The royals are in South Africa for their first full-fledged tour as a family!

Meghan Markle, Prince Harry and Baby Archie kicked off their 10-day tour when they touched down in Cape Town, South Africa.

For Day 2, the Duke & Duchess of Sussex were all smiles at a function in Cape Town. The happy couple spent the morning at Monwabisi Beach to visit Waves For Change, an organization that helps children though the power of surfing. They also paid a visit to the Lunchbox Fun, which provides healthy means to orphaned and vulnerable children.

For their final outing of the day (above), the couple https://uk.style.yahoo.com/meghan-markle-martin-grant-striped-dress-roya... ">paid a visit opinion-formers and young future leaders at the British High Commissioner’s Residence in Cape Town. The new mom wore a striped sundress by Australian designer Martin Grant for the youth reception. The same one she wore while pregnant.  And yes, it's already sold out. Meanwhile, Prince Harry wore a beige suit, blue shirt and brown loafers.

The couple was gifted a toy for their 4-month-old son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor:

 

 

Aww!

Speaking of Baby Archie:

 

Meghan told the locals Archie has been a 'wonderful' baby.  According to the Daily Mail, "an anonymous guest said Meghan told of the family's flight over: 'They said it was the longest flight they have taken with Archie. She slept with one eye open - but he was very good.'"

 

Meghan and Prince Harry paid tribute to Harry's late mother, Princess Diana, as they were spotted coming off the plane. Baby Archie wore a white knit hat with a pom-pom similar to the one Diana chose for Harry when she was a baby as they stepped off a plane at Aberdeen Airport in Scotland in January 1985. Harry was also around 4-months-old at the time. Super sweet.

The royal couple paid a visit to Auwal Mosque in the Bo-Kaap neighborhood during their royal tour of South Africa. The visit was reportedly designed to promote understanding between "different religions, faiths cultures and backgrounds and an appreciation of the value of diversity".

Meghan wore a headscarf, following in the footsteps of her mother-in-law Diana, Princess of Wales.

The Duchess made a speech during the Justice Desk initiative in Nyanga township with Prince Harry as they continued their rounds for their tour. In it, she told the South African people, 'I am here as a woman of color and as your sister'. Sweet.

The new mom rocked a black-and-white printed Dalitso wrap dress from Mayamiko, which was sourced and made in Malawi. The dress retails for only $85, and yes, it's sold out. Obvi.

She finished her look with Castañer wedges and styled her hair in a low ponytail.

The 38-year-old changed into a casual button down sky blue dress that featured a wrap waist. Meghan rocked the dress during her and Harry's visit to Tonga’s Tupou College in Oct. 2018 when she was pregnany with Archie. She paired the dress with black wedges and wore her hair down in flowy waves.
