The plane carrying royals couldn't land in Sydney due to what's known as a missed approach, as reported by royal correspondents on Twitter. The pilot had to circle the airport because there was a danger of landing too close to another missile due to the runway not being cleared.

Captain Nigel Rosser and co-pilot Ann Cole navigated the situation perfectly and landed Duke and Duchess of Sussex, as well as other passengers on board, safely in Sydney.

Royal fans were relieved to hear that Harry and Meghan were safe.

Reactions shared on social media

We're happy to hear that the royal couple is okay, wishing them safe travels!
