Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's 16-day royal tour of Australia, Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand has finally come to an end, but they made sure to leave their fans Down Under with one final parting gift.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex spent their last day of the tour at the Redwoods Treewalk Rotorua in New Zealand, and at some point during their trail walk, they were able to take some time to snap some beautiful photos.

Harry finally showed off his photography skills as he captured an adorable photo of his wife, who is believed to be about 14 weeks pregnant, cradling her baby bump.

Since the royals aren't permitted to have personal social media accounts, the Kensington Palace shared the snap on their official Instagram account.

In the caption of the photo, the expecting parents shared a message of gratitude to the people of New Zealand, Australia, Fiji, and Tonga.

"Thank you New Zealand for the most wonderful last week of our tour," read the note. "It has been a privilege to meet so many friendly Kiwis. Australia, Fiji, Tonga and NZ - we leave feeling inspired and reminded of how every single one of us can make a difference."

The message also included a quote from Kate Sheppard, a prominent member of New Zealand's women's suffrage: "The rain that refreshes the parched ground, is made up of single drops."

To many royal watchers' surprise, this photo of Meghan isn't Harry's first foray into using the photo and video-sharing platform.

Earlier this week, a photo he took of Abel Tasman National Park from a helicopter was shared as part of Kensington Palace's Instagram story.

"Traveling to the beautiful Abel Tasman National Park," the image was captioned.

Meghan, who is no stranger to Instagram, also got a chance to contribute to the palace's collection of photos. She took a black and white photo of Harry as he rehearsed his speech for the Invictus Games' closing ceremony in Australia.

The duke and duchess have returned home after fulfilling 76 engagements, and while Meghan is expected to take a break, Harry will be going right back to work.

He will visit the Field of Remembrance on November 8 to commemorate the 90th year of the field.
