She ended her speech with a phrase from Kate Sheppard, the most prominent member of the women's suffrage movement in New Zealand.

Although the tour may be almost two weeks in now, the enthusiasm hasn't waned among Kiwi fans.

They were greeted at the airport by Prime Minister Jacinda Arden, having flown in from Australia with the Kiwi Invictus team. When arriving in Wellington on Sunday they were met by an enormous crowd of fans, a fixture of just about every stop.

Harry and the former Meghan Markle recorded their memories of the wedding for an audio commentary that is part of the new "Relive the Royal Wedding" exhibition at Windsor Castle that opened Friday.

She said: "It felt really wonderful, it felt really good to see her put it on". He said Harry knew a lot about global conservation issues, and that the prince expressed concern over the proliferation of fake news and those who believe it.

A Government House representative later said it was a false alarm caused by a vegetable steamer in the kitchen.

Harry founded the Invictus Games in 2014 for wounded servicemen and women, with events previously being held in London, Toronto and Florida. The games give sick and injured military personnel and veterans the opportunity to compete in sports such as wheelchair basketball.

Mr Roberts said afterwards: "Almost three years to the day I was here to meet Prince Charles with my week-old baby who is nearly three now". And of course, none of her ensembles are complete without thoughtful details that pay tribute to a person (like Serena Williams!) or a place (Fijian blue!) she loves.

"So bravo New Zealand", she said, "for championing this right 125 years ago, for the women who well deserved to have an active voice, an acknowledged vote, and for all of the people that this achievement has paved the way for, globally".

"I'd like to think that they will be profiling the work that the Abel Tasman Trust have been doing in the park".

"We offered them a necklace as a gift and they said they liked it".

Strict Australian import laws would not allow them to bring the item back even if they had wanted to accept it The Mirror reports.

The tour of Commonwealth countries has seen the royal couple meet drought-stricken Australian farmers, visit the world-famous Bondi Beach and spend time in the Pacific nations of Fiji and Tonga.
