Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are to visit New Zealand in October as part of their first global tour outside of the United Kingdom.

Along with Melbourne and Sydney, their Royal Highnesses will travel to Dubbo in NSW and Fraser Island off the coast of Queensland.

The couple will depart the United Kingdom on October 16 en route to Australia where they'll stay until October 22.

Afterward, they should be arriving in Nuku'alofa, Tonga for a brief visit, only to then return to Sydney and wrap up their tour in New Zealand.

Meghan Markle, 37, fueled pregnancy rumors when she recently stepped out in London with Prince Harry, 33, while wearing a loose fitting dress that could easily hide a baby bump, and now her mom, Doria Ragland, 62, is giving us more reason to believe the rumors could be true.

The Duke and Duchess have been invited to visit the Commonwealth Realms of Australia and New Zealand by the countries' respective governments.


The Duke and Duchess will arrive in Wellington and will visit Abel Tasman National Park, Auckland and Rotorua.

This will be Harry and Meghan's first major tour together, after a two day visit to Ireland in July earlier this year.

While the newly minted Duchess of Sussex is protected by hordes of bodyguards as she goes about her new royal duties, including jet setting trips to Australia and tea with the Queen, her controversial father is in hiding and in fear for his life. Following Fiji, on October 25, they'll visit Nuku'alofa, Tonga, before heading back to Sydney, Australia, on October 26.

Such projects they will focus on while overseas are most likely the Queen's Commonwealth Canopy projects, and the Invictus Games - set to happen in Sydney later this year.

The trip will focus on youth leadership, as well and environmental and conservation efforts.
