The Duke and Duchess of Sussex had an unexpected arrival in Sydney when their plane aborted landing just metres from the tarmac, because another aircraft was on the runway.

The pilot Nigel Rosser called the incident a "missed approach" over the tannoy, according to royal correspondent Rebecca English.

"There was another aircraft on the runway that was a little bit slow to roll and unfortunately hadn’t cleared the runway," Rosser informed passengers. "We were too close, so the decision was made to abort the landing."

The Qantas Boeing 737 plane was carrying more than 100 people - which included the royal couple, Kensington Palace staff and members of the press - was forced to circle and attempt landing again. The pilot added that it gave the passengers another great view of Sydney Harbour.

Harry and Meghan - who is pregnant with their first child - were returning to Sydney on day 11 of their royal tour after four days in Fiji and Tonga.

The royal couple had been in Sydney last week for the Invictus Games, with Harry addressing the crowds at the opening ceremony to praise those taking part and thank them for turning the games into a "symbol of honour and optimism for a new generation".

He also told the audience outside Sydney Opera House that he and Meghan were happy to share the "personal joy" of her pregnancy while in Australia.

The duke and duchess are currently attending the Australian Geographic Society Gala Awards, with Meghan looking elegant in a strapless Oscar de la Renta dress.

Meghan is due to present an award at the ceremony. The royal couple's tour will also include a stop-off at New Zealand.
