On the North Shore this morning, they will dedicate a 20-hectare area of native bush to the Queen's Commonwealth Canopy, and learn about its ecological importance from local iwi.

They will then plant a tree each and join children from the 'Trees in Survival' group in a gumboot-throwing contest.

Afterwards, they will visit the charity organisation Pillars, which supports children who have parents in prison.

As a wedding present to the pair, the government has donated $5000 to the charity.

At 4pm the couple will do a public walkabout at Viaduct Harbour.

Finally, they will visit the War Memorial Museum and meet again with the Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern.
