Today, Prince Harry and Meghan got the opportunity to visit the children who have directly benefited from the extra funding.
Prince Harry and wife Meghan spoke with people working in the mental-health field and encountered a flightless native bird as they continued their tour of New Zealand on Monday.
Later in the day, the newlyweds will head to Abel Tasman National Park, which sits at the northern end of the South Island.
She was seen at a handful of family events over the summer, including Prince Harry's wedding and Trooping The Colour but has been enjoying time away from official duties since Prince Louis' birth in April.
In her two-minute address at a reception celebrating the 125th anniversary of New Zealand becoming the first country in the world to grant women the right to vote, Meghan issued a "bravo" to the nation for its history-making move.
"Because yes, women's suffrage is about feminism, but feminism is about fairness", Meghan continued.
"The achievements of the women of New Zealand who campaigned for their right to vote, and were the first in the world to achieve it, are universally admired".
But what we also know (and seretly love) about her is that she does not pay much attention to Royal protocol, whatsoever.
He said: "I think Harry's technique was better, it was straight forward instead of going at an angle".
Better protect your precious, Prince Harry!
Later the Duchess doted on a group of girls holding a sign saying, "We're skipping school for you".
"We wanted to give the royal couple a taste of rural New Zealand, and there's nothing more quintessentially Kiwi than a gumboot throw!" he said.
Luckily, Meghan and Harry are old pros when it comes to the gruesome and unexpected - they were looking at prosthetic limbs together before the leaves even turned brown!
Meghan and Harry are also expecting their first child in 2019.
