"We are looking forward to welcoming the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and taking advantage of the coverage of their visit by the world media to showcase our city", Phil Goff said. Meghan gave an empowering speech during the evening, telling guests: "The achievements of the women of New Zealand who campaigned for their right to vote, and were the first in the world to achieve it, are universally admired".

Meghan, who is pregnant and expecting a baby next year, donned a $56 ASOS maternity wear dress paired with a Karen Walker trench coat. The couple pressed noses with a long line of people in a greeting known as a "hongi".

They also lay a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Pukeahu National War Memorial Park.
