It is expected that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are on their honeymoon.

The only other Royal Family member to have used the train is Prince William, who is believed to have rode it during his birthday tour in 2003. The city will become the fifth to host the event celebrating mentally and physically injured servicemen and women as they compete in various sporting challenges. It will be one of the first times the former actress wows crowds in the United Kingdom without Prince Harry by her side.

The Netherlands is one of the countries that has supported the games from the start. He broke away from his romantic honeymoon with his new wife Meghan Markle to reveal the news. Take for instance Meghan's first-person pre-wedding statement and Prince William speaking candidly about mental health.

In 2020, 19 nations will compete in nine different sport areas, including athletics, archery, road cycling, indoor rowing, powerlifting, sitting volleyball, wheelchair basketball, swimming and wheelchair rugby. The couple made their first official public appearance at the event in Toronto, Canada in 2016.

The Sydney Games, staged from October 20-27, will see more than 500 competitors from 18 nations compete in 11 adaptive sports. Thanks to the Succession to the Crown Act 2013, birth order determines who will become the next king or queen of the United Kingdom, regardless of gender.

However, priority within the peerage system is still given to male heirs.

Considering how cute Prince George (a budding fashion icon in his own right), Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis are, why wouldn't the Duke and Duchess of Sussex want to follow suit?

Prince Harry will head to the Netherlands in 2020 for the Invictus Games.

Before Meghan's visit, however, Harry and Meghan will be appearing on the balcony at Buckingham Palace on Saturday 9 June for Trooping The Colour celebrations, which celebrates the Queen's birthday.
