Before she was even the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle dove into royal duties feet first.

Meanwhile, Meghan and Harry, 33, are expected to travel to Sydney, Australia in September for the fourth Invictus Games.

A court circular published today also reveals that the royals will officially open the Mersey Gateway Bridge on the same day.

"I am delighted to announce that The Hague is taking up the challenge of hosting the 5th #InvictusGames", Harry announced in a tweet from the Kensington Palace account.

Meanwhile, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are reportedly returning over $9 million worth of wedding gifts in accordance with royal guidelines.

A lot of newlyweds would probably kill for a house of their own as they begin their marriage-but royals being royals, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have not one, but three.

The Palace has confirmed Meghan will join The Queen for a day of royal engagements next week. While that's good advice for most people, royals are not most people.

While Meghan may have a busy week planned, she and Prince Harry have another first coming up on Saturday.

It's believed the 33-year-old prince and his new wife have been staying in Alberta, Canada's Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge, at a 6,000 sq. ft.

The Invictus Games is a global sporting event for wounded, injured and sick servicemen and women who are either now serving or are veterans.

Mart de Kruif, a retired lieutenant general who is chairman of the Hague Games, said: "2020 is an important milestone for the Netherlands, marking 75 years since liberation".
