The visit will coincide with the Sydney Invictus Games in October.

Harry and Meghan exchanged vows in a glittering ceremony at Windsor Castle, near London, in May, watched up close by royals and celebrities and from afar by millions of TV viewers around the world.

The couple will follow in the footsteps of Prince Harry's parents, Charles and Diana, who travelled to Australia and New Zealand on their first overseas tour together.

The autumn tour is the first announced since the couple tied the knot last month.

Charles was in Australia earlier this year to open the Commonwealth Games, his 16th tour of the country.

The couple will visit the Commonwealth countries of Fiji and Tonga at the request of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.

In April 2014, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge went to Australia and New Zealand, and the pair covered 23,701 miles over 18 days.

The chair of the Australian Republic Movement welcomed news of the tour but said it should also be cause for reflection about the nation's future.

The prince made his first public appearance with Markle at the Invictus Games in Toronto in September past year.

"I know Prince Harry really enjoyed his last visit here in 2015 and I'm sure New Zealanders will want the Duchess of Sussex to also experience our warm hospitality and manaakitanga on her first visit here as a member of the Royal family", Ardern said in a statement.
