At 6am this morning, His Royal Highness Prince Harry of Wales and Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex officially touched down in Australia and we couldn't be more excited!
This evening, the couple are recuperating after their long flight from London at the Governor General's residence, Admiralty House, in Sydney before tomorrow embarking on a busy 15-day tour of Australia, New Zealand, Tonga and Fiji.
This is Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's first major overseas Royal tour as a married couple and will comprise of a staggering 76 engagements, for which Duchess Meghan will need, of course, just as many stylish outfits.
The pair, who could pass as sisters, are inseparable.
The couple will be supported by a 10-person team while on tour, made up of personal assistants, a communications team, a digital officer and a programme coordinator.
And, if The Times reports are true, Meghan's best friend Jessica Mulroney and her husband Rob will also be travelling with the couple - in an unofficial capacity - to provide Meghan with stylist support and expertise for what will be around three outfit changes per day.
It's believed Meghan and Harry will pay for Jessica and Rob's expenses out of their own pockets.
Meghan's BFF, Jessica Mulroney, is a well-connected Canadian stylist, PR consultant, wedding planner.
She's also a mother-of-three children with husband Ben Mulroney, a presenter who also happens to be the son of former Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney. Meghan and Jessica met some years ago after Meghan relocated to Toronto to film the popular TV series Suits and have remained steadfastly loyal to one another ever since.
Jessica and Ben Mulroney are considered one of Canada's most glamorous power couples and according to a recent report in Vanity Fair, it's believed their social ties helped connect Meghan to Harry.
While she wasn't an official maid of honour, Jessica was still an incredible pillar of support for Duchess Meghan on her wedding day.
Jessica was Meghan's right hand woman during the Royal Wedding in May this year, helping her pick her iconic Givenchy wedding dress.
Jessica's seven-year-old twin boys, John and Brian, also played the role of page boys and, in the process, stole the show with their adorable toothless grins of the seven-year-old brothers, captured in official photographs on the big day, stole the show on in what has become one of the most iconic - and adorable - photographs of during the ceremony.
Since Meghan became a royal, Jessica is rumoured to still be working as the former actress' long-distance stylist from her base in Toronto.
