Duke and Duchess of Sussex Given Traditional Welcome in New Zealand

SYDNEY Ė Prince Harry and Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, arrived in New Zealand on Sunday aboard a Royal New Zealand Air Force plane from Sydney.

Kensington Palace tweeted a photo of the royal pair with members of New Zealandís Invictus Games team, whom they traveled with, as well as Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and Wellington mayor Justin Lester who greeted them upon their arrival on the capitalís tarmac.

The Duke and Duchess visited Government House, where they were received by Governor General Patsy Reddy, Kensington Palace tweeted.

There they were greeted representatives of the Maori community during a traditional powhiri welcome ceremony with a haka dance and hongi, which is done by each person pressing the nose and forehead to the other.

Later, at Pukeahu National Memorial Park, the pair laid a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Warrior, according to state media Radio New Zealand and Kensington Palace.

There the Duke also received New Zealandís highest military honor, the Badge in Gold, for his work with injured veterans, before they mixed with the huge crowds.

The Duke and Duchess are to visit Abel Tasman National Park as well as the cities of Auckland and Rotorua before they leave on Wednesday.

The couple, who are expecting their first child, are wrapping up a three-week tour, which has also taken them to Australia, Fiji and Tonga.
