Britain’s Prince Harry will make his first official visit to Australia next month to attend a fleet review in Sydney.
The two-day visit marks the centenary of the first entry of the Royal Australian Navy’s Fleet into Sydney Harbour in 1913.
The fourth in line to Britain’s throne will be the guest of honour at the International Fleet Review, which features more than 40 warships, 16 tall ships and 8,000 naval personnel from 19 countries.
According to ‘The Times’, the prince will join Tony Abbott, the country’s new Prime Minister on the surveying ship HMAS Leeuwin to watch events on the water on October 5.
While the celebrations in Australia are spread across nine days, the prince is there for a couple of days during which he also plans to travel to Perth.
Harry visited Australia privately in 2003 during a gap year break, when he worked on a cattle station in Queensland and watched England win the rugby World Cup.
