The royal tour of Meghan Markle through Africa has officially begun.
On Monday morning the Duchess of Sussex (38) and Prince Harry arrived in Cape Town with baby Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor; the parents first appeared later without the 5-month-old Archie in Nyanga.
For the occasion, Meghan Markle chose a black and white printed wrap dress that was perfectly suited for the first day of her tour: the Dalitso dress from fair trade company Mayamiko, which was produced and made in Malawi.
The causal look costs only £ 69 (around $ 85) but is already sold out online.
Meghan combined the look with her favorite black espadrille wedges from Castañer ($ 120) and shaped her hair in a slim and simple low ponytail.
She could be seen dancing and talking with the locals, giving a speech and even wearing a bracelet with red beads with the text “Justice.”
During the tour, the royal family is expected to address issues of violence against women in the area. “Harry and Meghan will start their tour in a township in Cape Town, where the royal family will watch a workshop that teaches children about their rights, self-awareness and safety and that offers self-defense lessons and training for female empowerment to young girls in the community,” According to a statement.
The low-key look of Meghan Markle is just the start of a parade of outfits. The Duchess and her family are expected to attend 35 engagements in just 10 days during their extremely busy royal tour through South Africa.
Perhaps her next look will be some of her own designs from the recently launched clothing line, to the benefit of Smart Works.
