Stepping out of a auto with Prince William, and alongside Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Cambridge looked gorgeous in an Alexander McQueen dress, a Philip Treacy fascinator, and matching Jimmy Choo pumps.

The destination for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's first official trip as husband and wife mimics the prince's parents first overseas tour, as they visited Australia in 1983, shortly after their own wedding.

A British Airways plane touched down at Sydney International airport at approximately 0608 on Monday morning.

Their 16-day official royal tour will also include visits to Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand. In Australia, they will pet a koala in a Sydney zoo, visit in the drought-stricken Outback town of Dubbo and meet indigenous leaders on Fraser Island, the world's largest sand island, in northeastern Queensland state.

Meghan and Harry reportedly flew in on a Qantas A380 from London via Singapore.

Kensington Palace announced that the trip would coincide with the Invictus Games, which is being held in Sydney from October 20-27.

Harry and Meghan were driven from the airport to Admiralty House, the official Sydney residence of Governor General Peter Cosgrove, who represents Australia's head of state, Queen Elizabeth II, Harry's grandmother.

The couple were accompanied by the then baby William for the visit, which saw the trio visit Alice Springs, Uluru/Ayers' Rock, and Sydney. Harry opted for a light blue suit to promote the initiative he is so passionate about, which he launched back in 2014 to change the lives of wounded, injured and sick service personnel.

Well, yes the PDA moment between the royals was surely the highlight of the gala, but apart from the lovey-dovey scene, a amusing incident which took place too.
