Prince Harry and his new bride Meghan will visit Australia in October during their first official overseas tour, Kensington Palace has announced.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who married last month, will travel to Sydney for the 2018 Invictus Games - a Paralympics style event for defence veterans - of which Prince Harry is patron.

Prince Harry, a former soldier who served in Afghanistan, founded the Invictus Games in 2014.

They were first pictured together at the opening ceremony for the event in Toronto a year ago, and they cheered on competitors hoping to be chosen for the British team for Sydney a month before they were married.

Charles was in Australia earlier this year to open the Commonwealth Games, his 16th tour of the country.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will make an official visit to Australia, Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand in autumn.

The Royal couple will also visit Fiji and Tonga.

State governments have reportedly been lobbying hard behind the scenes, trying to lure the couple away from Sydney for a few days during their tour.

The chair of the Australian Republic Movement welcomed news of the tour but said it should also be cause for reflection about the nation's future.

The Duke and Duchess' attendance of the 2017 games in Toronto, Canada, where the couple watched the wheelchair tennis, was their first public appearance.

New Zealand leader Jacinda Ardern said Prince Harry had enjoyed his last visit in 2015.

"This is the Duchess's second visit to our country and I know New Zealanders will be very much looking forward to welcoming her back", she added in a statement.
