Photographs of Duke and Duchess of Sussex on their first overseas tour as a family

Prince Harry, Meghan Markle and baby Archie have begun their first overseas tour as a family.

The Duke and Duchess kicked off their engagements with a visit to Cape Town’s Nyanga township, where they visited an initiative run by human rights organisation Justice Desk that educates children about their rights and empowers young girls through self-defense classes. As well as talking to the children and youth workers, the couple danced and tried their hand at drawing, before Meghan gave a speech condemning gender-based violence.

She told the children: “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 royals also visited the District Six Museum, commemorating the 60,000 people who were displaced when the area was designated “whites-only” under the apartheid regime.

On Tuesday morning, the couple headed to Monwabisi Beach to see the work of Waves for Change, a charity that teams up with surfers to provide mental health support for youngsters.

The royal tour will last for ten days in total. Meghan will spend most of that time in and around Cape Town and Johannesburg, while Prince Harry will travel alone to Malawi, Botswana and Angola.
