A plane carrying Prince Harry and Meghan Markle was forced to abandon its landing after coming too close to another plane on the runway. The royal couple were attempting to land in Sydney after leaving Tonga as part of their first overseas tour together. But the landing hit a snag when another plane on the runway was too slow to move. A video posted by BBC video journalist Simon Atkinson showed the plane sharply ascending moments before it was due to touch down. An announcement from the flight deck said: “There was an aircraft on the runway a little slow to roll... so the decision was taken to abort the landing.” BBC royal correspondent Jonny Dymond, who was on the flight, said: “Such aborted landings are not extraordinary events. At no point was there any risk to safety of the Duke and Duchess.” The plane landed safely shortly afterwards.
