Two 10-year-olds who waited hours for a glimpse of Harry and Meghan as they arrived in New Zealand got more than they bargained for when the Duke and Duchess of Sussex agreed to pose for a picture.

Prince Harry said in speech for the closing ceremony of his Invictus Games that the secret of success for the athletes is to "accept mental health is the real key to recovery".

The super-extra gown that Lady Diana wore when she Wednesday Prince Charles in 1981 inspired a decade of puff-sleeved wedding dresses, while Kate Middleton's iconic 2011 Alexander McQueen dress brought long sleeves and lace back into bridal fashion.

Seeing as though the Duke and Duchess have been in nearly non-stop work mode since beginning their overseas tour, it's nice to hear that they got the chance to have a low-key night during their trip.

Another competitor acknowledged at the ceremony was New Zealander, George Nepata, the first tetraplegic to compete at Invictus.

The royal couple have received a warm welcome upon their arrival in New Zealand today.

The official welcome ceremony took place on the lawns of Government House - the residence of the Governor-General Dame Patsy Reddy.

In a speech about the right to vote, Meghan said the women who fought for the move were "universally admired".

"Both Prince Harry and Meghan have brought a real gift here to Sydney and we hope to see them again", he said.

Both Harry and Meghan laid fern fronds on the Tomb of the Unknown Warrior, then laid a wreath before heading into the building.

Harry's wedding outfit, including the distinctive frockcoat uniform made by master tailors on Savile Row, is also on display.

They will also visit Auckland and Abel Tasman National Park.

"During this year's Games in Sydney I've witnessed the most incredible support networks that surround competitors, and I've had the privilege of meeting several of these family and friends", she added.

A small number of protesters chanted "No more war" as the duke and duchess climbed the steps to the memorial which commemorates the 300,000 New Zealanders which served their country.

The tune left Meghan, who is about four months pregnant and has taken medical advice about the Zika virus, in irrepressible giggles.
