Meghan, 37, and Harry, 34, will depart Britain for a 16-day official tour.
'Despite having back-to-back engagements, they’re looking forward to having some time away from Queen Elizabeth II’s watchful eye,' explains the insider. 'They’re eager to get as far away as possible from Harry’s family — and you don’t get much farther than Australia! They can’t wait to escape from the palace and are literally counting down the days until their tour.'
The trip is just what the couple need. Not only are the pair thrilled to get our of Britain, but 'they're getting to do what they love most - charity work,' says the insider.
Focusing on youth leadership, environmental and conservation efforts and the rehabilitation of servicemen and women through Harry’s beloved Invictus Games, the trip is just what they need.
Not only are they thrilled to get out of Britain, but 'they’re getting to do what they love most — charity work,' says the insider.
The trip is focused on youth, which will take place in Sydney while they’re there. Though Meghan still feels pressure to follow protocol, adds the insider, 'She finds Australians much more relaxed and casual than Brits and wants to let her hair down on the trip.'
