The Duke and Duchess of Sussex took part in a welly-wanging competition with local youngsters, then met with people in Auckland during a walkabout on the penultimate day of the couple's South Pacific tour.

The couple is now on a 16-day royal tour and halted in New Zealand, where Harry revealed what he calls the newest member of the royal family.

Wednesday is the final day of Harry and Meghan's tour, which has seen them also visit Australia, Fiji and Tonga.

"Because yes, women's suffrage is about feminism, but feminism is about fairness", Meghan continued.

On Tuesday, while Meghan and Harry passed through the huge crowd gathered to catch a glimpse of the royals, Sergel called out to Meghan, "It's Hannah!" The two used to correspond through direct messaging on Instagram, where Hannah says the TV star was an awesome cheerleader.

While walking along the city's Viaduct Harbour, Meghan was spotted by the young girl, Hannah, and she quickly walked over to chat and give her a hug.

Meghan, sipping from a cup of tea and wearing a grey Club Monaco trench coat to ward off the Wellington chill, added: "You're all doing really excellent work".

"All that separates, whether of race, class, creed or sex, is inhuman and must be overcome", she said in the words of Kate Sheppard. She then sweetly asked her, "How are you?"

You know what they say - happy wife, happy life.

Harry, 34, and Meghan were first met by the two most senior Maori elders - kaumatua Piri Sciascia and Kuia, Te Ripowai Higgins.

I hope he is ready to hold her hand and let her be the center of attention.

"I was friends with her on Instagram before she had to deactivate her account. We used to have conversations and stuff on there", Ms Sergel told reporters.

Cafe owner Bronwyn Kelly told Newstalk ZB that she couldn't believe royal security had been in her café earlier this year to check out how appropriate it was for an official visit.

He said: "Pillars has been so supportive to me and my family for so many years". I am so shaky and flustered. She features a quote from a 2015 speech she gave as a United Nations advocate for women's political participation and leadership prominently on her royal biography: "I am proud to be a woman and a feminist".

It was so nice of Meghan to take a moment with Sergel.
