Next, Prince Harry and Meghan will get to name two kiwi chicks as they get up close and personal with the nation's cultural icons at the National Kiwi Hatchery at Rainbow Springs. Prince Harry echoed those sentiments and also stressed the importance of mental health awareness.

To top off their final day in New Zealand, Harry and Meghan took a stroll through a 117-year-old redwood forest, climbing a 700 meter (2296 foot) long rope walkway suspended though the redwood treetops.
