MEGHAN AND HARRY’S NIGHT OUT WITH NZ PM
The duke and duchess of Sussex has reached its last commitment, an evening reception hosted by New Zealand’s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern at the Auckland War Memorial.
The party I s held to honor guests between the ages of 1
7 and 25 who have contributed positively to their society.
Meghan chose wearing an underdimensioned but elegant navy Antonio Berardi dress, while Harry looked good in a suit.
The duke of Sussex seems to have taken a magazine out of Kate Middleton’s son-in-law and decided to wear a recycled outfit after wearing the dress to see Harry play polo last year.
The expectant parents were greeted at the entrance of hordes of fans and Ms. Ardern, who seemed to share a warm exchange with Meghan as they were inside.
MEETING THE LOCATIONS
In the afternoon Meghan and Harry are their biggest public appearance of the day, the meat with the Auckland locals squeezes – many of whom have bee waiting for this morning – at the city’s waterfront Viaduct:
And it’s just us , or has Meghan’s shot suddenly grown a fair bit?
ROYAL WELLY WANGERS
The Duke and Duc Susess Hesson braved more wet weather to dedicate a 20-hectare area of native bushes to Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy in Auckland this morning:
Then they tried their hand a bit of “welly wanging” – gumboot throw. Meghan seems to be natural:
With heavy rain up and down throughout the morning, Harry was quick to help Meghan to prevent fungal diseases.
After the benevolent wanging contest – like Megan’s team won – the couple got an adorable pair of little wellingtons for their children, to add their very growing wardrobe.
MEGHAN AND HARRY VISIT PILLAR CHARITY
After a private lunch and quick outfit change, the duke and duchess of Sussex arrived in the south
Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern accompanied them on their visit.
Meghan exchanged his blazer, jeans and gumboots for a pink Brandon Maxwell dress and Burberry jacket, while Prince Harry turned into a blue suit.
About 200 people – including children, families and pillar supporters – gathered at the charity headquarters to meet the royalities.
When we wait for more activity, a story from the earlier day of the royal tour is still illuminated …
A PRINCEL JOB OFFER
Hundreds of people may have been lucky enough to meet the royal in recent weeks – but A New Zealand teenager has succeeded in securing a true offer from Prince Harry himself.
Lucia Kennedy 19, hosted Harry and Meghan’s visit to a youth’s mental event in a community cafe in Wellington on Monday, and told Stuff. co.nz that he had promised to “sort out” a job for her when she finished her university degree.
“They came up the stairs at the Maranui Cafe, I was introduced and basically had a chat with them. Then I took them around all the participants and held the conversation on the following two tables,” said Ms Kennedy.
“I said to Harry, “I’ll finish uni in two years, I’d love to come and work for you.” He said, “We’d love to have you, just give us a scream when you get over we’ll sort it out.”
The kings’ cafe visit aimed to help eradicate stigma about talking about mental problems.
“They were so genuine,” she said. “Everyone was nervous, but as soon as they entered, it was as though they had a calming presence.”
A PROTECTION MESSAGE
The duke and duchess of Sussex received a ghostly welcome from young artists at a Halloween theme in Wellington on Monday evening.
After another whirlwind day on their royal tour, Prince Harry and Meghan arrived at Courtney Creative at the beginning of the evening for the Show That Go Bump In The Night exhibition celebrating the city’s flourishing art scene.
They all smiled on arrival, but got a little shock after face-to-face with one ork – one of the scary creatures from Lord of the Rings Franchise, famous for filming in the New Zealand.
According to People The newspaper Luke Hawker, the man who dressed as the alarming creature, told the journalists: “I did not know if I would shake my hand but they stood there e. They seemed quite afraid.”
On arrival, the couple had been greeted by two men dressed as soldiers who watched the door with pictures and video from the event that shows that Harry and Meghan enthusiastically interact with everyone in the suit.
She may have missed costume men, but Meghan looked amazing in an oversized white dress dress by NZ designer Maggie Marilyn, with a navy Winser London coat over her shoulders while Harry had a dark gray suit and white shirt.
Earlier this day, Harry and Meghan met with a group of people from mental health initiatives at a local cafe, received a welcome ceremony at Abel Tasman National Park, went on a stroll with rangers and then attended a barbecue with the young ambassadors of the park.
