Prince Harry and Meghan Markle began their much-talked about royal Southern Africa tour along with their five-month-old son Archie Harrison. As part of their first leg of the tour, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex visited Cape Town and learned about the women and children of the region and the empowerment missions that are being practiced. While this is Prince Harry's nth visit to South Africa, it is a first for Meghan and baby Archie. Taking to their official Instagram account SussexRoyal, a series of pictures showed Meghan and Harry having a splendid time with the locals.

From sampling native food to dancing with the young and old, Meghan and Harry seem to be soaking in the love and warmth of the local people. While addressing the people, Meghan said, "And just on one personal note, 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." 

The first day in Cape Town was packed with numerous visits including one to the Mbokodo project which provides self-defense classes and female empowerment workshops to young girls who are overcoming major traumas. While at the workshop, Prince Harry also lovingly set Meghan's ponytail right before putting a hand on her shoulder to pose for a photo. 

Take a look at Meghan and Harry's first day of in Cape Town: 

 
 
 
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

South Africa After months of planning, Their Royal Highnesses, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex arrived in South Africa today for their official Royal Tour of Southern Africa - focusing on community, grassroots leadership, women’s and girls’ rights, mental health, HIV/AIDS and the environment. Their first stop was to the incredible Justice Desk Project which works to make women and children safer in Nyanga. It’s an issue of vital importance in South Africa and across the globe, their Royal Highnesses wanted to learn first-hand about the issues people face and the work being done on the ground. One of the workshops Their Royal Highnesses saw was the Mbokodo project which provides self-defense classes and female empowerment workshops to young girls who are overcoming major traumas. This project's powerful motto is "wathint' abafazi wathint' imbokodo" which means "you strike a woman; you strike a rock" “And just on one personal note, 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.” – The Duchess of Sussex @TheJusticeDesk Project is supported by the @Queens_Commonwealth_Trust and works with community leaders in Nyanga, with the firm belief that if you can change the mindset of a community, you can change the mindset of a country. #SussexRoyalTour #RoyalVisitSouthAfrica Photo ©️PA images / SussexRoyal - video SussexRoyal

The second half of Day one for #SussexRoyalTour brought Their Royal Highnesses to The District Six Museum and the Homecoming Centre who are re-building their local community in Cape Town. The Duke and Duchess had a first hand look and understanding of how much of this diverse community was destroyed, with people subjected to forced relocation during the apartheid era. At the Homecoming centre The Duke and Duchess were treated to food cooked by local women that showcased the wonderful variety of recipes - and the importance of cooking to bring communities together - a topic The Duchess feels strongly about (just like Together, the cookbook from the women of The Hubb Community Kitchen which The Duchess supported this time last year). • Their Royal Highnesses have had an amazing first day in South Africa and are incredibly grateful for the wonderful welcome they have received. Thank You! Stay tuned for more updates and behind the scenes moments on tour! #RoyalVisitSouthAfrica Photo ©️ SussexRoyal / Omid Scobie / PA images
