The dates of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex arrival to Fiji may be on October 23, but the big question is: Where would they be visiting?

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tied the knot on May 19 in a lavish royal wedding.

This is their first major official tour outside the United Kingdom. They tour Australia, Fiji, Tonga, New Zealand.

The 16-day visit to the four Commonwealth nations focuses on youth leadership, environmental and conservation efforts.

Their tour to Australia includes Sydney, Melbourne, Dubbo and Fraser Island. In Fiji, they will spend the first two days in Suva, while on the last day they visit Nadi before they head for Nuku’alofa, Tonga.

In New Zealand they visit Wellington, Auckland, Abel Tasman and Rotorua.

The last of the British royal family to visit Fiji was Princess Anne in 2006. Princess Anne is Queen Elizabeth II’s daughter.

The Queen has visited Fiji several times since the Colonial era. The Queen is the head of the Commonwealth of nations.

Prince Charles represented the Queen in 1970 when Fiji was given her independence.
