Recap - Royal visit day three: Harry and Meghan take on Auckland

During their visit today they visit Te Papaiouru Marae, for a formal pōwhiri and lunch.

Prince Harry and Meghan will get to name two kiwi chicks as they get up close and personal with the nation's cultural icons at the National Kiwi Hatchery at Rainbow Springs.

They'll also give much-deserved attention to a programme designed to save the endangered birds and will be briefed on efforts to do so.

Afterwards the royal pair will then check out the Redwoods Treewalk, a 700m walkway of suspension bridges between 117-year-old Redwood trees.

That event will be a chance for the Royal couple to find out more about the significance of mountain biking to the local economy and New Zealand's tourism and recreation sectors.

They will wrap up the day with a public walkabout at the Government Gardens.

The pair will depart New Zealand tomorrow morning.
