Throughout their royal tour of Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, and Tonga, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have had lots of adorable encounters with some of their youngest admirers. And those moments have shown royal fans a preview of what the two will be like as parents. After all, they announced they were expecting their first child at the beginning of the trip.

During a stop in Rotorua, New Zealand, Harry and Meghan greeted well-wishers in the crowds. When one toddler got through the railings, Harry took action. He grabbed the child by the shoulders and maneuvered him around, asking the crowd, “Whose child is this?” before directing him in the right direction.

At another point during their walkabout, Meghan had her own sweet moment with a child who got outside the barrier, giving a little girl, two-year-old Catalina Rivera, a big hug.

Their stop was their last day of their royal tour of the Oceania region, which took place over 16 days packed with events and meetings. While in Rotorua today, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex met with the Maori people at Te Papaiouru Marae and received traditional cloaks during a "powhiri" welcome ceremony. They also visited a kiwi chick hatchery and explored a redwood walk. The happy couple has since returned to London.
