They'll also watch a rugby tournament as well as participating in the more traditional rounds of meetings, events and memorials.

In Australia, the couple plans to visit Uluru, the stunning Outback sandstone formation that's also known as Ayers Rock. They'll also visit the Sydney Opera House and the city's Taronga Zoo.
