Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s Royal Tour of Africa Schedule

A royal tour is no vacation. The schedule is overflowing with speeches, presidential audiences, and ambassadorial receptions; often, the royal in question packs over four public events into a single day. And Prince Harry and Meghan Markle‘s upcoming tour of Africa is no exception.

The overall plan has Prince Harry, Meghan Markle, and Archie arriving together in Cape Town, South Africa; after a couple days there, Harry will go off on his own to Malawi, Angola, and Botswana, before reuniting with his family in South Africa. (It’s still unclear if baby Archie will make a public appearance himself, but Harry and Meghan “hope to include Archie at some point in the program,” according to a royal source.)

Below, the royal couple’s full itinerary.

September 23: Cape Town, South Africa
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will begin their tour about Cape Town, South Africa. They’ll stop by a workshop for children that educates them about “rights, self-awareness, and safety,” and also teaches young girls self-defence skills with a focus on empowerment.

Later, the royal couple will visit the District Six Museum, which honours a community that was forcibly relocated during the apartheid era. Afterwards, Meghan and Harry conclude the day at the Homecoming Centre, where they’ll take part in a community cooking activity alongside former District Six residents.

September 24: Cape Town, South Africa
The Duke and Duchess will start their day at Monwabisi Beach, meeting with Waves for Change, a charity that works with local surfers to provide mental health support for youth. They’ll also meet with the Lunchbox Fund, which provides daily meals for South African schoolchildren, as well as Waves for Change programs. (Devoted royal watchers will remember that the Lunchbox Fund was among the group of organizations that Meghan and Harry invited fans to donate to, in honour of their child’s birth.)

Related to their work with the British Commonwealth, the royal couple will then meet with Dr. Thomas Maes, the man heading the Commonwealth Litter Program, which was launched at last year’s London Commonwealth Summit.

Harry will then set on his own for a bit, to perform his duties of Captain General of the Royal Marines. The Duke will travel with the City of Cape Town Marine Unit by boat, to learn about how the organization combats abalone poaching. Later, Meghan will rejoin him to visit Bo Kaap in celebration of Heritage Day. The pair will see the oldest mosque in the country, Auwal mosque, and have tea with local residents. A reception at the British High Commissioner’s residence will finish off the day.
