Ro­torua

Australian Women’s Weekly NZ - - COVER STORY -

For their fi­nal day in New Zealand, the clouds parted and the roy­als fi­nally got a gor­geous sunny day in Ro­torua, with in­ter­na­tional me­dia stat­ing that the city had “stolen the show”. Harry led the Te Aroha wa­iata at Te Pa­paiouru Marae, his once-timid te reo pro­nun­ci­a­tion now strong and con­fi­dent. The fi­nal stop on the roy­als’ 16-day Aus­tralasian tour was a visit to the Red­woods Tree­walk in Ro­torua. Af­ter walk­ing along the el­e­vated path­ways in Whakare­warewa For­est, the cou­ple walked through the area at ground level (far right), stop­ping at a look­out to ad­mire a pic­turesque blue pool ringed by ponga ferns. It was a beau­ti­ful and scenic end to their tour, and the pair seemed wist­ful about leav­ing. As he and Meghan left the for­est, Prince Harry was heard telling lo­cals, “Bye guys, en­joy this heaven.”
