Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have touched down in Sydney for their first major international tour and they’re far from alone.
The 34-year-old Duke and 37-year-old Duchess of Sussex waved and smiled at well-wishers at Sydney International Airport on Monday morning.
And while they may have a schedule packed with official engagements, it’s been reported that Meghan has brought her stylist and best friend along for the journey.
Jessica Mulroney, whose daughter Ivy, and twin sons Brian and John, acted as bridesmaid and page boys for Meghan and Harry in their May 19th royal wedding, is reportedly flying in from Toronto to be with the royals in Australia.
The Canadian stylist and her husband, Ben, who is the son of former Canadian prime minister Brian Mulroney, are said to be joining Harry and Meghan in an unofficial capacity.
However, it’s highly likely Jessica will give the Duchess some fashion advice while she’s Down Under, as Meghan has been known to lean on her pal in the past.
Reports claimed Jessica was flown to Kensington Palace back in January for Meghan’s wedding gown fittings and she’s previously dressed the Duchess for her wedding when she was on Suits.
Meghan’s go-to hairdresser, George Northwood, is also reported to be on the royal tour with her, and will travel around with the royals for the next three weeks. She will be photographed at lots of official events, but while she may have her hair perfectly styled, it’s been said that the newlywed has not brought a dedicated makeup artist with her because she’s become so good at doing it herself.
It’s also believed Meghan’s suitcase if packed full of outfits from Aussie designers, with the Duchess expect to show up at events in some of the biggest names in Aussie fashion, such as Zimmermann, Bec & Bridge and Ellery.
Indeed, Meghan has been a champion of Aussie designers in the past and even wore a gown by Australian-born, London-based duo Ralph & Russo for her official engagement photos back in November.
She was also spotted wearing a Camilla and Marc blazer matched with an Oroton cross-body bag to attend the Commonwealth Youth Forum reception in London in April.
