Prince Harry speaks Māori as he teases major announcement in New Zealand

Prince Harry is set to make a huge announcement about a new project he is launching in New Zealand.

The Duke of Sussex will appear on New Zealand TV for an exclusive interview in which the Royal will also speak the Māori people's native language too.

The 37 year old dad-of-two also spoke in the tongue to announce the news, as he teased what's to come.

The details will be explained during a chat with presenter Moana Maniapoto on Te Ao with Moana on Māori Television in the country.

Posting a preview of the reveal, the Duke said he will be sharing more on 'new kaupapa'.

Kaupapa is a Māori word not unlike "charity", and literally translates to meaning work that is considered principled and for public good.

Presenter Moana said she hopes Prince Harry's message will "spark a discussion" among Kiwi viewers.

She also teased that the new project has been inspired by Kaitiakitanga, which means guardianship and protection in the English language.

"It's interesting to hear someone who's a royal speak about Māori values, given our history but also given the current debates about having Māori values at the forefront of decision making and relationships," Moana shared.

"We are open to talking to anyone… anything that particularly resonates with our values as Māori – whether we agree or not.

"We talk about the Crown every week," the TV host went on.

"I'm hoping that we will have an interview further down the track to tease out that relationship between Māori and the Crown."

Harry and Meghan made waves down under when they travelled to New Zealand for an official Royal visit back in 2018.

Before that, the prince travelled over in 2015 and quickly became popular with the local people, even managing to learn a Haka dance in 20 minutes.

It is thought that the Duke and Duchess considered whether to emigrate to the country following their departure from the UK and decision to step down as senior members of the Royal family in 2020.

In the end, they settled in Los Angeles, but it is a country and culture close to the couple's hearts.
