She spent plenty money on the tour (they all do) but come on now. You can't add up the same pair of heels 3 times.

Honestly, last time I saw security this tight on a walkabout was in Ireland. They were surrounding them. Usually they do stay back a little bit to let the photographers do their job. I've also seen a few people being warned.

A lot has been said about Meghan's speech at the closing ceremony and how well she did and some have put an emphasis on feminism among the various things she talked about. Its finally hit me just what really impressed me the most about Meghan's speech and to me, it showed that the speech wasn't just a generic speech written three weeks ahead of time but one that hit home about these particular Invictus Games that she experienced.

We were all very amused and talked about the incident of the "Great Bear Hug" where a sailing competitor jumped onto the ship and engulfed Harry and swung him off the ground in a huge bear hug. During Meghan's speech, she gave more insight into the man, Ryan Novak of Chicago, and his story. She gave in depth meaning to what transpired on that boat that we all witnessed. She made it all about him, his struggles, the wonderful support system he's got behind him in his family and what the Invictus Games gave him a platform for and a meaning to his life.

Meghan wasn't there to spout on her issues. She was there in support of the athletes that competed and their indomitable spirit they all displayed proudly during these Games.

That's my take on it anyways.

Think 'Rainbow Warrior'. We no longer are quite as sanguine about safe little old NZ tucked away at the bottom of the world and ignored by the worries of the world.

Harry and Meghan are crazy, mad, popular and that brings out the fans and the fruitloops. They are HM's reresentatives and her special ambassadors to the youth of the Commonwealth and I for one am glad they are taking no chances and we'll probably never know if their was any added threat.

Love her speech, another amazing one. Also loved that behind her was cool pic of HM. From another vid, after her speech you could see the Prime Minister telling her "perfect" with a huge smile on her face. Well done Meghan.

What an amazing speech. It was only highlighted with her standing under the massive portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. What a statement.

Also lovely seeing the interaction between Meghan and Jacinda Ardern. They seem very impressed by each other. She mouthed "perfect" to Meghan after her speech.

125 year anniversary. Amazing achievement NZ of giving women the right to vote.

Fantastic speech. I have liked all if hers, impressed, thus tour. But this one was amazing. She is a great public speaker. And you can actually feel the personal touch in these. They don't feel like a generic speech her staff helped write.

The Invictus one was the same. I am happy how she handled the hug, and how she kept attention where it should be.
