Sussexes are welcomed to New Zealand

Meghan wore a black Gabriela Hearst gown and a Maori inspired necklace

Britain's Prince Harry and wife Meghan were treated to a ceremonial welcome in New Zealand on Sunday where they arrived for the final leg of their Pacific tour, their first global royal tour since marrying in May.

Harry and Meghan will spend three more days in New Zealand before ending their 16-day tour across Australia, Tonga and Fiji, and New Zealand on Wednesday.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry took the stage for the closing ceremony of the sporting event founded by Harry a few years back.

Wellington's mayor Justin Lester will welcome them alongside the Prime Minister and other dignitaries.

Harry and Meghan's whirlwind royal tour began in Sydney, Australia with an announcement that they're expecting their first child together.

Just before boarding the flight to New Zealand they chatted to NSW Planning Minister Anthony Roberts, representing the Premier of NSW, and the federal member of Parliament for Berowra, Julian Leeser, representing the Prime Minister.

Governor General Dame Patsy Reddy is hosting the couple at Government House in Wellington. On both occasions both of the royals have worn a poppy to mark the upcoming Remembrance ceremonies.

Just before Bridges was to met the prince a fire alarm went off, forcing the evacuation of the building and leaving dozens of women who were invited to the reception standing outside in the cold in their evening outfits, many holding drinks.

Sophie Hubbard and Hope Watson were among the hundreds of wellwishers who packed the grounds of the National War Memorial in Wellington, the first stop for the royal couple in New Zealand.

Sir Peter summed up the fuzzy feelings Australians have for Harry, describing him as "almost a son of Australia" when he officially welcomed the royal couple at Admiralty House.

"We are proud to be able to join you tonight in celebrating the 125th anniversary of women's suffrage in your country", she said.

Next, the royals will be laying a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Warrior before visiting the newly-unveiled UK War Memorial at the Pukeahu National War Memorial Park.

They were actually a gift from Harry in honor of their baby news, which only adds another special layer to the tribute.

Pictures of Harry's brother, the Duke of Cambridge, playing with the toy during the visit of the Prince of Wales and Diana in 1983 made front pages around the world.
