Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's private jet struck by lightning

As Prince Harry and Meghan Markle land in Sydney on Monday morning to begin their tour Down Under, new information has been revealed about a flight the couple took last month that was struck by lightning

The scary incident happened when the couple were flying to a party in Amsterdam on a Dassault Falcon 7X jet worth over NZ$80 million.

It's been reported the aircraft the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were using was struck by lightning on the nose, just missing the aircraft's navigation system. The strike sent 30 million volts through the aircraft fuselage.

Although the incident would have felt dramatic, it is common for aircraft to be struck by lightning.

The flight landed at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport not long after the lightning strike, before the aircraft was grounded for over a week so it could be checked for any damage.

The couple were flying from London Oxford Airport to a party in Amsterdam to celebrate the opening of exclusive members club and hotel, Soho House. 

Other guests at the party included Eddie Redmayne, Jenna Coleman and Michael McIntyre.

Royal officials have refused to comment on the lightning strike incident.
