Prince Harry And Meghan Markle Are Here And Australia Has Lost Its Damn Mind

    There is nothing Aussie breakfast TV loves more than a royal tour.

    In case you missed the rolling, wall-to-wall coverage on the telly on Monday, you might not realise that Prince Harry and his impossibly beautiful wife, Meghan Markle, have arrived in Sydney.


    Because we are a country who has approximately zero chill about everything from plastic bags to horses, we (well, mainly me) are LIVING for this, the couple's first royal tour of the Commonwealth.


    They arrived sometime around 6am, I think. No one can be sure because we were all watching the flight path of a plane they definitely weren't on.

    .@British_Airways flight #15 about to land in Sydney. Appears as though The Duke and Duchess of Sussex spent some down near Yass waiting for Sydney’s airport curfew to lift. #royals #sydney #BA15 #avgeek

    Harry and the glowing Duchess actually flew overnight from London on Qantas. Myself, Karl Stefanovic and Kochie were frothing on the live footage which Today and Sunrise were shooting from outside the airport.

    Some housekeeping to make sure we've got the cleanest shot of The Duke and Duchess of Sussex! #9Today

    By the looks of things Harry and Megs will be travelling to Admiralty House in a Holden #straya #royaltour @9NewsAUS

    From the air.

    After a long flight to Sydney, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have arrived at Admiralty House! 🙌🏼

    And across town at Admiralty House.

    tl;dr? Their official 16-day tour that will involve about 76 engagements in Sydney, Dubbo, Melbourne, Fraser Island, Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand kicks off on Tuesday.

    Not long to go until the start of #RoyalVisitAustralia! 🇦🇺 The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are looking forward to meeting as many Australians as possible, and building an enduring relationship with the people of the country:

    For now Harry is probably catching up on sleep while Meghan, who looked as fresh as a daisy despite flying around the world, is probably pouring over these folders and studying how to nurse koalas over a cuppa and a Tim Tam.
