Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle have begun the royal tour in South Africa and they are having a swell time.
The two visited the Cape Town township of Nyanga – infamous as the place where the most murder cases were reported, according to the latest SAPS crime stats – to see the important work being done by The Justice Desk, a non-profit organisation that educates children about their rights, safety and self-awareness.
The Duchess of Sussex gave a speech condemning the scourge of violence against women, telling members of a township community she is there as a “woman of colour and as your sister”.
“No man is born to cause harm to women. This is learned behaviour and we need to break that cycle,” Prince Harry is quoted as saying on People.com.
“My role is to defend my wife and be a positive role model for my son.”
The duchess added a personal note, telling the audience: “While I am here as a member of the royal family, I am here with you as a woman, as a wife, as a woman of colour.”
The Prince and his wife danced in Nyanga and also appreciated every gesture of love given them.
