Photos: October 15 – Royal Visit Australia – Arrivals

It’s Sunday night here in the states as well as other places in the world, but it’s early Monday morning in Sydney, Australia. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex touched down at Sydney Airport around 7 am (Sydney, Australia time) on a commercial Qantas flight. The duo were whisked away quickly and driven to Admiralty House where they will be staying while in Sydney. The couple will be spending the day relaxing and prepping for the busy days ahead. Meghan seems to be hard at work preparing for all of the upcoming meetings and engagements, as you can see from the purple binders she’s holding. Official engagements won’t start until October 16 (Sydney, Australia time). You can check out tomorrow’s schedule below.

I have added 4 high quality photos to the gallery. More will be added at a later time. Enjoy!
