The royal tour continues in New Zealand, with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry attending a flurry of events before they return home later this week.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex arrived in Auckland, New Zealand, and began greeting all of the fans who'd turned out to meet them on Tuesday. And during the walkabout near Auckland's Viaduct Harbour, Meghan reunited with someone very special.

According to royal commentator Omid Scobie on Twitter, Meghan had the chance to reunite with a fan she used to message on Instagram, prior to deleting social media at the start of 2018. Per Scobie,"Today also saw Meghan reunited with a fan she used to chat to via Instagram DMs. @1NewsNZ captured the moment @bellisariho met the Duchess face to face (and gave a letter).' She would tell me to do well at university and encourage me to be myself,' Hannah says of their messages." If you've heard anything more adorable than that today, then I need to hear it:


The fact that Meghan took the time to message a fan, and to encourage her to study, is beyond sweet. Now that Meghan is a member of the royal family, her life is extremely different, but as Scobie's tweet proves, the Duchess still makes time for all of her fans.

During the walkabout, Meghan and Harry also had the chance to meet with several other young fans, all of whom were ecstatic to meet the Duke and Duchess:


For the occasion, Meghan wore a custom Brandon Maxwell dress, a Burberry trench coat, and her favored Stuart Weitzman Legend pumps:
