Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have officially embarked on their highly anticipated royal tour of Africa today...

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have had a pretty busy few days as the royal couple were spotted in Rome over the weekend to attend Misha Nonoo's wedding. They've spent the last 24 hours preparing for their first royal tour as a family and now, have safely arrived in Cape Town, South Africa, for the first stretch of their 10-day Africa tour.

Off of their commercial flight via British Airways and straight to work, the pair arrived rested and ready for their first event: a visit to a Justice Desk initiative in Nyanga township.

Upon their arrival, the duo received a vibrant welcome from locals, where they then spent the day speaking to children and adults, who are within the Justice Desk initiative. The NGO (which is supported by the Queen's Commonwealth Trust), teaches children about their rights, all whilst offering self-defense classes, female empowerment training, self-awareness and safety to children.

For the occasion, Prince Harry showed up in a white button-up top and black pants whilst Meghan opted for a black print wrap dress my Mayamiko (a fair trade brand from Malawi) and paired it with black Castañer wedges.

Following their visit to Nyanga, the Duke and Duchess will visit the District Six Museum, where they'll tour the museum, learn more about its history and will meet former residents.

The tour, more specifically Africa, holds a special place in Prince Harry's heart and whilst baby Archie wasn't spotted on the first event of their royal tour, we're certain we'll be seeing him in the next coming 10 days.
