This morning, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry touched down in Cape Town, South Africa. The royal couple kicked off their 10-day tour of the continent—with 4-month-old son Archie in tow—by visiting Cape Town’s Nyanga township, where they received a warm welcome from locals. “I am here as a mother, as a wife, as a woman, as a woman of color, and as your sister,” Markle told the crowd upon arrival. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are in town attending the Justice Desk workshop, which teaches children about safety and self-defense.
For her appearance, Markle chose to wear an African label—a move she often does while traveling on a royal tour to support regional talent. The Duchess wore a black and white printed wrap dress from Mayamiko, a fair trade label from Malawi. The Dalitso style features capped sleeves and a V-neckline, and is made from ethically-sourced organic cotton stitched in the Mayamiko workshop, a charity that provides local artisans with job training. Markle finished off her ensemble with affordable Castaner wedges, a footwear brand that’s also been embraced by her sister-in-law Kate Middleton.
