will make their first visit to New Zealand later this year.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will be visiting Sydney, Australia at the end of October to coincide with the Invictus Games. They'll also be making a visit to Fiji, the Kingdom of Tonga and—lucky for us—they've put New Zealand on their agenda.
If you're still having a hard time believing that these aren't just rumours, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has also released an official statement regarding the visit of the new Duke and Duchess.
"It's wonderful news that the Duke and Duchess are coming to New Zealand as part of their first major tour outside the United Kingdom and I look forward to welcoming them here," said Ardern.
Yup, you heard it right. This is official, solid, hard news and not celebrity gossip. Ardern stated that Prince Harry enjoyed his stay back in 2015 and this is technically the second visit by Meghan but her first visit as the Duchess of Sussex. As they're coming back, we must have done something right so let's keep doing what we're doing and show them the respect our royal newlyweds deserve.
