Meghan celebrates universal suffrage fight in New Zealand

She proved as much once more on Saturday evening, taking the stage at the Invictus Games' closing ceremony. They participated in a hongi, which is a traditional Māori greeting as they arrived!

"She said, 'Don't give it five days, give it five years.' You can hear anyone else say it, but when your hero says it, it means 20 billion times more".

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will kick off their second day in New Zealand with breakfast at Marenui Café in Lyall Bay, before visiting Abel Tasman National Park for a bush walk and a barbeque on the beach.

The royal couple will move on to New Zealand on Sunday, where they are expected to be greeted by Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern.

Now the pair are both based at Kensington Palace but with Harry marrying Meghan and Prince William - as the future King - preparing to take on more formal duties, they are reportedly planning on formally dividing and having separate management teams.

The royals then returned to Government House for meetings with Ardern and the leader of the opposition Simon Bridges, ahead of a reception hosted by the Governor-General marking the 125th anniversary of women's suffrage.

New Zealand became the first country in the world where women could vote in parliamentary elections in 1893.

The Duke and Duchess were also presented with a wide-brimmed Akubra hat, popularised by Hollywood classic Crocodile Dundee.

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

"You can imagine what it takes to screw up the courage to be in a very crowded terrifying situation, but I just had to be there", Donne said.

At Government House, a group of children got to meet the royal couple.

Greta Crowe, 11, said she told the couple that the best part of being a girl guide was getting to meet them.

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.

Meanwhile, the Duke of Sussex commended a Dutch veteran for consoling an opponent whose post-traumatic stress was triggered when a helicopter flew overhead at Sydney's Invictus Games - for wounded military personnel.

The Duchess of Sussex has said the women of New Zealand who fought for universal suffrage are "universally admired".
