Celebrations of the 125th Anniversary of Universal female Suffrage: the Royal Couple at New Zealand

Date:

The newly married royal couple is on their vacations in Australia, and their final spot was at New Zealand to attend the female suffrage anniversary. Since New Zealand was the first to give women their rights to vote, this day is celebrated every year with utmost excitement. And this one was exceptional as it was the 125th anniversary and the Duchess of Sussex witnessed this event. She also threw light on why it is an important event and how it is related to feminism and fairness.

The Royal Highness Markle dressed in a traditional Maori outfit congratulated New Zealand for being the first country to bring female suffrage and that took 125 years long back. She stated that suffrage did not just allow women to cast her vote but it brought the idea of feminism and equality among the sexes. She stated that Suffrage is not simply about the right to vote but also about what that represents: the basic human right of being able to participate in the choices for your future and that of your community. She ended her speech by saying ‘Bravo New Zealand!’ for this accomplishment, and that is universally admired.

Markle also greeted the prime minister, Jacinda Ardern in the Maori language and addressed the other people with a hongi. The couple also practiced the custom of offering ferns to the tombs at the National War Memorial Park and saw the UK War Memorial with Pohutakawa trees and it’s intertwined trunks of the Royal Oak. The couple was dressed in black, one of the national colors of New Zealand. Powhiri, the ceremony which involves dancing and singing was also organized in the Government House in Wellington. The New Zealand Defense force members performed traditional Haka for the royal couple.

Markle and Harry will stay in New Zealand for four days to visit Auckland and Rotorua. Afterward, they will head to the UK on Thursday.
