I just so adored the Duchess on how she used te reo in her opening speech and her support for woman’s suffrage.
This a report from the NZ Herald.
The Duchess of Sussex has charmed Kiwis – comforting emotional fans yesterday afternoon before impressing guests at a formal reception where she started her speech with a few words of te reo.
Meghan was welcomed at Government House last night with thunderous applause as she stepped up to speak about women’s suffrage.
“Tēnā koutou katoa,” she said before thanking Governor-General Dame Patsy Reddy for inviting Prince Harry and herself to the event.
“We are proud to be able to join you tonight, in celebrating the 125th anniversary of women’s suffrage in your country.”
