has come to an end, but The Duke and Duchess have had the opportunity to look back on an incredible 10 days through South Africa, Botswana, Angola and Malawi. Thank you for following along! Their Royal Highness’s journey took them 15,000 miles across southern Africa where they we’re greeted by so many amazing people along the way. They witnessed the great partnership between the UK and Africa, met local community groups, leaders, and youth and elders, who all imparted knowledge and inspiration. On their final day of the tour, The Duchess said: “Please know that you have all given us so much inspiration, so much hope – and above all, you have given us joy.” • During their tour, The Duke and Duchess unveiled three new Queens Commonwealth Canopy projects, protecting forests and planting trees, and worked with the British Government to announce investment of £8m in technology and skills in the region. The Duke traveled to Angola to focus on the ongoing mission to rid the world of landmines, an extension of the work that was pioneered by his mother, Diana, Princess of Wales. The Duchess announced gender grants from the Association of Commonwealth Universities to improve access to higher education for women, as well as four scholarships for students studying across the commonwealth. Throughout this trip they were able to join an important and essential conversation about the rights of women and girls – not isolated to Southern Africa, but also globally. Throughout this visit, The Duke and Duchess were struck by the spirit and generosity from every community they visited. Speaking to young entrepreneurs in Tembisa, a township in Johannesburg, The Duke said: “As I raise my own son, I want to make sure that what I’ve learned here – the value of the natural world, the value of community and friendship – is something that I can pass on to him.” • Thank you to everyone who supported from afar, and those who have followed along the way!

How did Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry spend their time during the ten days of their royal tour? According to Good Housekeeping, Prince Harry, Markle, and even little Archie were busy meeting up with country leaders and discussing issues such as raising awareness to many issues.

For example, Prince Harry spotlighted the need to eradicate landmines, just like his late mother, Princess Diana, did many years ago. Not only that, but Duchess Meghan gave a speech to a group of women who are members of a female empowerment organization, which she absolutely loved doing.

One of the best moments was when Archie was introduced to Archbishop Desmond Tutu and his daughter. In addition, Prince Harry spoke about his hopes and dreams for Baby Archie, saying that he would like to pass along his values and his love of Africa.

However, it wasn’t all work and no fun for the duke and duchess! While there, they participated in a friendly game on the beach with a group of surfers, appearing to have the time of their lives as they swayed back and forth as they did work with a charity called Waves for Change. 

How is the tour of Africa changing Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s image?

Prince Harry and Markle have always done things their own way. While they don’t outwardly defy royal rules and protocol, they do tend to put their own spin on things, such as moving away from the high-profile city of London, and not doing the traditional photocall immediately after their son was born.

Their recent tour of Africa is changing the image of the royal couple for the better, according to Express. They are interacting with so many local people and doing what they can to make a difference while they are there. According to a royal expert, the trip has been “uniquely informal,” with Markle wearing many sustainable clothing labels and also choosing not to wear her engagement ring while there.

Everyone is said to be delighted with how personalized their visit has been, as they have hugged the majority of the people they have met.

Now that the trip has officially ended, many people are left wondering how Prince Harry’s grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, feels with the outcome. As it turns out, she is over the moon with the way things went, and couldn’t be prouder of Duchess Meghan, Prince Harry, and Archie.

While a royal commentator says that some people are “upset” about the non-traditional approach the duke and duchess took, the queen herself couldn’t be happier. Looks like the Sussexes have her majesty’s seal of approval for their royal tour.
