Although it was announced earlier this year that Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and of Sussex will undergo a part-commonwealth tour, the dates, as well as details, had not yet been announced. In an official statement released by Buckingham Palace yesterday, the details to the Duke And Duchess of Sussex’s Autumn Tour schedule was announced.
Set to take place from Tuesday 16th October to Wednesday 31st October 2018, the Duke And Duchess of Sussex’s Autumn Tour will see their Royal Highnesses visit the Commonwealth Realms of Australia and New Zealand. Following invitations from the countries’ respective governments, the royal pair will also be visiting Fiji as well as the Kingdom of Tonga.
The programme across these four Commonwealth countries will focus on youth leadership, environmental and conservation efforts – including the dedication of several new Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy projects – and the recovery and rehabilitation of servicemen and women through the Invictus Games Sydney 2018.
