The couple visited the High Commission of New Zealand in London, where they signed a book of condolence on behalf of the British royal family.

"Our deepest condolences. We are with you", Meghan wrote.

They signed off their message in the book of condolence with the Maori word "arohanui", which means "much love".

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex made an unannounced visit to New Zealand House in London today, to pay tribute to Christchurch terror attack victims.

Meghan wore a pair of earrings given to her by the country's Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern when the Duke and Duchess made an official visit to the country a year ago.

The refresh applies to its Silicone and Leather Cases as well as its extensive range of bands for the Apple Watch hardware. The company has also added a new Smart Battery Case option for iPhone XS owners with the new Pink Sand color option.

The couple joined with Prince William and Kate, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, to issue a statement Friday decrying the attack as "senseless".

Harry and Meghan, who married last May and are expecting their first child this spring, visited New Zealand late past year as part of their Pacific tour, which also included Australia.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex toured New Zealand last October, where they toured hot spots like the iconic Maranui Café, and scenic Abel Tasman National Park. We have all been fortunate to spend time in Christchurch and have felt the warm, open-hearted and generous spirit that is core to its remarkable people.

At eight months pregnant and with no further official royal commitments on the calendar for Meghan Markle, she would have been forgiven for not making any public appearances before the birth of baby Sussex for any reason.

We send our thoughts and prayers to everyone in New Zealand today.

"No person should ever have to fear attending a sacred place of worship", the statement continued.
