Meghan, an advocate for women's rights, delivered a short speech during the evening.

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

Welcome to live coverage of Day 14 of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's 16-day Royal Tour.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have received a traditional Maori welcome on their arrival in New Zealand.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are nearly through with their royal tour, as they departed Australia on Sunday, boarding a plane at Sydney Airport headed for New Zealand.

And while their itinerary has all the obligatory formal ceremonies, including dinner with the PM and receptions in Government House, it is also marked by casual meetings with a diverse set of ordinary Kiwis.

A well-deserved round of applause for Meghan Markle.

The couple have already visited Fiji and Tonga on the marathon trip, and will leave Sydney on Sunday morning, having closed the Invictus Games in the city on Saturday night.

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

"I love her dress and she was really pretty", Newman said.

Thousands of royal fans had turned out to greet the couple on their jam-packed visits to Sydney, Melbourne and the regional town of Dubbo.

"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.

In the audio recording, the former actress said she had a clear idea of what she wanted to wear from the start.

"I can't believe this has happened, I can't believe that I met the royals, " she said.

The country's most famous suffragette was born in Liverpool, and emigrated to New Zealand with her family in 1868.

But it was the Duchess of Sussex who seemed dazzled during her lengthy chat with Daphne, repeatedly exclaiming "how sweet" before saying she hoped to introduce her to their "little one" next time they were in town.

Harry founded the Invictus Games in 2014 for wounded servicemen and women, with events previously being held in London, Toronto and Florida.

They will take part in a wreath laying ceremony at the Pukeahu National War Memorial at the tomb of the unknown warrior at about 4:45pm. They'll also plant a tree, as royals are want to do.
