Royal tour: The adorable moment Meghan Markle gifted leftover cakes to kids at Maranui cafe

The Duchess of Sussex’s generous nature was clear to see on Monday, when she rushed back into Maranui cafe to fetch the leftover cakes she and Prince Harry didn’t eat for waiting schoolchildren.

As soon as she saw several adorable children outside, Meghan quickly ran back towards the Wellington eatery and asked to take all of the slices and cakes that were left on the cafe plates.

When the cafe agreed, the cakes were then brought outside to give to the kids, who proudly smiled with their new sweet treats.

Children from Houghton Valley School who made their way to the famous cafe 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.

While at the cafe, Prince Harry – who is the Commonwealth youth ambassador – and Meghan spent about 30 minutes hearing about mental health projects operating in the country and the positive contribution they are having on young people in New Zealand.

School students later took to the streets to sing a Maori song as they waited for the royal motorcade to leave the cafe, with the Duke and Duchess taking time out of their busy schedule to chat to those who were waiting.

For the event, the Duchess of Sussex wore her trusty Outland ‘Harriet’ jeans for the fourth time on tour.

She also kept warm in a Club Monaco trench coat, ankle boots by Stuart Weitzman and a black turtleneck jumper. 

Meghan wore her hair in a neat ponytail, before she later changed into her Veja trainers to board a helicopter.
