The aircraft of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle was compelled to land in Sydney on Friday.
According to the Evening Standard, the duo was traveling from Tonge to Australia when the pilot of the Qantas airline, Nigel Rosser, was compelled to land the plane before their proposed destination. Rosser said at a press conference he had to make a “missed approach” because there was another aircraft on the track.
“There was an aircraft on the runway a little slow to roll … so the decision was taken to abort the landing,” said the message from the air base, according to Sky News.
Sky News royal producer, Valerie Hamill, reveal that the passengers and flight crew “circled and were on the ground for 10 minutes”. She said the incident was not “scary” and there was no question of security for everyone.
The royal couple certainly had an unforgettable trip. Earlier during the day, Duke and Duchess of Sussex visited the Royal Palace of Tonga for a brief visit to King Tupou VI and Queen Nanasipau’u. For this occasion, Meghan wore a Veronica Beard’s blue “Cary” dress and adorned her look with the golden curve earrings by Adina Reyter. Harry also looked classy in a gray suit and tie.
The couple had attended a reception and banquet with King Tupou VI and Queen Nanasipau’u earlier. Meghan wore a beautiful white Theia dress for that occasion. They also met Princess Angelika and Prince Ata, sons and daughters of King Tupo VI, at Fa’onelua Center, where they attended the exhibition of projects and crafts of young Tongans. Other visits during the trip included a visit to Tupou College where they enjoyed while the Tupou College Boys Choir performed a song to chase away the mosquitoes.
The visit was part of their first royal tour as a couple. After spending some time in Australia, they will head to New Zealand where they will end the trip.
