Meghan and Harry take part in Kiwi 'welly wanging' contest

Meghan Markle Prince Harry New Zealand

Meghan Markle Prince Harry New Zealand

When Meghan Markle set about finding her flawless bridal look, she knew it would include something symbolic to show just how dedicated she is to her new royal role.

While selfies are not really part of royal protocol, the Duchess was seen breaking code for a few sneaky shots - one leaving a curly haired young boy with a smile that will likely last for days.

After months of speculations, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle confirmed that the Duchess of Sussex is indeed pregnant.

The couple watched an energetic performance from dancers SaintzUp and singers Tone6, with Harry nodding his head and tapping his foot as he got into the Polynesian rhythm.

Both William and Harry live in the Kensington Palace estate but with Meghan expecting a child it has been speculated the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will look for somewhere bigger than the cottage they now reside in.

Kirsty Wigglesworth / Pool via AP Meghan Markle addresses a reception celebrating the 125th anniversary of women's suffrage in New Zealand at Government House in Wellington on Sunday.

Meghan, who describes herself as a feminist, was speaking to a group of mainly women guests in Wellington that included Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern.

But what we also know (and seretly love) about her is that she does not pay much attention to Royal protocol, whatsoever.

"I'm sure a nanny was discussed too, but the main focus for her was on health and weight", the friend claimed.

Better protect your precious, Prince Harry!

She added: "Thank you for the warmth you have brought to your visit".

New Zealand Post has marked the couple's visit with a special issue of commemorative stamps.

The couple were pictured enjoying breakfast at the Lyall Bay café, before making their way outside to meet a line of young children who had patiently waited for the royals all morning.

He had a private audience with Harry and Meghan in June, after winning one of the Queen's Young Leaders Awards previous year.
