Prince Harry, Meghan arrive in Sydney ahead of Invictus Games

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex touched down just after 6am on a overcast Sydney morning after the long-haul British Airways flight from London.

Meghan looked stylish in a black turtleneck under a black coat with a maroon scarf to stave off the brisk weather downunder, while Harry kept things classy yet casual in a grey sweater over a light blue collared button down and a simple tan satchel.

The pair held hands and smiled as they walked through the airport, only separating when it came time to get into the auto.

Their tour will take them to Dubbo in the NSW Central West, Melbourne and Queensland's Fraser Island.

This year's Invictus Games run from October 20 to October 27.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are gearing up to head Down Under for their first big Royal Tour as a married couple.

Hundreds of people gathered to catch a glimpse of the couple as they were driven from the airport to Admiralty House, the Sydney residence of Governor General Peter Cosgrove, the Queen's representative.

New South Wales (NSW) Premier Gladys Berejiklian welcomed the couple to Australia, describing the visit as exciting.

Their trip coincides with the Invictus Games to be held in Sydney from October 20-27.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are to ride a ferry across Sydney Harbour past the Opera House on Tuesday, as well as watch an indigenous contemporary dance troupe and see koalas at the Taronga Zoo.

The pair will then travel to Fiji and Tonga, before another day in Sydney, and will end their tour with four days in New Zealand.

"The duke and duchess are very much looking forward to experiencing the unique cultures and customs of those four Commonwealth countries and have asked that this tour allow them opportunities to meet as many Australians, Fijians, Tongans, and New Zealanders as possible".
