    Queensland to host The Duke and Duchess of Sussex

    Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will visit Queensland in October.  

    Their Royal Highnesses will visit Fraser Island (K’gari), home of the Butchulla people, on Monday 22 October, one of Australia’s dedication to the Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy initiative.

    The Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy is a Commonwealth-wide initiative to preserve forests.

    Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk has welcomed the visit.

    “We are honoured and delighted to receive Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, and I’m sure many Queenslanders will be excited by the news and will offer a warm Queensland welcome,” the Premier said.

    “Queensland has hosted many Royal visits over the decades and this will be particularly exciting, as The Duke and The Duchess will be visiting one of our most beautiful and iconic locations.”

    The visit to Queensland by The Duke and The Duchess is part of a wider Australian visit that also takes in the Invictus Games in Sydney in October.
