Meghan Markle rushes back into cafe and brings leftover cakes for schoolchildren waiting outside for her
When Meghan saw the children outside, she immediately ran back towards the Wellington eatery and asked to take all of the slices and cakes that were left on the cafe plates.
Meghan Markle has always come across as someone who adores children, just like her husband Prince Harry. And the Duchess of Sussex let her benevolent nature shine through on Monday when she rushed back into Maranui cafe to fetch the leftover cakes from the cafe and gave it to some of the schoolchildren who had lined up there. Reports say that as soon as Meghan saw the children outside, she immediately ran back towards the Wellington eatery and asked to take all of the slices and cakes that were left on the cafe plates.
Once the cafe agreed and packed up all the cakes demanded by the Duchess, they were then brought outside to give to the children, who proudly smiled with their new sweet treats. Receiving the cakes were several starry-eyed schoolchildren, who had previously lined up on the street outside the cafe hoping to catch a glimpse of the royal couple. The children were from Houghton Valley School, and they had made their way to the famous cafe and there, they all got swept up in the activities, as the Duke and Duchess stopped to chat with many of them. "They asked us what our names were and also they were really nice and just talked normally to us," one of the children told TV NZ. "My legs were shaking so much," another added.
The Maranui Cafe, which is like one of the institutions in the area, put on a pregnancy-friendly spread for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex on Monday morning. At the cafe, Meghan and Harry spent about 30 minutes hearing about mental health projects operating in the country and its positive contribution on young people in New Zealand. For the event, Meghan was clad in her trusty Outland 'Harriet' jeans for the fourth time on tour. She teamed it up with a Club Monaco trench coat, ankle boots by Stuart Weitzman and a black turtleneck jumper.
As per reports, the couple is expected to travel to Abel Tasman National Park on New Zealand's South Island after their cafe trip, where the pregnant Duchess and Harry are supposed to take part in an hour-long hike and talk to conservation staff. After their visit to the wilderness reserve, the Duke and Duchess are scheduled to attend a beach barbecue and tree planting with local students. They will, in total, spend four days in New Zealand before flying back home to their Place in London.
