Prince Harry & Meghan Markle Join Young South Africans for “Surf Therapy” on Day 2 of Royal Visit



The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are on Day 2 of their Royal Tour in South Africa.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, along with their four-month-old son Archie kicked off their 10-day tour of Africa, starting in South Africa.

Sharing highlights on their official Instagram page, here’s what’s happening on Day 2 of their visit:

Day two of #SussexRoyalTour is underway, and The Duke and Duchess have joined young South Africans and @WavesForChange to focus on mental health and take part in ‘surf therapy’.

Hundreds of young people from Cape Town’s townships meet every week at Monwabisi beach to surf, but also share stories with mentors and talk through the daily challenges they face.

Their Royal Highnesses were able to hear how the sessions are building trust, confidence, and belonging, and they also got to join in as children took part in ‘power hand’, which teaches them how to keep calm down reflect on strengths.

While on the beach The Duke and Duchess met @TheLunchBoxFund – which was one of the charities they nominated to benefit from donations following the birth of their son, Archie. Almost 30,000 meals are provided by the charity every day across South Africa, including for three @WavesForChange projects.

And before they left The Duke and Duchess joined the Commonwealth Litter Programme (CLiP) – which was teaching the surfers about the impact of plastic waste on the ocean.
