The Spinoff Atea's Leonie Hayden tweeted, "I try not to publicly fawn over our PM, not cos I don't respect the hell outta her, I'm just terrified of being wrong about her (politicians gonna politician). But for some reason this image makes me tear up a little."

Another Twitter user, Jess Berentson-Shaw, wrote, "Perhaps one of the features of the image that gives people pause is the subversion of what power is & particularly what it has not been. Here is a woman in power who is hapu. Eurocentric cultural stories of power tell us its [sic] the opposite of power. The visual says wanna bet?".

The prime minister made a speech to members of the Commonwealth during the dinner, held at Buckingham Palace.
