Royals leave Australia for New Zealand

adminOctober 28, 2018




It can be difficult to keep calm in front of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

Just ask this young lady, who was taken in the middle of a real fangirl moment in front of the Duchess of Sussex during a public walk in Wellington.

The young woman came face to face with the real pregnant woman in Memorial Park, where thousands had gathered to greet the couple on their first afternoon in New Zealand.

And his reaction to the meeting was priceless.

The meeting and greeting this afternoon was the first opportunity for members of the public in New Zealand to meet Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

According to journalist Omid Scobie, the extremely popular couple threw the usual real protocol out the window when they met their 10-year-old friends, Sophie Hubbard and Hope Watson.

HARRY AND MEGHAN KICK OFF NZ TOUR

Previously, the duke and the duchess landed in Wellington, New Zealand, and both Harry and Meghan quickly changed their clothes during their three-hour flight from Sydney.

The couple arrived just after 3 pm local time and was greeted on the runway by a handful of dignitaries, including New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern.

The Duke and the Duchess of Sussex flew in from Sydney on a New Zealand Air Force plane with the country's Invictus team a day after Harry and Meghan spoke at the closing ceremony in Sydney.

Meghan took off her burgundy Hugo Boss dress and put on a maternity dress by ASOS and a brown raincoat by Karen Walker, while Harry changed his gray suit for a blue one.

Meghan's black dress, which also comes in non-maternity styles, sells for $ 70 on the clothing website.

She also went back to using her Sarah Flint bombs, a staple of the actual tour.

The royal couple will spend three full days in New Zealand.

Harry and Meghan will travel a path well traveled by members of the royal family, visiting Wellington, Auckland and Rotorua, which is known for its hot springs.

The duke and duchess will leave New Zealand on Thursday and are expected to travel back to the UK to await the birth of their baby.

Windy Wellington lived up to her reputation with Meghan apparently struggling with her dress as the couple walked down the stairs of the plane holding hands.

It is believed that the couple spent much of the three-hour flight talking to the Kiwi Invictus team.

After landing in Wellington, the royal couple was taken to the Government House where they received a welcome ceremony that included a haka.

The duke and the duchess received the traditional welcome in hongi of the general governors Kuia and Kaumatua.

This afternoon, Prince Harry and Meghan laid a wreath on the tomb of the Unknown Warrior at the Pukeahu National War Memorial, where the Duke was honored by the New Zealand Royal Service and Devolution Association.

Royals will now meet with New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and the opposition leader before a reception hosted by the Governor General to celebrate the 125th anniversary of women's suffrage.

New Zealand was the first country in the world to vote for women.

HARRY AND MEGHAN FAREWELL AUSTRALIA

The couple left the Sydney airport just after 10 am on Sunday with strong winds whipping Meghan's hair.

The royal couple said goodbye to a series of Australian dignitaries before the prince gave everyone a thumbs up.

The royal couple then climbed the stairs holding hands and Meghan made a slight wave while trying to hold her hair in the strong breeze.

Meghan wore a long burgundy Hugo Boss dress to board the New Zealand plane and showed the same pair of suede pumps and a naked travel bag from the closing ceremony of Invictus Games the night before.

The loose-fitting Hugo Boss dress, which sells for $ A450, seems to almost completely hide the protrusion of Meghan's growing baby.

Meghan used her basic pair of peach-colored suede pumps from the Aquazzura brand, which sell for $ A911.

The mini chain saddle bag that Meghan had was from the Cuyana brand, which sold for around $ A315.

Immediately after the final wave of the royal couple to their Australian fans, the door of the New Zealand Air Force 757 was closed and after a quick taxi down the runway, the plane took off.

The New Zealand athletes got on the plane just after 9 am, while the caravan of Harry and Meghan went to the airport.

Police teams with sniffer dogs were seen conducting security sweeps on the fringes of the Sydney airport.

The assistants were seen early this morning carrying a copy of The Sunday Telegraph in the plane of royalty.

Neither the Prime Minister of New South Wales nor the prime minister were there to dismiss Harry and Meghan, but were represented, respectively, by the state's housing minister, Anthony Roberts, and federal parliamentarian Julian Leeser.

Colonel Michael Miller will bid farewell to the Duke and Duchess on behalf of the Governor of New South Wales, David Hurley.

With her royal protuberance visibly flourishing, the Duchess of Sussex has managed to keep up with most of the 60 or more engagements in a hectic visit, greeted by enthusiastic crowds from the bush to the Pacific islands.

The royal couple attended the closing ceremony of the Invictus Games last night, where Meghan stole the show with a "very personal" speech to the crowd of 12,000 people.

The radiant Duchess of Sussex smiled and took the stage with easy confidence as she addressed the crowd at Qudos Bank Arena, her only speech in Australia during the actual tour.

"It has been a great honor to be here, supporting and supporting my husband in the Invictus Games, which began four years ago," he told the acclamation.

The 37-year-old mother spoke passionately about the "camaraderie and sense of community" of the Games, before opening up to the crowd.

"On a very personal note, I want to thank everyone for welcoming me to the Invictus family," he said.

"I'm not sure if many of you know, but a few years ago, before I met my husband, I had the incredible honor of finding troops deployed around the world from the United Kingdom, Afghanistan and several other countries.

"By traveling to these military bases, they gave me a very special insight into the lives of those who serve our countries. I could see the unbreakable bond between the military and the women on the ground, but at the same time feel the palpable longing of family and friends as they unfold. Once at home, the need to have the support of loved ones, especially since it speeds recovery and rehabilitation, is immeasurable. They have reminded me of those memories here. "
