The Dukes of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, will make an official visit to Australia, Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand in October, a trip that will focus on environmental and conservation issues, the Kensington Palace said on Monday.

The Dukes, who were married last May at Windsor Castle on the outskirts of London, were invited by the governments of Australia and New Zealand, members of the Commonwealth.

In addition, Harry and Meghan will go to Fiji and Tonga at the request of the British Foreign Office, according to the palace.

“The program in these four Commonwealth countries will focus on youth leadership, environmental and conservation efforts,” the palace, the official residence of the dukes, said in a statement.

Prince Harry, 33, and Meghan, 37, will visit these South Pacific countries Oct. 16-31.

Since their marriage to the chapel of St. George in Windsor, the dukes are the center of great media attention in the United Kingdom.
