The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been welcomed to New Zealand with a traditional Maori greeting.
They performed a hongi, where they touched noses and foreheads with Maori elders, as they arrived in the country - the last stop on their 16-day tour.

Harry and Meghan were greeted with a powhiri - a ceremony involving singing and dancing - in Wellington.

The event, at Government House, also saw members of the New Zealand Defence Force perform a haka for the couple.

They were greeted at the airport by Prime Minister Jacinda Arden, having flown in from Australia with the Kiwi Invictus team.

The pair then made their way to the residence of Governor-General of New Zealand Patsy Reddy for the reception.
