Taking the stage ahead of her husband, Meghan said she had witnessed the "unshakeable bonds" that develop between soldiers in her past work for the United Service Organisation, an American charity providing support for overseas troops.

Yet the pair, along with Meghan and Harry, have shown care towards each other on a number of occasions during their tours.

Prince Harry and wife Meghan each performed a "hongi" with indigenous Maori elders, in which they pressed noses together to share a breath. They were quickly followed by the royal party and then the Duke and Duchess, who held hands as they came down the stairs to much applause.

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. The ceremony included a 21-gun salute and was attended by local schoolchildren.

While Prince Harry speaking was a given, many were surprised to see Markle make a speech as well.

She's been a one-woman audience for Prince Harry's Invictus Games ceremony rehearsals-even sharing a behind-the-scenes snap on the Kensington Palace Twitter account-and watched on admiringly as he gave a heartfelt speech in Dubbo.

They're also going to visit Wellington's Courtenay Creative, a film industry creative hub.

"I knew at the onset I wanted a bateau neckline, I wanted a cropped sleeve, I wanted a very timeless, classic feeling", she said.

Meghan and Harry, however, are much more tactile both in the United Kingdom and overseas.

Now that Meghan is pregnant with her first child, Thomas believes that he has his rights to see his grandchild, whether the royal family likes it or not.

"Bravo New Zealand for championing the right of women to vote 125 years ago". "She seems really nice and kind and would be good for royalty".

The Invictus Games, founded by Harry, is an global paralympic-style event for military personnel wounded in action.

After the arrival ceremony, their first engagement was a visit to the Pukeahu National War Memorial Park, where they laid a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Warrior.

Just before boarding the flight to New Zealand they chatted to NSW Planning Minister Anthony Roberts, representing the Premier of NSW, and the federal member of Parliament for Berowra, Julian Leeser, representing the Prime Minister.
