It’s only day two of Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan’s whirlwind royal tour, but the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are getting their full 10 days worth.

The royal couple spent their second day in Cape Town visiting with local organisations and despite their busy schedule, they couldn’t look more in love and at ease.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s day kicked off at Monwabisi Beach when they met with charity Waves for Change that provides mental health services to vulnerable young people with the help of local surf mentors.

Harry and Meghan also met with The Lunchbox Fund, a charity that provides nearly 30,000 nutritious meals every day to Waves for Change programmes and schools in South Africa’s townships and rural areas. And the charity has some special significance for the couple as it was one of the organisations the Duke and Duchess suggested people donate to instead of sending gifts when their son Archie was born.

The couple then parted ways briefly when Prince Harry embarked on a solo trip along Kalk Bay’s coast with officers from the City of Cape Town Marine Unit to learn about their work on illegal wildlife poaching while Duchess Meghan returned to baby Archie.

The royal parents then reunited in Bo Kaap and visited South Africa’s oldest mosque, Auwal Mosque to celebrate Heritage Day before attending a reception for young people, community and civil society leaders at the Residence of the British High Commissioner.

While there was no sign of little Archie for their jam-packed second day, we were treated to a plethora of pictures of Harry and Meghan throughout the day and we even saw three glorious outfits from the stylish Duchess too!
