Thanks Fros. I thought they were supposed to get a day off before going home.

I love this navy Antonio Berardi dress, so I'm happy to see Meghan wearing it again. BTW, she first wore it in May 2017 at her first polo match with Harry:

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.
These kind of things is what makes royal tours so special for me. Like Harry with Daphne Dunn, Meghan also had a connection reestablished during this tour with someone she interacted with even before she met Harry. This shows me that both Harry and Meghan aren't the kind of people who go visit somewhere and are basically put "on display" for people to gawk at and admire but they're very much a couple that love getting into the thick of things, pay attention to the people they meet and those people are not shoved to the back of the memory once its all over. The same thing happened with Lucia and the job offer. It wouldn't surprise me one bit if Harry came through for her once she leaves university.

These two people don't only give good speeches and talk the talk, there are just so many occasions where its proven that they also walk the walk and stand by the words that they say. That is a good indication of strength of character and should kids admire them, they have pretty solid role models.

These two are in the right job for them. Changing the world. Once kid at a time.

BTW: Little Gavin and his macaroni necklaces were portrayed on our morning news here. Actually I've been disappointed in the US news channels with picking up on this tour but little Gavin struck a chord. Sadly, the Invictus Games got absolutely no coverage at all on any station I pull in and with satellite TV, I have a *lot* of channels.

The US government does not really care what happens to their veterans. They are welcome to fight for their country, once they are of no use anymore they are discarded. Talking about the Invictus Games would show the people that these are people worth caring for and that is not wanted. IMHO of course.

Yeah @Osipi, these qualities were well known about Meghan before she met Harry. You could see it on her Instagram in the supportive and encouraging quotes and words of wisdom she would post, and in the way she shared personal life lessons, and gave so much credit and gratitude to her parents.

There's also the AOL Build interview on Youtube, that took place pre-Harry in which Meghan talked about Suits, as well as The Tig. There were young, admiring fans in the audience with whom Meghan interacted and with whom she had previously corresponded with via The Tig. One young lady in particular whom Meghan pointed out in the audience and warmly greeted, had been inspired by Meghan's example to become a charity worker in a foreign country.

I'm not getting in on a political debate over how the US treats their wounded warriors but I do know that there are programs that support them and also the Warrior Games here in the States where Harry got his inspiration from for the Invictus Games.

I was just surprised that there was no coverage as the US did send a team to participate. The Toronto Games were covered by ESPN I believe. At least for the Sydney Games I could stream things.

This entire tour though has met with overwhelming success and its been a joy to follow and see the people that Harry and Meghan met and the places they went. I most likely will never visit those areas and I've come away from this tour wishing that I could.

Another act of kindness by TRH

Wellingtonian Eva McGauley was invited to attend the Prime Minister’s Reception with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex in Auckland tonight. Unfortunately, doctors orders mean Eva is unable to fly today but when the Royal couple heard her story, they invited her for a catch-up at Government House instead.

I have had the most amazing morning! I am so honoured and thankful to have been invited to Government House to meet with Meghan and Harry this morning!!! They are such kind down to earth people who were really interested in the work EvasWish does. We were welcomed so warmly by Dame Patsy Reedy and Sir David Gascoigne into their lovely home and it was one of the most memorable and wonderful moments of my life. Thank you so much to everyone who made this happen 😍

New Zealand PM @jacindaardern says #RoyalVisitNZ has increased her "admiration" for Meghan. She says: "It can be a tiring thing and she's brought such warmth and grace on this visit...it hasn't slowed her down or the amount they've been out and about so that's much appreciated."

Can I ask is there a reason you call her Megsie?

A great honor for the Sussexes for the stamps. I'm surprised given Harry is 6th in line to the throne.

Those stamps are going to be a wonderful memento for the people that turned out to meet and greet Harry and Meghan and followed their tour in New Zealand.

What this tells me is, along with the other places that they've gone on this tour, that Harry and Meghan have been totally and completely welcomed and adopted into the hearts of the people. For a couple that is to represent the youth of the Commonwealth, they're doing a fine job of becoming not only their representatives but becoming one of them in the process.

This tour has generated so many memories, I think, for all of us. Granny must be busting at the seams with pride that this tour is such an overwhelming success.

Is the issuing of stamps the usual thing done after a royal visit?

Probably they'll do the same after this one. Commemorative stamps are money-makers.
They go to Roturoa tomorrow. Pity there won't be time for a dip in the hot springs there! It's a very pretty place.

Yep Hannah is a huge fan of Meghan when she was in Suits and has either met Meghan before or I believe Meghan sent her a video message or something. Hannah was one of her fans Meghan interacted with on social media.

It's lovely that Meghan was able to remember her and continue to encourage her.

Hannah was one of the fans from her Suits days that she had gotten to know. I can't remember if she was mentioned in one of her farewell posts, but Hannah was definitely one of the fans that connected with Meghan.

The Duke of Sussex was on a walkabout at Auckland’s Viaduct Harbour when he stopped to chat to six-year-old Otia Nante, whose unnamed mother recently took her life.

“Everything will be OK — look at me,” Prince Harry told the child as he explained to the boy how important grandparents were.

Witnesses reported how the Duke referred to wife Meghan Markle as he consoled the child. “I have met this amazing woman and I have now married her,” he said.

Mrs Nante, who now looks after her grandson, said: “Harry just said ‘everything will be fine, you will grow up to be strong and positive’.”

he offered Mrs Nante words of support.

“You’re doing a great job, Nan,” he said. “Nans are so important in our lives.”

So, it appears that Kiwis were trying to outdo Aussies on the walkabout yesterday.

Remember the flowers that Harry joked with someone that they can't give flowers that big to his wife? Well, we got bigger. So big in fact, it took two police officers to carry it, and they had to decide what to do with it.

I read that on Twitter yesterday. I did sniffle a bit at it.

The little boy who lost his mom, wow. Touches my heart to see Harry with him,

Hannah is so sweet. Not surprised Meghan remembered her, she has a lot in common with Harry in that. Sweet they got to meet.

The scenery has been amazing buy the best part of this tour has been seeing and hearing these two really connect with the people they meet along the way.

Just heard there was a major earthquake. Happy the couple were not affected. Hoping for the health and safety of the people of NZ,
