Meghan Markle is leaving no stone unturned on her first visit to South Africa with husband Prince Harry and son Archie Harrison. While Harry has proceeded to the interior parts such as Angola and Malawi, Meghan stayed back in Cape Town with baby Archie and has been holding royal engagements ever since. From underprivileged children to first-time mothers, the Duchess of Sussex has been making an impactful presence. Just yesterday, Meghan made a surprise visit to Johannesburg’s Victoria Yards, a place for artisans and craftspeople come together to work and share their creations. 

In a striking navy blue dress, Meghan "had the chance to connect with the children and founders of a phenomenal programme for kids’ development Timbuktu in The Valley". The Duchess also headed to Young Bucks, a small business that makes books from recycled materials. While interacting with locals, Meghan revealed that she also used to teach classes like calligraphy and bookbinding to support her acting ambitions back in the day, reported People

On the visit, Meghan interacted with local denim designer who founded the brand Tshepo which sells custom-made jeans. The designer even handed over an adorable gift to Meghan for baby Archie -- a tiny pair of overalls. Not just that, Meghan had also placed an order for a custom-made pair of jeans a few weeks ago which she personally received from the designer. The Sussex Royal shared pictures of these visit and in picture no 4 we can see Meghan receiving the adorable gift for baby Archie.

While in Johannesburg today, The Duchess of Sussex visited Victoria Yards, which celebrates the power of community, bringing local artisans and “makers” together to rebuild, support and learn from each other on a holistic level. It was an exceptional afternoon where The Duchess had the chance to connect with the children and founders of the phenomenal programme for kids’ development Timbuktu in The Valley. She was also struck by the local denim designer who founded eponymous brand Tshepo who shared this info about the logo for his line: “The crown on my jeans represents the three ladies who raised me. Enjoy wearing this crown.” Such a beautiful and touching sentiment! Artists, artisans, sculptors, metal workers and carpenters are all part of the fabric of Victoria Yards, but it also utilizes the power of The DICE programme which supports several other local organisations in their work with marginalised youth and women. These include: 94 Colours (run by The Duchess’ guides for the day, Hector and Sibusiso), CDP (a development programme for young unemployed and marginalised women that provides training to start creative enterprises), Enke (rebuilds the confidence and self-belief of unemployed youth through training and practical experience), 26’10 South (an architecture firm designing a local youth centre) and ReimagiNation (works with local secondary school students to create a social and creative enterprising mindset). Stay tuned for more updates from this special afternoon... #RoyalVisitSouthAfrica

While at Victoria Yards in Johannesburg this afternoon, The Duchess of Sussex had the opportunity to learn more about the importance of, and how to enable a ‘wellbeing economy’ thanks to Co-Director of the Maker’s Valley Partnership, Simon Sizwe. Simon was awarded a full scholarship to attend the Young African Leaders Initiative programme initiated by President Obama, and he explained that by investing in the overall well-being of a community and its people, and focusing on that economy, you can enrich everyone for a better quality of life. She also met with the owners of Sobae Frozen, an entrepreneurial duo who created their small business as a solution to food waste, creating vegan sorbet from unused fruit from Victoria Yards. At the end of her visit, The Duchess was moved by the original poetry of Belita Andre, the winner of the Poetry Grandslam. In her reading she said: “The Maker’s Valley is a social and enterprise hub, a wave between my corner of the world and yours. Insisting that beyond the anchors of survival. How to make sure that everyone gets to shore, pass around an ocean of stars, not because our sleepless nights are equal but because our dreams are.”  #RoyalVisitSouthAfrica
