The couple's arrival in Sydney on Monday attracted a lot of attention.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex arrived in Sydney to begin an official visit to Australia, Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand.

It's the couple's first official royal tour since he got married in May.

The 16-day trip coincides with the fourth Invictus Games, which begins in Sydney on Saturday, and includes dozens of official events.

Prince Harry and Meghan were greeted by a large media and security presence at the airport on Monday.

They were taken to Admiralty House, the residence of Governor-General Peter Cosgrove in Sydney Harbor, who is the representative of the Queen in Australia.

The couple follow in the footsteps of Prince Harry's parents, Charles and Diana, whose first real tour was to Australia and New Zealand.
