The royal family fans have been drooling over the Duke and Duchess of Sussex Harry and Meghan ever since their wedding. Scroll through to see all of the highlights - and watch out for the wellies.

While the two had never actually met IRL, that changed this week as Markle left Viaduct Harbour during her royal tour of New Zealand.

Harry and Meghan and their respective teams sparred off in Redvale, north of Auckland, after planting trees and dedicating 20 hectares of forest to the Queen's Commonwealth Canopy (QCC) scheme.

The people of Te Arawa gifted them with traditional Maori woven cloaks called korowai, honouring Meghan's future as a mother and female ancestors.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are wrapping up the last day of their 16-day royal tour, where they've made stops in Australia, Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand. During the ceremony, Harry delivered a touching speech where he spoke of the "joys" of meeting "so many young New Zealanders" during their trip.




Meghan, wearing black J Crew jeans and a Karen Walker blazer, led her team to victory after tossing a blue boot about a metre (3.2 feet) further than Harry's red one. Additionally, the Duchess closed her remarks by quoting Kate Sheppard, one of the New Zealand women's suffrage movement's key figures: "All that separates - whether of race, class, creed or sex - is inhuman and must be overcome". Prince Harry and Meghan had earlier taken part in a gumboot-tossing competition with children.

Find out how the New Zealand Prime Minister got involved in the brief but heartwarming exchange.

The duchess's team emerged victorious after she landed her boot a good metre closer to the target than the duke.

When Meghan saw it, her mouth fell open and she was heard saying "Ooh my God" before rushing over to give her a big hug.
