She was so enthralled by the moment that she took a photo of Harry practicing on stage. The photo was posted through the Kensington Palace Twitter account.
It was the first image shared by the Duchess ever since she became a Royal. It was also the first image for her fans since she deleted her Twitter and Instagram accounts in January.
She deleted her social media accounts after her engagement to Harry in December 2017. The Royal couple spent their day in Wellington attending a traditional Māori welcome ceremony.
They also got to greeting excited fans and children. Meghan also gave her third speech on the Royal tour, celebrating New Zealand’s 125th anniversary of women’s suffrage.
During her heartfelt speech, she said that the country's women's suffrage movement had "paved the way" for women and minorities around the globe. New Zealand became the first country in the world to give women the right to vote in parliamentary elections in 1893.
