Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has reportedly met in secret with the Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle during her UK visit.

ABC news royal correspondent Omid Scobie wrote on Twitter earlier today that Ms Ardern had a private meeting at Kensington Palace in-between government appointments.

Mr Scobie said he spoke with Ms Ardern, who praised the royal couple, saying "they really care about the work they do, they take their service seriously and I have a lot of respect for that".

"Meghan, says a source, 'was pleased to have the chance to thank the PM for the wonderful hospitality [she and Harry] received from the people of New Zealand last year.'"

The royals were in New Zealand in late October last year, and met with Ms Ardern during the visit.
