The Duchess of Sussex wore a headscarf and she reminds everyone of Princess Diana, as she joined her husband at South Africa’s first and oldest mosque.
To mark Heritage Day, a public holiday in South Africa. On this day, the nation celebrates its culture, diversity, and traditions, Meghan and Harry paid a visit to the historic Auwal Mosque in Bo-Kaap, Cape Town.
Meghan, 38, wore a floor-length olive dress and she covered her head with a scarf, even helping a woman with her veil when she stepped inside the mosque. Diana wore a veil during a visit to the Badshahi Mosque in Lahore on a royal tour of Pakistan in 1991.
During their visit, which aimed to promote dialogue between faiths, the royal couple met with Christian priests and Rabbis together with Christian, Jewish and Muslim youth leaders.
Harry told one youngster he sometimes feels ‘overwhelmed’ by the world’s problems. Peter Oki, 18, an Anglican who attends a Jewish school, said: ‘Harry said he often woke up and felt it’s hard to get out of bed because of all the issues.’
Libo Metal, 11, hugged both Meghan and Harry when they stopped to talk to crowds waiting for them in the historic Bo Kaap neighborhood.
She said of her meeting with Meghan: ‘I gave her a flower, a yellow rose and she said ‘can I get a hug? ‘You’re the sweetest person in the world and I’m like ‘what the heck?!’ and then I gave her a hug and then the prince asked me ‘did you give her a hug?’ and he gave me a hug too.’
Asked who had the best hug, Libo replied: ‘The queen! Meghan. I felt love and care.
‘I felt very special. It was just awesome. Everybody has had a good time seeing them.’
Volunteers from the Bo Kaap organization gifted the royal visitors’ packages of handmade soaps and bracelets to take with them and explained their work to yoga-fan Meghan.
Volunteer Indrani McMillan said: ‘They looked so happy, they looked so taken with the vibe. It’s so amazing, they really know how to stir up a party effect.’
