Such a wonderful speech from Meghan. I knew that New Zealand granted women the right to vote very early on, though I didn't realise quite how early women in New Zealand gained voting rights.
This has been a fantastic tour to follow so far, and shows that Meghan is and will be a great asset to the BRF.

And by a good amount. Australia was second and it was 9 years later. Canada was sixth and we didn't get the right until 24 years later. NZ definitely led the way for women.


Sweet that Meghan had the cakes sent out to the waiting school kids.

Yes, but Australia was the first country to allow women to stand in the parliament. Even so, NZ held the trigger for future hope for women rights. I love to read about this.

Here are Duchess Meghan's three speeches on tour in full:

Meghan is very thoughtful and articulate. She was able to greet Fijians and New Zealanders very convincingly in their native languages. It's clear that Meghan had some nerves, but she handles those jitters so smoothly. I'm sure her acting training helps. Plus, she's used to being on stage from a young girl acting in school productions. And I recently saw the Middle school graduation speech Meghan gave at the age of 13. She's amazing!

speech in NewZealand


speech in Fiji (starts at 2:23)


at Invictus Games (starts at 0:39)

Now that I think about it, Tonga is the only country she didn't speak in, right?

Three impressive speeches. She is clearly comfortable speaking and passionate.

Yes Tonga is the only one she didn't speak in. I guess the opportunity didn't present itself.

I agree her career helps with the speeches but she was natural even when younger.

At the Maranui Cafe, Meghan spoke about the pressures social media puts young people under:
“You see photos... and you don’t know whether she’s born with it or maybe it’s a filter.
“Your judgement of your sense of self-worth becomes really skewed when it’s all based on likes.”

During the visit Harry and Meghan were gifted two baby rompers from the awesome staff and volunteers at @LLAotearoa, a 24-hour crisis service offering free community helplines and text message support to people of all ages in New Zealand.

The Prime Minister of NZ Jacinda Ardern yesterday bestowed Megsie a set of earrings and Harry was given a Shape Shifter CD and Vinyl record.

For me it is wonderful that the main line of the RF now has three women the people seem to love on meeting - Camilla, Catherine and now Meghan.

Oh that's so cute. "Our little bump".

One thing has proven true to me that I've held since Meghan came into the picture and that was that she would excel as a public speaker. With the number of speeches that she's done on this tour so far, it shows that she was ready to do them rather than being given time to adjust to public speaking as someone who has never done it would likely have been.

Sometimes I think that Meghan's life up until she met Harry was all preparation for the biggest role in her life so that when it did happen, she would take to it like a duck to water.

Just looked at some of the pictures of the Tonga visit and it seems that the crown prince couple wasn't included while his younger sister was. Is it because he lives in New Zealand and she lives on Tonga?

NZ Herald published a cartoon after Meghan's speech, which included a quote from Kate Sheppard.

Probably was. I believe the King, Queen, Princess Angelika, and Prince Ata were all at the official dinner, but not the Crown Prince.
