  • Prince Harry and Meghan Markle board their plane in Tonga to head to Sydney

The Duchess of Sussex, 37, took a sweet photo of her husband, Prince Harry, as they rehearsed their speeches for the Invictus Games' closing ceremony on Saturday.

The exhibition at Windsor Castle opened while Meghan and Harry were on the other side of the world, attending the Invictus Games athletics event for wounded soldiers in Sydney, Australia.

On the eleventh day of her royal tour with Prince Harry, Meghan Markle was treated to song.

The closing ceremony was the final event on the royal couple's official itinerary for their 10-day visit to Sydney, Dubbo, Melbourne and Fraser Island.

On Sunday after touching down in New Zealand, Meghan stepped off the plane wearing in a £35 maternity dress from high-street favourite ASOS.

Meghan, who describes herself as a feminist, was speaking to a group of mainly women guests in Wellington that included Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will head over the Tasman Sea to New Zealand on Sunday, the last stop on their 16-day tour. Both had remembrance poppy pins on their chests. She said Harry responded: "What, waiting around at Government House in the cold?" and the couple both laughed.

There was loud applause as Meghan began a speech in the evening - at a reception celebrating the 125th anniversary of women's suffrage in New Zealand - with the words "tena koutou katoa" ("greetings to all", in Maori).

The royals performed a hongi - or nose rub - with Professor Sciascia and Mrs Higgins as the Royal New Zealand Air Force band played.

By choosing to bring his new wife to Australia for their first major overseas tour, Harry has followed in the footsteps of his parents Prince Charles and Princess Diana.

After the arrival ceremony, their first engagement was a visit to the Pukeahu National War Memorial Park, where they laid a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Warrior.

According to Rebecca English, a royal correspondent for the U.K. Daily Mail newspaper who was aboard the Quantas charter flight at the time, they were "seconds from landing" at Sydney Airport when they suddenly pulled up from the runway.

As well as Wellington, the duke and duchess will also visit Auckland and Rotorua over the next four days.
