Meghan Markle has a very busy month ahead of her, and the new Duchess of Sussex will embark on her very first royal tour.
She will join Prince Harry on a 16-day trip to Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and Tonga , including a visit to Sydney for the 2018 Invictus Games.
It will be a huge test for Meghan, as the couple will have a packed schedule of official engagements, celebrations and events – not to mention all the travelling inbetween.
Speaking as part of ITV’s new royal documentary Queen of the World, Meghan revealed she’s very excited about the upcoming tour.
And she also hinted they’re keen to more travelling.
She was reunited with her wedding dress for the show, which showcases the Queen’s role as head of the Commonwealth.
When looking at her silk veil, which is embroidered with wild flowers from each of the Commonwealth’s 53 countries, she focuses on the Australia section.
She says: "We’ve going to Australia so soon for our tour, so, exciting."
She later adds: "It’s such an exciting time for us, especially with Harry’s role as Youth Ambassador for the Commonwealth and the travel that we intend to do to do work specifically in all those different territories.
"53 countries, my goodness, it will keep us busy."
During the piece she also explains why she wanted to include the flowers in her design.
She said:"No specific flower repeats itself. I know that was part of how they had put everything together.
"I hope that when people come they can find their flower for their country.
"Because we have Australia, India, there are so many different beautiful features.
"I think also with Harry’s role as Youth Ambassador for the Commonweath it was so important for us to have the spirit of inclusively in our wedding.
"I stuck in a couple of flowers that were important to me as well, personally. There is a California poppy in there which has nothing to do with the Commonwealth but it’s where I’m from.
"It’s ours. It really feels like it’s important to us."
