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. Minnie Newman, an 11-year-old from Kelburn Girl Guides, said she was impressed with Meghan.

He said it was a real topic that needed to be discussed.

Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex greet Maori elders while attending a traditional welcome ceremony on the lawns of Goverment House.

According to the book, it seems that the new royal - who is still getting to grips with Palace protocols - didn't realise she was expected to follow suit.

With their formal obligations out of the way, the pair smiled happily as they began the much-anticipated walkabout to meet those gathered.

Royal author Robert Jobson has claimed that Meghan has inadvertently put her foot in the wrong place when she arrived without wearing a hat, even though she was told to by royal aides.

Among the gifts fans had for them was a homemade red-rose brooch from Alexandra MacKay, 10.

Friday's visit also saw Harry give a speech at Tupou College, explaining how planting trees and conserving forests is a simple way of protecting wildlife and improving the environment. And this year, they delivered an equally awww-worthy moment. He triumphantly raised it above his head as the crowd cheered.

Prince Harry and wife Meghan spoke with people working in the mental-health field and encountered a flightless native bird as they continued their tour of New Zealand on Monday.

While the newest royal had rugged up against the Wellington chill earlier in the day in a thick jacket and black boots, she stepped out of her casual daytime outfit and into a gorgeous white dress for a visit to Wellington's Courtnay Creative in the afternoon.

Afterwards the couple will return to Government House to celebrate the 125th anniversary of women's suffrage in New Zealand with Governor-General Dame Patsy Reddy.

"The achievements of the women in New Zealand, who campaigned for their right to vote, and were the first in the world to achieve it, are universally admired".

The couple then took a helicopter to the Abel Tasman National Park on the South Island where it was raining as they were welcomed by an indigenous Maori tribe.

Next stop is Pillars, a charity supporting children with a parent in prison, with Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern.

The couple met National Party leader Simon Bridges and his wife Natalie on Sunday afternoon - albeit slightly late after a fire alarm was activated, apparently by an air freshener in the toilets.
