Duke and Duchess of Sussex follow in Queen's footsteps on tour Down Under -

Duke and Duchess of Sussex follow in Queen's footsteps on tour Down UnderWhen the Duke and Duchess of Sussex kick off first Commonwealth tour as a married couple, they will of course follow a careful-curated schedule taking in each of their personal interests. As they do so, there will be one particular interest never far from their minds: Granny. The Duke and Duchess, who arrived in a wet and wintery Australia on Monday, are to follow in the footsteps of the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh throughout their tour, undertaking at least one event which exactly mirrors their visit 65 years ago. The Duke will speak on stage at the Royal Opera House in Sydney, 45 years after his grandmother officially opened it on October 20, 1973. In Australia and New Zealand, the couple will unveil the latest Queen’s Commonwealth Canopies, preserving native bush and the water-hardy Satinay trees, of the type used to build the London docks in the 1930s, in Her Majesty’s “legacy project”.

A spokesman said it would “mirror in format” the ceremony attended by the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh in 1953, emphasising continuity through the generations.

The Duke will deliver a speech welcoming competitors to the Invictus Games, with special words of gratitude for the families, partners and friends who have supported  them through their toughest times. The night will be particularly poignant for the Duchess. Little over a year ago, in her then-home town of Toronto, Meghan Markle made her first public appearance to watch Prince Harry at work. Then, she sat apart from him in the arena’s ordinary seats, with friend Marcus Anderson. It was later at the Invictus Games that the couple first appeared hand-in-hand at a wheelchair tennis event, before being spied in a private box at the closing ceremony together with friend Jessica Mulroney. A year on, having married and promoted to new titles, the Duke and Duchess will finally bring their public relationship full circle as they take to the stage together. Remarkably, Mrs Mulroney is reported to be flying from Canada to join her friend this week, after working as her unofficial long-distance stylist for some time. She and her husband Ben will be attending the Invictus Games in Sydney, according to the Sunday Times.  The Duke’s grandparents visited both Tonga and Fiji in that year, with a major tour around Australia from February to April in 1954. Meghan Markle: best looks Asked about the visit by a young woman from Tonga at a Buckingham Palace reception earlier this year, the Queen fondly recalled the “wonderful” time which saw them hosted by Queen Salote and serenaded by nose flutes.  Speaking of a large picnic attended by the two Queens, in which she sat on the floor, she disclosed a small difficulty unlikely to faze the yoga-loving Duchess of Sussex. “The only thing I found difficult was sitting cross-legged a lot,” the Queen said. “It’s quite painful for people who are not built in the same direction.”

Stacey Abrams: GOP opponent creating 'miasma of fear' over voting in Georgia -

Stacey Abrams: GOP opponent creating 'miasma of fear' over voting in GeorgiaStacey Abrams, Georgia’s Democratic candidate for governor, is trying to reach voters who don’t usually vote in midterm elections in the hopes to drive up turnout in her race against Republican Brian Kemp. As a crisis of potential voter suppression in Georgia deepened, the Democratic candidate for governor accused her opponent of seeking to disenfranchise people of color and women by creating a “miasma of fear” around voting. Stacey Abrams, who if elected would become the first African American woman governor of any state, is running against Georgia’s Republican secretary of state, Brian Kemp.
