Pass the royal tissues, thanks!
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry arrived in Wellington, New Zealand after a three-hour flight from Sydney, Australia, to kick out the last part of their 16-day tour and the crowds were as crazy as they were in Melbourne to meet them.
After the couple, the Pukeahu National War Memorial visited to pay their respect at The Unknown Warriors Tomb (a “memorial symbol for all New Zealanders who did not make the trip home after serving their country abroad”), they met with penetrating lines of needy – including a teenage fan who began to cheat when she met the anticipated mom Meghan.
The fan burst into tears when Meghan approached her and the royal looks comforting her by holding her hands.
“Absolute hysteria here in #Wellington, including a sucking fan that was comforted by the Duchess himself!” tweeted royal reporter Natalie Oliveri. “Meghan spent a while talking to crying teens – one of the coolest moments of #royaltour so far!”
This is not the first fan outbreak that the couple has encountered during her tour: another fan broke down in (very happy!) Tears after Harry pulled her in for a sweet treat in Melbourne.
“Prince Harry just pushed me,” 19-year-old India Brown told The Herald Sun . “I’ve loved that family since I was eight and I’ve followed them around the world.”
“There was only such an opportunity and I just went for it,” Brown said to the outlet. “I did not expect it to happen because it’s actually against protocols.”
“I said” I know it’s against royal protocol but can I have a hug? “” Brown told me. “He hugged me and I broke in tears. He just said” Oh, you’re gonna bother me. “”
A welcome reception was hosted by Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and Governor Dame Patsy Reddy at the Government House in Wellington for the royal couple , where Meghan spoke to celebrate New Zealand’s 125th anniversary of women’s right to vote.
