After arriving in Wellington Sunday to a traditional Maori welcome, including pressing noses with elders in a hongi greeting, she spoke at a reception honoring 125 years since New Zealand became the first country to give women the vote.

The country has a "moderate" risk of Zika, which is transmitted by mosquitoes and can cause birth defects.

If that weren't enough, he also failed to show up at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's royal wedding at Windsor Castle back in May. Her mother, famed casting director Liz Mullane, commented, "I cast the ideal chimp".

Afterwards, he said: "They have had a hectic tour and we really want them to come here and chill out with us with no pressure and no stress".

In just four minutes the Duchess of Sussex has told the world she won't be shying away from her feminist roots now she is a member of the royal family.

"Tēnā koutou katoa [greetings to all]", she said, smiling.

Their itinerary includes a bush walk in Abel Tasman national park, a beach BBQ and visits to Rotorua and Auckland.

Meghan Markle may not have her own social media feeds anymore, but that doesn't mean she has no presence on social media. Meghan said I had a great tone.


The trip coincided with the 2018 Invictus Games in Sydney, an Olympic style sporting event for wounded soldiers that Harry helped found.

The duke and the duchess attended a beachside cafe in Wellington, New Zealand, and were praised for their efforts in highlighting mental health issues.

Mr Roberts said afterwards: "Almost three years to the day I was here to meet Prince Charles with my week-old baby who is nearly three now". And of course, none of her ensembles are complete without thoughtful details that pay tribute to a person (like Serena Williams!) or a place (Fijian blue!) she loves.

"I think they were overwhelmed by the welcome Australians have given them".

As for the excitement levels in the area with the couple's impending arrival, Wilson said it was relatively "muted" as there would be no opportunity for other locals to meet or see them while they were in the area.

The prince said that while the Invictus competitors were often called heroes or legends, they were just ordinary men and women doing extraordinary things and reminding everyone that no challenge is too hard to overcome.

After a hugely successful visit to Australia, Fiji and Tonga, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are now on their way to New Zealand to finish up their 16-day tour.
