Meghan's debut trip outside the United Kingdom and Ireland as a duchess was headline news across the world - and the interest rose further when Kensington Palace announced she was pregnant, on the eve of the 16-day visit to Australia, Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand.
Rain, wind and a distant natural disaster didn't seem to dampen the enthusiasm of New Zealanders who turned out to see Prince Harry and wife Meghan on Tuesday.
While it's unclear whether this wardrobe moment was intentional or not, photographs revealed Markle's skirt to be see-through in the light, with the separation of the pleats in the sheer fabric revealing that the Duchess was wearing a bodysuit under her skirt.
The duke and duchess visited the Redwoods Tree Walk - their 76th and final engagement of the 16-day visit.
There were also weird gifts, with one woman offering Meghan a bunch of carrots on Bondi Beach in Sydney, prompting the duchess to turn to the duke and say: "We got some veggies!"
