  • Steven Ciobo, the country’s tourism minister, offered to help Prince Harry plan his pre-wedding festivities.
  • He tweeted that Australia “stands ready” to organise the stag, and honeymoon.
  • Ciobo recommended that Harry try “adventure experiences” and luxury lodges.

As world leaders and celebrities reacted with glee to Prince Harry’s engagement to Meghan Markle, the Australian government has also offered to plan and host the prince’s stag do .

Steven Ciobo, Australia’s minister for trade and tourism, said on Thursday that he had written to Prince Harry to offer the services of the government’s official tourism agency.

Ciobo also said that Australia would be an ideal honeymoon venue.

He wrote:

“I have written to His Royal Highness Prince Henry of Wales, congratulating him on his engagement to Ms Meghan Markle and inviting him to Australia for his pre-wedding celebrations and honeymoon.

“I have offered the services of Tourism Australia to design the ultimate Australian experience for the celebrations. […]

“I told Prince Harry Tourism Australia stands ready to work with him and Ms Markle to design an itinerary to their tastes.”

In his pitch, Ciobo also recommended that Prince Harry visit before his wedding “adventure experiences” in regions including the Gold Coast and Northern Territory, where his brother Prince William and sister-in-law Kate Middleton also visited three years ago.

For the honeymoon, Ciobo also singled out luxury lodges, including:

Longitude 131, a self-styled “luxury wilderness camp” in the Northern Territory, where Prince William and Kate Middleton previously stayed…

… Southern Ocean Lodge, which overlooks the sea on Australia’s southern Kangaroo Island…

Ciobo’s offer wasn’t totally met with enthusiasm on social media, however.

“I don’t believe we as taxpayers should be forking the bill for it,” one Australian wrote, according to the BBC.

“Isnt [sic] there more important issues for Australia’s tax money,” another user, raiders1988, tweeted.

The tweets came despite Ciobo making no suggestion that Australia would pay for the proposed trips.

Australia is part of the Commonwealth, a group consisting of 52 mostly former British colonies around the world. Queen Elizabeth remains Australia’s head of state.

Earlier this week, some 36,000 people also said they would “attend” a Facebook event titled “Prince Harry’s Stag Do,” organised by university students.
