Prince Harry Is Coming To Sydney!

Looks like we'll be having another royal visit sooner rather than later!

Prince Harry took to Twitter this afternoon to confirm that the fourth annual Invictus Games will be held in Sydney, in September 2018.

In the clip, the young royal explains how important the Games have become to service men and women around the world, and reveals that they had three criteria for choosing which country should play host after Toronto next year.

"First, it had to be an iconic city, known the world over," he said. "Second, it needed to be a city with a proud military heritage, which would welcome competitors from all over the world with open arms.

"And finally, we wanted to go somewhere where they were absolutely sports-mad and would really get behind our competitors.

"It was an easy decision really; the 2018 Invictus Games are coming to Sydney!"

The red-headed royal is then handed a surfboard - we can only hope we see him hitting the surf in Bondi - before receiving a phone call from our very own Kylie Minogue.

"We're stoked the Invictus Games are coming to Sydney, but you don't have to tell the Aussies to bring it," Kylie says. "It's guaranteed, no worries!"

What can we say, Kylie speaks the truth.

Bring on September 2018!
