After two weeks of touring Australia, Fiji and Tonga, Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan arrived in Wellington for the New Zealand leg of their first international royal tour as a married couple.

The Duke and Duchess flew from Sydney with New Zealand Invictus Games competitors and arrived at the RNZAF Air Movement Terminal around 3pm this afternoon – and we are so excited to welcome them to New Zealand!

Their Royal Highnesses departed Sydney around 10am.

And we aren’t the only ones who’re excited. Keen royal fans waited with signs to welcome the royal couple to our beautiful country.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern along with Wellington mayor Justin Lester and his wife, greeted the royal couple as they got off the plane – holding hands of course.

Could these two be any cuter?

Their Royal Highnesses meeting Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern.

We bet Jacinda and Meghan will get along famously – they both champion women’s empowerment after all!

Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan both wore red poppies on their person.

Duchess Meghan changed her outfit on the plane trip over from Sydney, and is wearing a $1000 coat from Kiwi designer Karen Walker.

She has her long (unbelievably silky – seriously, how do we get hair that silky?) hair back in a chic bun and is wearing a stunning ASOS Maternity black dress.

In the name of equality, let’s not forget Prince Harry’s outfit: everyone’s favourite ginger Prince got off the plane looking chipper but relaxed in a crisp, dark suit. Okay, okay, we’ll admit, there’s nothing too exciting about that.

The pair then took a group photo with Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and the Invictus Games competitors, before travelling by motorcade to Government House.

After their visit to Government House, Harry and Meghan will attend Pukeahu National War Memorial Park for a wreath laying ceremony, and then will attend a reception hosted by the Governor-General of New Zealand to celebrate the 125th anniversary of women’s suffrage.
