New Zealand’s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern says Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's royal visit to New Zealand could cost taxpayers around $1 million, using past royal visits as a rough guide.

The dates for the royal tour were revealed last night to be October 28 to November 1.

Ardern believes the benefits to the New Zealand economy will be worth the cost.

She says the exposure from international media around the royals visit will be beneficial to the country and hopes that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have a "special" time here.

The Duke and Duchess will arrive in Wellington on Sunday October 28 and will visit Abel Tasman National Park the next day.
