THE DUKE and Duchess of Sussex have hit the ground running on their first tour of Africa.
Touching down in South Africa for the first leg of their trip, the royal couple met with locals in the Nyanga Township and visited the Justice Desk Project in Cape Town which teaches young girls about their rights, self awareness and female empowerment.
Speaking to those gathered in the Nyanga Township, the Duchess of Sussex said: “And just on one personal note, may I just say that while I am here with my husband as a member of The Royal Family, I want you to know that for me I am here with you as a mother, as a wife, as a woman, as a woman of colour and as your sister.”
Harry and Meghan’s tour will focus on community, grassroots, leadership, women’s and girl’s rights, mental health, HIV/AIDS and the environment.
Today they continued their trip with a visit to Waves for Change, an organisation that focuses on mental health, where they took part in “surf therapy”.
