The real tour has reached its penultimate day, with Harry and Meghan performing perhaps their most unusual activity so far: a "very good" competition.
But all eyes were on the Duchess of Sussex's attire that night, when she left for a formal reception in Auckland, with Meghan surprising the commentators in a recycled dress.

KEY WORDS OF HARRY FOR GRIEVING BOY
During his tour of Auckland, Harry had some words of comfort for Otia Nante, six, whose mother had recently taken his life.
Harry talked with Otia for several minutes, his grandmother Te Nante, 52, told News Corp Australia.
"Everything will be fine, look at me," Harry told Otia, and also explained to the schoolboy how important grandparents are.
Viewers reported that the prince made reference to his relationship with Meghan and told Otia: "I have met this amazing woman and now I have married her."
Harry, who was only 12 when his mother Diana died in a car accident, also consoled Otia's grandmother.
"You're doing a great job, Nan," he said. "Nans are so important in our lives."
MEGHAN AND HARRY NIGHT OUT WITH NZ PM
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex arrived for their last engagement of the day, an evening reception hosted by New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern at the Auckland War Memorial.
The party is celebrated to honor guests aged between 17 and 25 who have made a positive contribution to their community.
Meghan opted to wear a discreet but elegant dress by Antonio Berardi, while Harry looked elegant in a suit.
The Duchess of Sussex seems to have taken a leaf out of her sister-in-law Kate Middleton's book and decided to wear a recycled suit after wearing the dress for the first time to see Harry play polo last year.
The expectant parents were greeted at the entrance by hordes of admirers and Mrs. Ardern, who seemed to share a warm exchange with Meghan as they worked their way inside.
MEETING WITH THE PREMISES
This afternoon, Meghan and Harry are at their biggest public appearance of the day, lobbying the Auckland locals, many of whom have been waiting since this morning, on the city's waterway viaduct:
And is it just us, or has Meghan's bulk suddenly grown a little?
WANGY ROYAL WELLY
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex braved the wettest climate to dedicate an area of 20 hectares of native shrubs to the Queen's Commonwealth Canopy in Auckland this morning:
After that, they tested their hand on a little bit of "welly wanging" & # 39; – throwing rubber boots. Meghan seems a natural:
With the heavy rain coming and going throughout the morning, Harry hurried to help Meghan avoid any mishap of mud.
After the contest, which Meghan's team won, the couple was given an adorable pair of tiny springs for their baby, to add to their increasingly larger wardrobe.
MEGHAN AND HARRY VISIT PILLARS CHARITY
After a private lunch and a quick change of clothing, Duke and Duchess of Sussex arrived at the South Auckland headquarters for Pillars, a charity dedicated to supporting the children of prisoners.
Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern accompanied them on his visit.
Meghan changed her blazer, jeans and rubber boots for a pink dress by Brandon Maxwell and a Burberry jacket, while Prince Harry put on a blue suit.
Around 200 people, including children, families and supporters of Pilares, met at the charity's headquarters to meet with royalty.
While we wait for more activity, the sweet stories from the previous day of the real tour are still emerging …
A MAIN EMPLOYMENT OFFER
It is possible that hundreds of people have had the chance to meet royalty in recent weeks, but a teenager from New Zealand has managed to get a real job offer from Prince Harry himself.
Lucia Kennedy, 19, acted as the host of Harry and Meghan's visit to a mental health event for young people at a community cafe in Wellington on Monday, and told Things that he had promised to "fix" a job for her when she finished her college degree.
"They went up the stairs at Café Maranui, they introduced me and I basically talked with them, then I took them with all the participants and I kept the conversation on the next two tables," Kennedy said.
"I said to Harry:" I finish college in two years, I would love to come and work for you. "He said" we would love to have you, just give us a shout when you come, we will solve it ".
The visit to the cafeteria of the royal family aimed to help eradicate the stigma of talking about mental health issues.
"They were so authentic," she said. "Everyone was nervous, but as soon as they entered it was as if they brought a soothing presence."
A SCARY MEETING
The Duke and the Duchess of Sussex received a spooky welcome from young artists at a Halloween-themed event in Wellington on Monday night.
After another whirlwind of his royal tour, Prince Harry and Meghan arrived at Courtney Creative in the afternoon for the Things that are going to run into the night Exhibition, celebrating the prosperous art scene of the city.
When they arrived, they were all smiles, but apparently they were a little surprised after coming face to face with an orc, one of the terrifying creatures of the world. Lord of the Rings The franchise, which was filmed in New Zealand.
According to People The magazine, Luke Hawker, the man dressed as the startling creature, told reporters later: "I did not know if I was supposed to shake their hand but they were standing there.
Upon arrival, the couple had been greeted by two men dressed as soldiers guarding the door, with photos and video of the event showing Harry and Meghan interacting enthusiastically with all the costumes.
She may have missed the wardrobe note, but Meghan looked impressive, however, in a white dress above the knee of New Zealand designer Maggie Marilyn, wearing a navy blue Winser over her shoulders, while Harry wore a dark gray suit and a white shirt.
Earlier in the day, Harry and Meghan met with a group of people from mental health initiatives in a local cafe, received a welcome ceremony in the Abel Tasman National Park and made a walk with ranger, then attended a barbecue with the young ambassadors of the park. .
