I welcome this morning’s announcement from Kensington Palace confirming the visit of Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and The Duchess of Sussex to Australia in spring.

As part of Their Royal Highnesses’ official engagements in Australia, they will attend the Invictus Games in Sydney.

As the founder of the Invictus Games, The Duke of Sussex has become a champion for war veterans around the world, including in Australia.

His attendance, alongside The Duchess of Sussex, will be a wonderful highlight for the more than 500 competitors and thousands of spectators.

I know the Australian people will greet Their Royal Highnesses with great warmth and excitement wherever they go during their time here.

Lucy and I look forward to hosting their visit and watching the remarkable feats of Invictus athletes from around the world.
