According to reports, the Duchess of Sussex has made a decision to bring her best friend and stylist Jessica Mulroney on the road with her next week when she and Prince Harry kick off a 16-day visit to Australia, Fiji, Tonga, and New Zealand-because even a duchess needs her BFF nearby.

They were said to have been greeted by a heavy police presence at Sydney Airport before making their way to Admiralty House, the Governor-General's Sydney residence. The tour officially begins on October 16 and will finish on October 31.

Despite the almost 20-hour flight from London to Australia, both royals looked fresh-faced and happy to kick off their 16-day tour of the continent, which will take them across Australia, Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand.

They are beginning their official engagements in Sydney tomorrow, including meeting representatives for the Invictus Games and visiting Taronga Zoo.

After Australia, the couple will fly to Fiji, where they will be greeted with an arrival ceremony similar to one attended by the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh in 1953.

On Monday, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle arrived in Sydney ahead of the Royal Tour and Invictus Games.

The US Open Final: Who Will Make it?
The 34-year-old Swiss won the first two sets 6-4 and 7-5, forcing an injured and struggling Djokovic to retire in the third. If she’s at her best, then she’ll make it to the final and if she performs on the day the title will be hers.

They attended the Invictus Games a year ago in Toronto together as their first public appearance as a couple.

Harry will pay tribute to Fijian war veterans and the couple will attend a state dinner before flying to Tonga.

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.

Mulroney likely provided her expertise for Markle's engagement party last November, and might have also been behind the beige trench coat from House of Nonie that the Duchess of Sussex wore to the Nelson Mandela Centenary Exhibit in London in July.

A Kensington Palace spokesman said: "There is a long history of friendship between the royal family and Australia, Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand, and their links with the United Kingdom are extensive".
