Meghan Markle and Prince Harry threw boots in New Zealand for a poignant reason.

According to People, the royal couple bonded with local children from environmental education group “Trees of Survival” on Tuesday by joining them in a welly wanging contest.

The objective of the game is to throw a Wellington boot, which is referred to as Wellies by New Zealanders. The boots should be thrown as far as possible. The children cheered after Markle managed to prove just how strong she is and actually won the competition.

Following her win, Markle was rewarded with a rainboot-shaped trophy. She and Prince Harry were also given a small pair of green and white boots for their baby. Markle and Prince Harry are expecting their first child together, and they will welcome the infant someone in the spring of 2019.

In related news, before Markle and Prince Harry participated in the game, they were greeted with a powhiri, a traditional Maori welcoming ceremony. They also dedicated a 50-acre area of native bush on the North Shore to the Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy.

During the ceremony, the Duke of Sussex was photographed holding an umbrella over his wife’s head while the rain poured. After their engagement, the royal couple performed a traditional practice of hongi with the members of the QEII Trust.

Prince Harry and Markle are still embarking on their royal tour together, but it will soon wrap up on Oct. 31. The couple previously spent a couple of days in Australia, and they also visited Fiji and the Kingdom of Tonga. After their trip to Tonga, they flew back to Australia to attend the closing ceremony of the Invictus Games.

They flew to New Zealand last weekend and will return to Australia before flying back to London on Wednesday. Upon their arrival in London, Prince Harry and Markle are expected to embark on more official engagements as a married couple. They tied the knot on May 19 at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle and have not stopped with making public appearances since then.
