Touching moment Meghan Markle spots young fan she once mentored through Instagram

Britain's Prince Harry receives a traditional Maori hongi greeting at a formal powhiri welcoming ceremony in Te Papaiouru, Rotorua, New Zealand October 31, 2018. Kiwi, which is New Zealand's national bird, have become increasingly endangered in recent years, and Meghan and Harry will meet conservationists working to protect the species.

Prince Harry was handed a carved weapon during the visit to Tamatekapua Meeting House in Rotorua in which he gave a speech partially in Maori.

Taking to Instagram, Hannah shared snaps of Meghan's surprised face after seeing her in the crowd as well as the warm hug they shared.

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern made light of the grizzly conditions, describing her country as "the land of the long white cloud where a little bit of rain tends to fall from". 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".

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex met with people in Auckland during a walkabout on the penultimate day of the couple's South Pacific tour.

At their first engagement, they received their first gift for the future baby Sussex as governor-general of Australia Sir Peter Cosgrove and his wife gave the couple a toy kangaroo and its joey along with some Ugg boots.

The kiwi is New Zealand's native bird, but the fact it can not fly means its young have been affected by predators in the wild.

The royal wedding exhibit, which opened October 26 at Windsor Castle, features Meghan's wedding dress, the tiara she wore on loan from the queen, and an older version of Prince Harry's frockcoat uniform of the Household Calvary.
