Older sister; Princess Angelika is the first child of the King. Her brother is the Crown Prince but she is older.

In Tonga Princess Angelika curtsied to Harry and Meghan which I found surprising. Meghan and Harry showed their respects to the king and queen and the Fail is dragging her for her curtsy (whatever). The tribute in New Zealand is off because the artist made her light skinned.

Thanks for the correction! I thought she was the middle one but should probably have looked it up

Do you have a picture of prince Ata because I seem to have missed him. Princess Angelika was clearly visible as she was sitting behind Harry and Meghan. Thanks in advance!

Meghan won the wanging of the wellies.

Duchess Meghan planted a New Zealand kōwhai tree, which was one of the distinctive flora she had representing the Commonwealth country on her wedding veil. It produces bright yellow flowers in spring and is a favourite food of tree geckos, tui, bellbird and kererū pigeons

Poor Harry! But Meghan is obviously more accurate at throwing things. She ought to have tried boomerangs when they were in Australia!

I don’t know if she was more accurate. But she certainly was the furthest. Though I really doubt Harry was being super competitive with his wife on the issue of welly throwing

6.2 magnitude earthquake near New Plymouth, NZ. By all reports from RRs in Auckland, they didn’t feel it.

About 4.5 hours from where they are.

How good would this be if this were to come to fruition.

Hundreds of people may have been lucky enough to meet the royals over the past couple of weeks - but one New Zealand teen has managed to secure an actual job offer from Prince Harry himself.

Lucia Kennedy, 19, acted as the host for Harry and Meghan’s visit at a youth mental health event in a community cafe in Wellington on Monday, and told Stuff.co.nz that he’d promised to “sort out” a job for her when she finished her university degree.

“They came up the stairs in the Maranui Cafe, I was introduced and basically had a chat to them. Then I took them around all the participants and kept the conversation going at the next two tables,” Ms Kennedy said.

“I said to Harry, ‘I finish uni in two years, I’d love to come and work for you’. He said ‘we’d love to have you, just give us a yell when you come over we’ll sort it out’.”

On another note

Megsie and Harry are getting their own set of stamps in New Zealand to commemorate their visit.


New Zealand Post has just revealed the images which will adorn the six stamps.

The royal couple's wedding previously featured on stamps in the UK.


This really melted my heart. There was a young girl by the name of Hannah waiting at the meet & greet for Megsie today who Megsie had sent a video message to in January 2016 (pre meeting Harry). Anyway, Megsie spotted her in the crowd and went over and gave her a huge hug. I'm amazed she remembered who she was.

Anyway, not suprisingly Megsie made Hannah's day and it sounds like her life. She is a obviously a massive idol for Hannah. Absolutely love seeing stories like this.

Nice to see the Sussexes continue to receive a very warm welcome in New Zealand.

It's lovely that New Zealand is releasing commerative stamps for the royal Visit but is that a standard practice? Can't think of another time stamps were released for a royal visit in recent years.

Lovely heart warming stories Axeyman.
Tomorrow is a day off for the couple isn't it? Before they fly home.
Imagine going through all those gifts when they get home.
