The Dancing Duchess

The Duke and Duchess have arrived in South Africa for their 10-day Royal Tour. 

The Duchess made an impromptu speech to the crowd while standing on a tree stump. She said, “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.”

Royal Tour: The Duke and Duchess of Sussex in Africa 2019

Prince Harry, Meghan Markle and four-month-old Archie have begun their first Royal Tour together as a family, and a packed 10-day itinerary awaits them.

It’s likely to be a chance for the world to get a first official glimpse of baby Archie in public.

But unlike the pomp and ceremony of traditional Royal Tours, the complexion of this visit will be more “grassroots”.

Rather than dressing up for state banquets, the pair will be walking around townships and delivering talks to local communities.

In doing so, Harry and Meghan will be promoting issues close to their hearts such as conservation, mental health, socio-economic development and female empowerment.

Harry and Meghan to ‘hit the ground running’

On Monday, The Express reported Buckingham Palace sources as saying Harry and Meghan want to “hit the ground running”.

It has also been revealed that Meghan has added an extra engagement to her itinerary, and will visit the Mothers2Mothers initiative in Cape Town on Wednesday.

Mothers2Mothers is a project which supports mothers who live with HIV.

One royal spokesperson said the trip is an opportunity to “to highlight many of the causes they have been involved with for many years [and] demonstrate a modern UK-Africa partnership in action.”

The full itinerary has been organised by the UK’s Foreign and Commonwealth Office, but it’s understood the Duke and Duchess have been closely involved with the planning and research.

After landing in Cape Town on Sunday, they will head straight to a township to oversee a workshop that teaches children about their rights and also provides self-defense classes and female empowerment training to young girls.

There they will deliver speeches on gender violence.

South Africa has endured a spate of gender-related violence lately following the murders of several women.

The country’s President Cyril Ramaphosa has described the situation as a “national emergency”.

The Duke and Duchess will attend around five engagements per day, so there will be limited opportunity for sight-seeing and R&R.

Prince Harry splits off

From Cape Town, Prince Harry will head to Angola, Botswana and Malawi while Meghan stays in South Africa with Archie.

Meghan will continue to pursue a busy schedule of her own, which is expected to be largely private, while Harry heads north.

In Botswana, Harry will catch up with his charity Sentebale and visit a project they have been undergoing in Kasane.

In Angola, he will retrace his late mother’s footsteps from 1997 when Princess Diana visited an active minefield as part of a project with the Halo Trust.

Finally, in Malawi, Harry will call in at a girls’ educational centre before visiting Liwonde National Park which he will dedicate to the Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy.

After his solo three-country jaunt, Harry will be reunited with Meghan and Archie in Johannesburg where they will attend further public engagements before concluding their tour.
