A young royal fan who held up pictures of him meeting the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge completed the set when Harry and Meghan posed for pictures in Auckland.

Max Henry, 10, was among the hundreds of well-wishers who braved the showers to see the royals on their last city walkabout on their 16-day tour.

The youngster met William and Kate when they visited New Zealand in 2014 and held laminated copies of photos, hoping to catch the Sussexes’ eyes.

He said: “I said ‘look who I met, it’s your brother’ and he said ‘oh yeah’.”

Harry and Meghan then posed for pictures with Max, with mother Vicci Chawe saying: “They’re just lovely people.”

Mother Shantelle said: “It was really sweet. Harry could see she was (uncomfortable) standing at the front of the barriers and he asked her to come through the railings to his side.

“Zoey had a little toy to give, a native New Zealand Tui bird finger puppet, and he asked, ‘would you like to give that to me or to my wife?’

“And she pointed to Meghan. Meghan then came over and crouched down to talk to Zoey and asked, ‘is that a gift for my baby?’ and graciously accepted the puppet. She told her she would keep it for the baby and name the toy after Zoey.”

As Harry and Meghan entered the car to leave the walkabout, Liam Welby shouted “Gingers rule!”

Speaking afterwards, the 21-year-old said: “He’s probably the best ginger I’ve seen apart from myself in the mirror.”
