Duke and Duchess of Sussex begin New Zealand tour

There were tears and applause as the royal couple were showered with gifts, including a New Zealand "Buzzy Bee" toy, which Harry held aloft to the delight of the crowd.

The country has a "moderate" risk of Zika, which is transmitted by mosquitoes and can cause birth defects.

According to Roya Nikkhah, Royal Correspondent for The Sunday Times, Harry and Meghan Markle are making arrangements for the birth of their first child next Spring, which includes a formal division of their joint royal household.

Speaking to the Sunday Times newspaper, the source said: "If you have one private office trying to manage both, things get hard".

'Meghan had started to talk to them and I thought I'm just going to ask'.

The newlywed posted a snapshot of her husband, Prince Harry, at the Invictus Games closing ceremony rehearsal Saturday.

The duke and duchess meet some of those in the crowd at Wellington.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex arrived at Totaranui in Abel Tasman National Park, where they learned about local conservation projects, in a Royal New Zealand Air Force NH90 helicopter.

He said it was a real topic that needed to be discussed.

Murphy said she was waiting for the Meghan to mention her past as an actress, "But she was so gracious and let others shine". "She seems really nice and kind and would be good for royalty". She said Harry responded: "What, waiting around at Government House in the cold?" and the couple both laughed.

The Invictus Games, founded by Harry, is an worldwide paralympic-style event for military personnel wounded in action.

New Zealand is the last leg of the royal tour; they'll soon be returning to the United Kingdom.

Mr Roberts said afterwards: "Almost three years to the day I was here to meet Prince Charles with my week-old baby who is nearly three now".

"She's been thinking about what to offer, especially with Meghan being pregnant".

Seeing how Queen Elizabeth, Meghan Markle and the rest of the royal family have made no comments about all of the dirty laundry that the Markles have been airing in public, it's doubtful that they will reach out to Thomas at this point.

He said: "They are men and women who have confronted a challenge and overcome it".

"I shouldn't have really even been there", he confesses, "but (it was) such an incredible loan by my grandmother, it was very sweet".

The couple are nearing the end of their marathon 16-day royal tour, which has seen them visit Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and Tonga.
