^^^ I am tuning in for the sartorial choices more than anything else.

^ ITA. The Australians won't take kindly to any kind of spin, and so it will be interesting to watch what is said about this trip by eyewitnesses.

You know, I think if Harry had married an Australian, there would be HUGE hype and excitement, but instead it's just one big farce. I do not think there is much of a chance that there'll be any rapturous welcome and I do not think anyone really wants them there. Invictus aside, there really is no point.

Oh, man, 15 days of merching (ending up in 200K and upwards per appearance magically appearing in whatever offshore company she has established for this activity), speeches where others will have to listen to her talking whether they want it or not and a possible tiara  Cool not a chance M will miss that. Even if hell freezes over she'll still go.

There were rumors that the last time H was in Australia M went to stalk him for a chance to meet him. Now she'll go as a wife with a tiara. It will be her victory lap. And, as a bonus there's a prediction that during this tour she'll meet the very rich guy ($B rich, not like H who after giving her a title is now just not giving her the spotlight and the importance she thinks she deserves, without royal protocols or restrictions) who is the lov$ of her life.

(I'm personally hoping for a weave getting blown away or a veneer falling off... Nothing fancy. We're pretty much desensitized about the flashing Windsor brides so she'll probably flash again, and no big deal. Kate is the top of the top in that already.)

^ I had not heard that prediction, Ariel. I have to say, meeting a man with more money on one's victory lap tour and throwing over one's new husband for said lov£ would be ice cold. So I could see it.

I think we'll see weave/hair issues. Whoever puts on her wigs needs more training.

I really can’t see this trip coming off. I just expect to see Harry at the games by himself.
Prince Harry will scale the Sydney Harbour Bridge with Scott Morrison during his royal visit Down Under – but Meghan won’t be joining them for the climb

A 'panting' Scott Morrison will join Prince Harry for a climb up the iconic bridge

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will tour Australia between October 16-28

The climb will officially usher in the Olympic-style Invictus Games

Athletes will join the pair and plant the Games' flag when they reach the summit

The pair said they want to meet as many Australians as possible during the tour

Never has a Royal visit attracted such scorn. The Queen is insulting the people of the Commonwealth by sending these scruffy, grabby users. Harry used to be popular but he seems to be off his head now.

Keep the kids away. As witnessed in Sussex on their visit,when he banged two little boys heads together. Footage available online. It left one saying ouch and rubbing his head,whilst our oh so,"gracious" harry walked away. Him and wifey as high as kites.

There won't be restraining orders mainly since Harry and Meg are not subject to regular law as royals. I think Harry and Meg are clearly playing out some story line that is going on in their heads and it should be clear that neither are connected with reality at all anymore. I think we can safely say that we've crossed into a complete twilight zone that is completely unprecedented.

Unreal. I can't get over this; no one ever thought that Harry would incur so much scorn on his head with his life choices. The contempt is palpable.

Harry talks about canceling because of the 'hysteria' surrounding him and Meg, but thing is, there ins't any hysteria, just disgust and diffidence. It's not like she's new to the public eye really.

People are no longer clambering for Harry.  He ruined himself with his choice of wife.

What I find digusting is that these countries are paying the bills to host a reduced royal and the narc slapper he picked up from Soho House to be his wife. One can only hope that there's a massive surprise that results in cancelation or better yet, this itinerary's fake but needed to get Meghan into visa trouble as she's an American citizen and would likely need to file for a visa to travel to these countries.  eating cookies

People are no longer clambering for Harry.  He ruined himself with his choice of wife.

Harry ruined himself throughout his twenties; Meg was the only woman willing to have him. Like so many fools, he thought he would be able to just snap his fingers and a virgin/virginal young lady would be shipped in and he would be able to remain a jerk who went out, got drunk, and treated her like dirt while the wife would be a good consort and run his household so when he deigned to show up, he would have things running smoothly in his life.

Instead, reality occurred. No decent woman stepped in and wanted to get mixed up with Meg in a cat fight, decent families groomed their daughters to be career women, and career women don't want to throw away the life they built for themselves in order to put up with Harry's abuse, putting up with Kate pulling rank, or being abused by tabloid columnists who refuse to let the 80's and 90's go.

^ She does even with her stylist, who is no other than Jess Slug Lips Mulroney.
So it doesn't matter wether a stylist is going or not. If the outfits have been laid out beforehand (which they always are for tours anyway), then there's not really a need for a stylist to go. I think 3 communications people (PR people!) are going with them, and I don't understand why more than 1 is going. 2 I could understand, but 3??

^^^ But it's also not very smart for men to go into a Zika virus affected country if they plan on impregnating a woman soon after....

One can only hope she remembers to fix her hair and tidy her shoes and straighten her cuffs on this tour. Perhaps they should hire a nanny early, and Nanny can remind her.

Meghan Markle And Prince Harry Reveal Details Of Their First Major Overseas Royal Trip
For their first major overseas trip representing the royal crown, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are  doing it in full scale: 76 engagements in 16 days , 10 royal aides from their staff to attend to their needs and to ensure that everything goes according to plan and dozens of suitcases to carry their ‘bare’ necessities.
While the official trip, from October 16 to 31 and with stops in Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and Tonga, isn’t their first as a married couple, it’s the longest, farthest and most extensive in terms of their activities and the charity missions they’re expected to perform.
They will fly on commercial flights between Australia and the U.K., with their airfares paid by the Australian and New Zealand governments.
“Their Royal Highnesses have been invited to visit the Commonwealth Realms of Australia and New Zealand by the countries’ respective Governments, and Fiji and Tonga at the request of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office,” Kensington Palace said in a statement. “This will be The Duke and Duchess’s first joint visit to these four countries.”
According to the detailed itinerary released by Kensington Palace, the Duchess of Sussex attend two of the engagements alone, including one of the charities she supported when she was a single actress, the United Nations Women’s “Markets of Change” project.
Harry  has been on countless overseas trips representing his grandmother and has visited Australia on various occasions, however this will be the first for the new countess,  who has never traveled to the region. In Australia, they’ll be based in the Admiralty House at Sydney Harbour, the official residence of the Governor-General.
On their arrival October 16, the couple will be formally welcomed by Governor-General Sir Peter Cosgrove and meet representatives from the 18 countries that will send representatives to Sidney’s Invictus Games.
Kensington Palace said that Harry and Meghan have asked to meet as many Australians, Fijians, Tongans, and New Zealanders as possible.
The trip, according to the official statement, has been organized to respond to the young couple’s interest “to reflect the age of the Duke and Duchess and it’s designed for them as a young married couple. A different type of visit from a single man’s tour.”
It will include several opportunities to wander about and encounter members of the public who are expected to turn out in thousands to see them and will focus, among other activities, on youth leadership projects that address social, economic and environmental challenges across the Commonwealth.
“The Duke is particularly keen to highlight these youth-led initiatives in his new role as Commonwealth Youth Ambassador, and to shine a light on the work and aspirations of young people across the Commonwealth.”
Another major focus of the tour is the 2018 Invictus Games, which will be launched in Sydney, and has particular meaning since Harry and Meghan made their first official appearance as a couple at the Invictus Games in Toronto last year, two months before they announced their engagement.
“The Duke and Duchess are excited to see Sydney fully embrace the Invictus spirit, and to support the competitors as they compete across a range of sports at some of the city’s most iconic venues.”
The visit also concentrates on environmental and conservation efforts,”from engaging the local community in forest protection schemes in Colo-i-Suva, to the promotion of sustainable tourism on Fraser Island. The Duke and Duchess will dedicate a number of projects to the Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy in each country, learning more about local conservation initiatives, whilst visiting some of the region’s most beautiful landscapes.”
The plan includes visits to community groups to inspect the impact of drought in many regions and to special sites such as the Taronga Zoo in Sydney and Fraser Island in Queensland.
They will follow the footsteps of Kate Middleton and Prince William, who visited Australia in 2014, along with then-infant Prince George.
They also visited the zoo where the little prince met a bilby (a desert-dwelling marsupial) named after him. Meghan and Harry will open the new Taronga Institute of Science and Learning and meet two koalas and their joeys that are part of the Zoo’s breeding program.
While in Fiji, the couple will split up to attend various events: Prince Harry will head to Colo-i-Suva Forest Park to unveil a plaque, plant an endangered native tree and meet with locals including schoolchildren and conservationists while Meghan will have tea at the British High Commissioner’s Residence and hear about the project Markets for Change, dedicated to promote female empowerment in Pacific marketplaces.
Their 10 staff members will include their private secretary, deputy private secretary, three communications staffers, a program coordinator, an “orderly,” to deal with the luggage, a digital officer and a hairdresser for Duchess Meghan.

This is insane as they’ll have to rely on airport delays, traffic, no sleep or time for anything else. Surely this is a joke.
