And last night Meghan delivered another passionate public speech, but broke the real protocol?

MEGHAN LEAVES IN WHITE DRESS
The Duke and the Duchess of Sussex have attended a Halloween themed event at Courtenay Creative, but they do not seem to understand the memo on the use of a costume.
Instead, Meghan wore a white dress above the knee (!) Of Maggie Marilyn with a navy blue coat from Winser London on her shoulders.
Costumes and makeup at Courtenay Creative were made by young Wellington artists as part of the Things that are going to run into the night exposition.
The couple faced the conditions of wind and humidity when they went to the event, with an assistant's attempts to protect Meghan from the rain by going hilariously wrong.
The couple was received by Lord of the Rings Soldiers Urakhai Orc at the door, with photos and video showing Harry and Meghan interacting enthusiastically with all the costumes.
The Duke of Sussex wished the group a "Happy Halloween" when he and the Duchess of Sussex published a group photo.
GIFT OF BIZARRE DE JACINDA FOR ROYALS
The leader of the kiwi, Jacinda Ardern, revealed the gifts she presented to Harry and Meghan when they arrived in New Zealand yesterday.
The Prime Minister gave the Duchess a set of Boh Runga earrings. But it was the gift he gave to Prince Harry, a Shapeshifter CD, which was a little weirder.
"(This is) because it includes a song titled Dutch, which is the song with which the All Blacks enter the field, even in Twickenham, "Kiwi leader said at her weekly post-Cabinet press conference.
She also gave him a vinyl album of stars.
In return, the duchess gave the Kiwi leader a community cookbook.
Ms. Ardern said they had important discussions on issues related to the Pacific, including climate change, children's issues and mental health.
He also noticed that the members of the royal family did not have the opportunity to meet little Neve, as the girl's bedtime had passed when they met.
Ms. Ardern observed that the couple was particularly passionate about mental health. "What I can share is that I came out even more sure that they are very genuine in their passion in this area and are very focused on that," he said.
'OUR SMALL BUMP'
Harry yelled at his unborn child while talking to the people inside the Abel Tasman National Park.
As the rain fell, Harry and Meghan took refuge inside a canopy that had been placed on the grass by the beach.

Addressing the crowd of locals, Harry said: "The weather forecast was much worse than this and we are very fortunate to be here." The rain is a blessing and a reminder of our connection to the earth … From my wife, me and our little bulge, it's a blessing to be here … We bring you my grandmother's regards. "
Harry is clearly enjoying the landscape today – see this photo, uploaded to the official Instagram account of Kensington Palace, which he took himself:
Under a tent, a kaumatua (elder) of the local iwi (tribe) Barney Thomas spoke at Te Reo Maori, wishing the couple well with their pepi (baby). Meghan smiled when the words were translated for her.
He also explained why Meghan was sitting behind Harry for the welcome.
"The media represents the god of war and we do not want to put our women in that space." We want to be inclusive, but especially Meghan, because she waits, we do not want to put her at risk, "he said.

And Meghan was all reassuring smiles when a young man, identified as a student at Young School in Houghton Valley, Joe Young, 5 years old, seemed overwhelmed in his presence:
A PROTOCOL EXTINCTION SPEECH
Last night, Meghan delivered a passionate speech on women's suffrage at a reception on the first night of the royal couple in New Zealand.
New Zealand was the first country in the world to vote for women, a fact that Meghan told the audience that made them "universally admired."
But the royal family is forbidden to talk about politics, a strict real protocol that Meghan seems to have broken with this speech, and not for the first time.
"Suffrage is not simply about the right to vote, but also about what that represents: the basic and fundamental human right to participate in elections for your future and that of your community; "The participation and the voice that allows you to be part of the same world you are part of," he said.
"And women's suffrage is not simply about women's right to vote, but also about what that represents: the fundamental and fundamental human right of all people, including members of society who have been marginalized, and be for reasons of race, gender or ethnicity. or orientation – to be able to participate in elections for your future and your community.
"Then, bravo New Zealand, for defending this right 125 years ago for women who deserve to have an active voice and a recognized vote and for all the people that this effort has paved the way for the world, we all deeply thank you.
"In the words of your suffragist, Kate Sheppard," Everything that separates, whether of race, class, creed, or sex, is inhuman and must be overcome. & # 39; & # 39;
Harry and Meghan left Australia after attending the closing ceremony of the Invictus Games at the Qudos Bank Arena in Sydney on Saturday night, an event that led them to give passionate speeches about the importance of the Games.
