During a press briefing for the trip, Harry's communications secretary Jason Knauf was asked how concerned royal officials were that the Prince's new relationship with girlfriend Meghan would overshadow the tour.

"Not concerned at all," said Jason. "As you can see it's a very busy, full and varied programme."

He added that the trip was something "Prince Harry himself has been preparing hard for, so we're really looking forward to it".

Harry will have an entourage of ten people including Jason and three other communication officers, private secretary Ed Lane Fox, adviser Sir David Manning, two programme co-ordinators, a visit support officer and an orderly.
