  • The Duke and Duchess of Sussex visit an exhibition of Tongan handicrafts mats and tapa cloths at the Fa'onelua Convention Centre in Nuku'alofa Tonga Friday Oct. 26 2018

The Duchess of Sussex captured a candid moment while her husband Prince Harry rehearsed for his Invictus Games closing ceremony speech.

Members of the New Zealand Defence Force performed a haka, a traditional dance, and a 21-gun salute rang out to mark the occasion.

Seeing as though the Duke and Duchess have been in nearly non-stop work mode since beginning their overseas tour, it's nice to hear that they got the chance to have a low-key night during their trip.

Meghan Markle is now on a 16 day long tour of Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and Tonga.

"I want to be a fashion designer when I grow up - this is a good start", she said.

Harry returned the compliment, saying he and Meghan "genuinely couldn't think of a better place to announce the upcoming baby, be it a boy or a girl".

The couple have already visited Fiji and Tonga on the marathon trip, and will leave Sydney on Sunday morning, having closed the Invictus Games in the city on Saturday night.

Also among the crowd was Jan Richardson who opted for a more direct approach when asking the duke and duchess for a picture.

They departed the airport for a traditional Maori welcome and reception at the residence of the Governor-General of New Zealand Patsy Reddy.

A group of children, who had travelled down from Kairanga School in Palmerston North, said that Meghan told them she was really cold.

In recent years Kate Middleton has proved she's quite the budding photographer with some gorgeous family photos.

A Government House representative later said it was a false alarm caused by a vegetable steamer in the kitchen.

Harry Smith, 7, arrived at Pukeahu National War Memorial at 8.30am in hope of meeting his namesake, Prince Harry.

The royal tour coincided with Sydney hosting the Invictus Games, with Harry and Meghan catching some of the early adaptive sports events involving 500 competitors from 18 nations.

Speaking before the final, Prime Minister Scott Morrison said it had been a "magic week for Sydney", which has hosted the week-long games for wounded, injured and ill veteran and active service personnel.

The tune left Meghan, who is about four months pregnant and has taken medical advice about the Zika virus, in irrepressible giggles.
