Succession is relevant because it is secured for the next generation. If William and Kate had no children then the pressure would mount on Harry to have a child to secure that succession. The BRF is well aware that the children of younger sons have inherited in the past. They are also well aware of the situation that arose 200 years ago when the King had no legitimate grandchildren, despite having 15 children.

A 'side trip' is not necessary a minor trip but one taking place during a visit somewhere else. Just as Charles made a 'side trip' to Vanuatu in April Harry and Meghan are being sent to Fiji and Tonga in the middle of the Invictus Games - something Harry has attended every day in the past but this year he has to miss half of the games to go to these countries on behalf of the British FCO.

I am so pleased that so many people on here would be happy to take a preventable risk and face the possibility of having a child affected by the Zika virus. I don't care how small the risk - why take it at all when waiting another six months should reduce that risk at all, or if already pregnant, calling off those legs of the tour.

I hope Harry and Meghan have a number of healthy babies, if that is what they want - but I stress 'healthy'. Why take any unnecessary risks, especially for a woman who is already 37 when there are other risks already there.

I wouldnt be surprised if Channel 7 in Australia did a rolling coverage of the tour, at least when they arrive in the country and maybe the Invictus Games opening ceremony.

I agree, and other Channels like 9 may cover a lot of the tour as well. There'll be a big media contingent travelling with them from Britain anyway.

The ABC has the rights to the games so will be doing the opening ceremony, along with various events and the closing ceremony. Whether they do live coverage or only a highlights package each day I don't know.

Channel 7 may be allowed to cover them arriving at the venues but that is all (and often with these sorts of events only the 'host broadcaster' is allowed to show things like that).

I didn’t know one of the channels have exclusive rights to it. I don’t seem to recall this for Toronto. But perhaps that ensure it’ll show on TV? I think ESPN showed the opening ceremony when it was Orlando.

In Australia the ABC has always had the rights - and they did for Toronto as well.

The other channels may show a limited amount of coverage in their news bulletins but the actual coverage is down to the ABC - who have put money into staging the games as well as a result of buying the rights. Normal practice down here for one network to own the rights to a sporting event and limit the other networks access (no different to the Commonwealth Games earlier this year when Channel 7 had the rights or the football etc).

I wonder if Meghan will take along some of the Queen's jewellery to wear?
E.g. a Royal Brooch or a Tiara?

She might take along a brooch, but definitely there won't be any tiara events on a tour like that.

A few of the RRs were pretty ticked off with this report. It was blatantly erroneous.

Unfortunately doing their homework is a choice in journalism these days.

And I'm always interested in the private side of their lives - hence every Cotswold, Lake Como, Amsterdam, Adelaide Cottage, etc report that comes out, I'm there hoovering it up - true or not!

There was briefing on the trip this morning. VERY busy time for The Sussexes, both together and on their own. Doesn't seem to have much break time built in. It's also nice to see that she'll be doing an event with UN Women. Nice nod to her past involvement.

The full itinerary

Close to 70 (by my count) engagements. I am exhausted just reading it.

Meghan is giving a few speeches including closing the Invictus Games. Impressive.

That is one jam-packed schedule. Can't recall such a busy one in years & that with no rest days. It does sound wonderful, though!

I think Prince Charles and DoC don't take rest days. Or at least Prince Charles doesn't. I think DoC was scheduled to leave earlier than him when they were in Australia earlier this year. QEII and Prince Philip also didn't take rest days on their last trip to Australia. So I think rest days are more of an exception than rule.
