Meghan Markle reconnects with her feminism roots - Nairobi

Last night in Sydney, the Duke of Sussex sported one of his go-to looks - a navy blazer and pants, teamed with a white shirt and baby blue tie.

In her first speech of the 16-day tour - and her first as a royal - Meghan spoke about recognising the "vital" right of women and girls in developing countries to be educated.

Meghan concluded her powerful speech by quoting Kate Sheppard, a prominent figure in the women's suffrage movement in New Zealand.

"Because, yes, women's suffrage is about feminism", she added, "but feminism is about fairness".

Harry accepted the Badge in Gold, the Royal New Zealand Returned and Services Association's (RNZRSA) highest award, in recognition of his work to improve the lives of veterans and their families.

Tomorrow the couple will head to Auckland, where they will attend an evening reception hosted by the Prime Minister at the Auckland War Memorial Museum.

After welcoming the assembled dignitaries, Meghan offered a formal greeting in te reo Māori.

The couple charmed Kiwis yesterday, whether from a simple hug at the airport or from Meghan's speech to guests at last night's function at Government House which was met with thunderous applause.

Although the tour is almost two weeks in now, the enthusiasm hasn't waned among Kiwi fans, with roars erupting as the royals arrived at their first public event in the country.

During their royal tour, Harry was talking to crowds gathered at Abel Tasman National Park. Meghan immediately pinned it to her Karen Walker trench coat.

In one recording, Meghan recalls the "surreal day" she and Prince Harry went to Buckingham Palace to meet with his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, and select a tiara to complete her bridal ensemble.

"It felt really incredible, it felt really good to see her put it on", Alexandra said.
