Australia's Minister for Trade, Tourism and Investment, the Hon Steven Ciobo MP, has written to His Royal Highness Prince Harry, congratulating him on his engagement to Ms Meghan Markle and inviting him to Australia for his pre-wedding celebrations and honeymoon.
Minister Ciobo offered the services of Tourism Australia to design the ultimate Australian experience for the celebrations. A proposed itinerary for Prince Harry’s pre-wedding celebrations featured thrill seeking activities such as a helicopter pub crawl in the NT, a ‘James Bond-style’ jetpack adventure in Sydney and dune buggies on the Gold Coast.
The announcement has generated over 200 media clips globally so far.
