As husband Harry continues his tour in Angola, the Duchess of Sussex is showing her support in South Africa. Earlier this week, Meghan made a private pilgrimage to the post office where a college student was raped and murdered in Cape Town over a week ago.
According to Emily Andrews, a royal correspondent, “Meghan made a secret trip to pay tribute to Uyinene Mrwetyana whose brutal murder has outraged South Africa.
“The Duchess was so shocked by the torture, rape and murder of the beautiful student she made a top-secret pilgrimage to the post office where she was killed.”
Meghan also paid tribute by leaving a handwritten message which read: “Harry & Meghan 26th September 2019.” In addition, she wrote, “We stand together in this situation,” in the native language of Xhosa.
The last time Meghan carried out a public engagement, during the tour, was on Wednesday. The Duchess attended several engagements. First, she and Harry introduced their son Archie to Archbishop Desmond Tutu and his daughter Thandeka Tutu- Gxashe.
Appearing in front of cameras was no problem the little tot. “I think he’s used to it already,” Harry said after they were photographed. “He’s an old soul,” Meghan added.
After the meeting with the Archbishop, Harry flew to Botswana while Meghan carried out solo engagements.
She visited UK-South Africa tech hub, the Woodstock Exchange, where she met with women entrepreneurs and investors working in technology.
The mom then stopped at mothers2mothers; an organization which supports women with HIV by training them to become community healthcare workers.
There she made a wonderful gesture. Meghan brought with her a large black holdall full of baby clothing that her son Archie has already outgrown; as well as from children of her friends.
Gesturing to the bag, she added: “There are all sorts of things there. It’s so important to be able to share with other families…you’re all in this together and with each other and so we just wanted to share something from our home to each of yours.”
