For the last few days of their Africa royal tour, Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan have been attending their own separate engagements.

But for their final day, the royal couple reunited in Johannesburg, South Africa, for a series of events, in their first joint appearance since revealing that they will be suing a British tabloid newspaper.

For their first stop, Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan visited the Youth Unemployment Services (YES) Hub in the Tembisa township.

There, they met with young entrepreneurs at a hub that helps create opportunity, and is a hive for creativity and social enterprise.

“We will always seek to challenge injustice and to speak out for those who may feel unheard. So no matter your background, your nationality, your age or gender, your sexuality, your physical ability, no matter your circumstance or colour or of your skin – we believe in you, and we intend to spend our entire lives making sure you have the opportunity to succeed – and to change the world,” Prince Harry said in his speech.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s appearance marks the first since announcing that they will sue a British tabloid for unlawfully publishing one of Meghan’s private letters.

During the engagement, Harry and Meghan sampled food from ‘Chef Mish’, a local MasterChef winner and also met with entrepreneur Moss, who showed The Duke and Duchess of Sussex the organic produce he’s growing and supplying local restaurant with.

And as a self-pronounced foodie, we bet Duchess Meghan, who looked radiant in a crisp white shirt dress, was in her element!

Their final meeting was with the women at Blossom Care Solutions – an organisation that makes 80,000 compostable and low-cost sanitary pads every month for women in their community.

The cause is close to the Duchess’ heart, as she has campaigned for girls and women to have access to menstrual health facilities even before she was a royal.

Back in 2017, the then-Meghan Markle visited India and met with the Myna Mahila Foundation, which works with females to provide basic sanitary products and breaks taboos about periods.

“In communities all over the globe, young girls’ potential is being squandered because we are too shy to talk about the most natural thing in the world,” Duchess Meghan wrote for TIME magazine in 2017 shortly after her trip.

After a quick outfit change, the royal couple met with politician, humanitarian, and international advocate for women’s and children’s rights Graça Machel, who is also former president Nelson Mandela’s widow.

Graça already has ties with the royal family, as she was made an honorary British Dame by the Queen for her contributions and services to human rights protection.

The Duchess of Sussex wore the same pink House of Nonie dress that she wore to visit the Nelson Mandela Centenary Exhibition at London’s Southbank Centre last year.

Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan then attended an afternoon reception at the British High Commissioner’s residence, to celebrate the economic relationship between the UK and South Africa.

Speaking in front of representatives of the British and South African business communities, both royals made separate speeches about their time in Africa.

In a poignant conclusion to her speech, Duchess Meghan said: “I have learned from the people I’ve met here, that whether it’s about society’s expectations of masculinity or femininity, or how we divide ourselves by race or faith or class or status- everyone has value, and everyone deserves to be heard and respected. And if you live your life in that way, your generation will start to value each other in ways the rest of us have not yet been able to do so.”

And now back home to Britain!
