Maori welcoming ceremony held for Harry and Meghan in Rotorua

Harry and Meghan will head back to the United Kingdom on Thursday after a marathon 16-day tour which took in four countries and saw the couple meet koalas and crowds in Sydney, try their hand at welly-wanging in New Zealand and take in traditional culture in Fiji.

The former "Suits" star explains in "A Royal Wedding: The Duke and Duchess of Sussex" how her fiancé wanted her bridal bouquet to include a personal touch: flowers from their Kensington Palace residence.

The duchess's jaw dropped when she spotted Ms Sergel, who had been waiting in the rain holding a big sign emblazoned with the words "It's Hannah from Instagram" at the Viaduct Harbour during the royal couple's trip to New Zealand.

"There wasn't too much of a rivalry", Isabella Iti, 10, said after the gumboot toss.

And yet Pochettino insisted he was happy with the performance, despite the frustration of the result and the error that brought it.

Ardern was also on-hand to meet the Duke and Duchess at the Wellington airport upon their arrival in the country earlier in the day.

"I watched a lot of interviews and just thought she was an unbelievable person and human being", she said. Trevor Maxwell, a local district councilman, quipped that he should not take the ceremonial weapon to the upcoming game between New Zealand and England's rugby teams on November 11.

Meghan wore a Stella McCartney dress, but then added a traditional Maori korowai, or cloak, on top of the dress when she attended the powhiri.

Maybe Harry was originally wearing it, but begrudgingly loaned it to his wife because she underestimated how cold a Redwood forest in New Zealand could be and insisted she'd be fine in her flimsy Givenchy jumper before they left for the day. "When I first saw her I cried". Both Harry and Meghan had two children in their teams and Meghan's red team were named the victors beating the Duke's attempt by about three feet. They announced that she was expecting the couple's first child on the first day of their tour. In Markle's speech, she talked about how inspired she was by the competitors in the week-long event (founded by her husband in 2014) for wounded, injured, and sick servicemen and women.
