The Royal Couple Welcomed To Rotorua With Powerful Haka

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were welcomed to Rotorua with a powerful Haka.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle spent their final day of their tour in Rotorua on New Zealand's North Island.

The royal couple were greeted to the city with a Haka Pōwhiri, or Welcoming Dance, in front of Rotorua's meeting house Te Papaiouru Marae.

The Haka Pōwhiri was performed by the Te Arawa people.

Before the welcoming, Prince Harry and Meghan were gifted feather cloaks, called Korowai, which show they are seen as great leaders.

The colours used were inspired by the Sussex coat of arms, and offered protection for Meghan and her unborn baby.

School children also joined in on the welcome, singing traditional songs to the royal couple.

Prince Harry won over the crowd by delivering a greeting to the eager crowd in Te Reo, the Maori language.

The Duke and Duchess then joined children to visit the natural hot springs around Rotorua, taking in the sights of the Redwoods Tree Walk and Mountain Bike Showcase.
