Meghan Markle emulates Princess Diana in a headscarf as Duchess beams during mosque visit | Royal | News

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex visited the Auwal Mosque in Bo-Kaap, Cape Town, where they met faith leaders. Meghan wore a long khaki dress and a headscarf for the engagement to South Africa’s first and oldest mosque.

It is the first time the former actress has been seen in a traditional headscarf during public royal duties.

Other members of the royal family who have worn headscarfs during engagements are the Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry’s late mother Diana.

Earlier today, Meghan and Harry headed to Monwabisi Beach in Cape Town to learn about the work of NGO Waves for Change, which trains and supports local surf mentors to help youngsters with mental health services.

And they heard about the efforts of the Lunchbox Fund, which provides nearly 30,000 meals every day to Waves for Change programmes and schools in South Africa’s Townships and rural areas.

Meghan cut a casual figure in black skinny jeans teamed with a white shirt, denim jacket and flat shoes.

Harry also travelled by boat with a crew from the City of Cape Town Marine Unit to Seal Island, Kalk Bay, to see their work combating the poaching of abalone.

Abalone is a type of sea snail that is at critically low levels, as a plate of the marine delicacy is worth more than its weight in gold to Chinese diners.

They kicked off their 10-day tour of Africa on Monday.

Meghan is staying in South Africa with Archie, who was born in May, while Harry will also travel to Angola, Malawi and Botswana.

The tour from September 23 to October 2 is the Sussexes’ first as a family.

In Angola, Harry will see the anti-landmine work of his mother Diana.

She famously walked through a cleared minefield in Angola in 1997 to raise awareness of the explosives months before her death in a Paris car crash.

Harry will end the trip in Johannesburg with Meghan and Archie.

Yesterday, Meghan and Harry visited the Nyanga Township in Cape Town before their second engagement to the District Six Museum.
