Meghan Markle comforts crying fan while on royal tour in New Zealand

Meghan Markle comforts crying fan while on royal tour in New Zealand

They came across a weka, with Andrew explaining they're New Zealand's version of a monkey as they're very cheeky.

Meghan stunned in a burgundy Hugo Boss dress, which she paired with a Cuyana bag and the peach suede Aquazzura Casablanca pumps she wore the night before.

Harry, in a black puffer jacket, and Meghan, in a black Seasalt jacket, then joined DOC ranger Andrew Lamason for a stroll along the yellow-sand beach, the royal couple arm-in-arm, sharing an umbrella.

After a 20-minute delay, the duke and duchess were greeted first by the leader of the opposition, Simon Bridges and his wife Natalie, before spending around 20 minutes warmly chatting to Jacinda Ardern, New Zealand's third female Prime Minister.

There was loud applause as Meghan began a speech in the evening - at a reception celebrating the 125th anniversary of women's suffrage in New Zealand - with the words "tena koutou katoa" ("greetings to all", in Maori).

They told Te Kāea "It's not everyday you get the chance to see a royal so we thought it would be a good opportunity and experience for our daughter".

Meghan has also used her first royal tour since marrying Harry five months ago to promote her own favoured causes, mainly female empowerment.

The pair shared six wickets as Pakistan at one stage lost five wickets in a chaotic ten-ball period. This is their third lowest Twenty20 worldwide score.

Meghan used to be an avid Instagram and Twitter user, but de-activated her social media accounts in 2017 when she and Prince Harry became engaged.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex earlier departed a windy Sydney airport, with Meghan wearing a burgundy dress.

The couple are scheduled to spend four days in New Zealand, where they will meet Ms Ardern, go for a trail walk in a national park, meet young people training to be part of the film industry, and visit a hatchery for the national bird, the kiwi.

'I didn't want to talk at them. This will definitely be your best bet to recreate the drama of Southland's pin oak, planted by the Queen then stolen by an apparently still-at-large-thief.

The last time Prince Harry was in Aotearoa, he spoke about his desire to settle down.

The Duchess of Sussex thanked the Invictus family for welcoming her into the fold as the Sydney event closed. They will traverse a series of suspension bridges slung between ancient redwoods, at the Redwoods Treewalk.

"The Sussexes are expected to leave their two-bedroom home at Nottingham Cottage, in the grounds of Kensington Palace", Roya writes, "and may choose to move into the main palace or find a new royal residence".
