The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have kicked off their ten-day tour of Africa, starting in South Africa, Cape Town.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, along with their four-month-old son Archie, traveled on an overnight British Airways flight, which left the UK after a slight delay.

The family were spotted disembarking from their flight, with Meghan wearing a cardigan, white jeans and flats while holding baby Archie in her arms.

The couple’s first visit will see them visit a township, which teaches children about their rights, self-awareness and safety, and provides self-defence classes to young girls in the community. Both Harry and Meghan will each deliver a speech.

Their next stop on day 1 is a tour of the District Six Museum, which was subject to the forced relocation of 60,000 inhabitants of various races during Apartheid in the 1970s. They will then move on to the District Six Homecoming Centre, built to provide former residents a place to meet together, where they will join a community cooking activity.

As the Sussexes arrived, Nigel Casey, British High Commissioner to South Africa tweeted:

“My thanks to higher authorities for laying on perfect weather to greet TRH the Duke and Duchess of Sussex in Cape Town this morning.”
