    The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are currently on Day 2 of their Royal Tour in South Africa. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, along with four-month-old baby Archie kicked off their 10-day tour of Africa and have been sharing highlights on their tour on Instagram.

    Duke and Duchess’ first official engagement took place just a couple of hours after they landed in Cape Town, it doesn’t seem as though Meghan Markle is too tired. The mum-of-one energetically joined in with 23-year-old local, Lilitha Mazana, as she danced during the royals’ greeting.

    Meghan and Harry began their official tour with a visit to the township Nyanga, known as the “murder capital” of South Africa due to its high homicide rates. The Sussexes were there to meet with The Justice Desk charity, which teaches women how to defend themselves from attacks, but before that they made time to greet everyone who had come out to welcome them.

    As a group of women danced to African music, Lilitha offered a hand to Meghan who, albeit hesitantly at first, joined in with a bit of movin’ and shakin’ of her own.

     

    Day two of #SussexRoyalTour is underway, and The Duke and Duchess have joined young South Africans and @WavesForChange to focus on mental health and take part in ‘surf therapy’.

    Hundreds of young people from Cape Town’s townships meet every week at Monwabisi beach to surf, but also share stories with mentors and talk through the daily challenges they face.
    Their Royal Highnesses were able to hear how the sessions are building trust, confidence, and belonging, and they also got to join in as children took part in ‘power hand’, which teaches them how to keep calm down reflect on strengths.
    While on the beach The Duke and Duchess met @TheLunchBoxFund – which was one of the charities they nominated to benefit from donations following the birth of their son, Archie. Almost 30,000 meals are provided by the charity every day across South Africa, including for three @WavesForChange projects.
    And before they left The Duke and Duchess joined the Commonwealth Litter Programme (CLiP) – which was teaching the surfers about the impact of plastic waste on the ocean.
