Watch: Royal couple kick off second day of NZ tour with a cup of tea, chat with mental health workers

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have started the second day of their New Zealand tour with a trip to a famous Wellington cafe for tea and a chat with Kiwi mental health workers.

The royal couple arrived at Maranui Cafe shortly after 10am where they met with young people from a number of mental health projects operating in New Zealand.

After ordering a tea and water, their royal couple sat down with workers from Helpline, Voices of Hope and other organisations.

During the chat, Prince Harry talked about the value of normalising the conversation about mental health.

He also asked how much of a part social media played in the number of young people experiencing symptoms.

After this morning's chat, the royal couple will head to Abel Tasman National Park to visit some of the conservation initiatives managed by the Department of Conservation.
