Hold on to your fascinator’s ladies, the newlyweds are coming to Royal Randwick.

The hottest couple in the world, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, will be descending on Sydney and attending The Everest, the world’s richest turf race.

According to the Daily Telegraph: “well-placed sources at Royal Randwick tell Private Sydney that plans are being hatched to get the couple trackside on October 13.”

Racing NSW boss, Peter V’Landy, yesterday confirmed that negotiations were well under way for Meghan and Harry to attend.

A private suite (obviously), is said to be secured and a private jet has been booked to fly the couple from Melbourne, where they will supposedly be beforehand.

The Invictus games begin in Sydney on October 20 and while the pair’s exact movements have not yet been confirmed, it appears they will be having a private holiday beforehand.

All eyes will be on the couple as they make their way around Sydney, and who knows, this might be another chance for our Aussie designers to make their mark with Meghan.
