Meghan and Harry attended Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank’s wedding on Friday, and it had been previously reported that the royals would be leaving the royal wedding reception early to catch a flight to Australia. Now, an Australian television network is reporting that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have actually arrived in Australia, ahead of their tour.
And, unsurprisingly, everyone is extremely excited to welcome the royals at the start of their trip:

In fact, people are so elated that they even filmed Harry and Meghan’s British Airways flight literally landing on the runway:

Per royal commentator Omid Scobie, Meghan and Harry will be staying in Admiralty House for the next week as they begin the royal tour. They will have a day to rest before their commitments start, though:
Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan are in Oz! Their @British_Airways flight just touched down in Sydney at 6:10am and they’re now en route to their Aussie home for the next week – Admiralty House. Today will be a down-day for the couple ahead of the #RoyalTour’s start tomorrow??

Even though the Duke and Duchess have flown on a regular flight from the United Kingdom, they won’t always be using public transportation during the royal tour. They’ll actually use a charter plane to get to Fiji and Tonga, and when they’re in New Zealand, they will apparently have the use of a New Zealand Air Force plane to get to most of their engagements. Plus, they’ll even need a helicopter when they travel to Abel Tasman National Park.
It’s going to be a very busy few weeks for Meghan and Harry.
