A Royal Affair In Mzansi

Who doesn’t love South Africa? We’ve got the perfect weather, great food and lekker people. It’s no wonder the Royal family love visiting our beautiful country, and this visit is no different!

The Royal Tour

Prince Harry and his wife, former Suits actress, now HRH Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, are currently visiting the country on their royal tour with their four-month-old baby boy, Archie. They arrived in Cape Town last week and will be in SA for 10 days as part of the tour.

The Agenda

Kicking off the trip, Prince Harry and the Duchess of Sussex visited the District Six Museum as well as a workshop in Cape Town where children are informed about their rights, and where they are taught different techniques for self-defence. In the days that followed, the royal couple undertook various engagements and on day three of the royal tour, the couple met with Archbishop Desmond Tutu and his wife. During the widely publicized meeting, photographers managed to snap adorable photos of baby Archie, and boy, are we swooning!

Harry then travelled solo to Botswana while Meghan and baby Archie stayed in South Africa, fulfilling more royal duties. After his trip to Botswana, where Harry spent time with some of the local school kids planting trees among other things, he left for Angola and thereafter he will be travelling to Malawi and then he will be heading back to SA to join the lovely Meghan in JHB.

In Solidarity

One of the moments that really stood out on the royal tour thus far, was Meghan’s visit to the place where Uyinene Mrwetyana was brutally raped and murdered. During the visit, Meghan left a yellow ribbon as a tribute to Uyinene and a signal of unity. Meghan is clearly making her own distinctive mark in the royal family but we can’t deny that she reminds us of Princess Diana with her deep-rooted sincerity and undeniable selflessness.

In the final days of the Royal tour, Prince Harry and Meghan will meet with Grace Machel who is the widow of former President Nelson Mandela, whereafter they will be heading back to England.
