Jacinda & Meghan

Australian Women’s Weekly NZ - - COVER STORY -

Meghan, speak­ing at an event cel­e­brat­ing our suf­fragette past, demon­strated just what a su­perb pub­lic speaker she is, start­ing her speech with a ten­ta­tive “tēnā koutou ka­toa”, which was cheered by the au­di­ence at Gov­ern­ment House. She spoke pas­sion­ately about how fem­i­nism is about fair­ness, and in­cluded a quote by Kate Shep­pard in her con­clu­sion. Prime Min­is­ter Jacinda Ardern, whom the pair had met ear­lier, beamed at Meghan and later was heard telling the Duchess that her speech had been “per­fect”. Jacinda spent a lot of time with the Roy­als, in­clud­ing at black-tie events and walk­ing in Auck­land’s Viaduct, where the Prime Min­is­ter helped col­lect gifts given to the cou­ple.
