The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are heading to—where else?—Sussex.
Though they received their official titles in May, shortly before their wedding, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are only now making their first official visit to the British region. During their trip, scheduled for October 3, they'll see the historic Sussex Declaration and open the University of Chichester in West Sussex, then head to East Sussex to visit the Royal Pavilion, the Survivors Network of Britain, and the Peacehaven Youth Centre, Kensington Palace announced in a tweet on Thursday.
This is the first stop on what is shaping up to be a very busy fall for the royal couple. From October 16 to October 31, Meghan and Harry are set to make their first official overseas trip together to Australia, Fiji, the Kingdom of Tonga, and New Zealand. "The programme across these four Commonwealth countries will focus on youth leadership, environmental and conservation efforts—including the dedication of several new Queen's Commonwealth Canopy projects—and the recovery and rehabilitation of servicemen and women through the Invictus Games Sydney 2018," the palace shared in a statement earlier this month.
This week, Meghan—who happens to be the first to officially be called Her Royal Highness, the Duchess of Sussex—stepped out for her first official visit on her own, without Prince Harry or the queen accompanying her. She attended the opening of the Oceania exhibit at the Royal Academy of Art in London, where she was caught on camera closing her own car door, something that was, oddly enough, widely celebrated on Twitter.
Meghan and Harry are also reportedly planning their first North American tour for the spring of 2019—which would likely include a stop in Canada, where Meghan lived for years while filming Suits, as well as her home country of the U.S.—and we're crossing our fingers that they'll stop by and say hello while they're here.
