The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were welcomed by New Zealand High Commissioner Sir Jerry Mateparae as they visited New Zealand House in London.

The Queen asked Meghan Markle and Prince Harry to represent the British royal family as the couple signed a book of condolence on behalf of the Royal Family, writing: “We are with you.”
