Meghan’s moves

Not long after touching down in Cape Town, the Duchess of Sussex shook off any travel weariness by dancing with the locals.

There were whoops and cheers as Meghan joined in with the traditional dancing on their first public engagement of the tour.

She later made an impromptu speech, saying “I am here with you as a mother, as a wife, as a woman, as a woman of colour and as your sister.”

Harry’s tribute to mum

In what was a poignant scene, Prince Harry evoked memories of his late mother Princess Diana when he retraced her footsteps through an Angolan minefield.

Harry was joined de-mining workers from The Halo Trust, the same charity his mum was helping during her visit in 1997.

The Duke of Sussex had split off from Harry and Archie for a few days to visit projects and initiatives in Angola, Botswana and Malawi, before rejoining them in Johannesburg in South Africa.

Meghan’s surprise Skype call

Cementing her popularity with local communities on this Royal Tour, there was huge jubilation when Meghan popped up on a large TV screen via Skype to take part in a discussion about female empowerment at a school in Malawi.

On this Royal Tour, Meghan has proved she’s a strong proponent of sustainable fashion.
