From Town & Country

This morning, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry arrived at one of the highlights of their royal tour: a meeting with Archbishop Desmond Tutu at the Desmond & Leah Tutu Legacy Foundation in Cape Town.

Baby Archie also attended the meeting, marking his first official public appearance on the Sussexes' tour of South Africa.

For the important occasion, Meghan opted to wear a blue and white printed dress, a look which she paired with a sleek bun, and pointy-toe stilettos.

After meeting with Tutu, the royal couple's schedules will take different paths. Prince Harry will decamp for his visits to three other African countries (Botswana, Malawi, and Angola), while Meghan will stay behind in South Africa with Archie.

But that doesn't mean we won't be seeing the Duchess. Starting with an event this afternoon, where she'll meet women entrepreneurs, Meghan has her own itinerary of royal engagements lined up.

Today's event at the Woodstock Exchange fits in well with her overall focus during this trip. "Through her Patronages, the Duchess will be working with organizations to promote women’s education, health, entrepreneurship and leadership," the royal couple's private secretary, Samantha Cohen, said as she revealed the royal tour schedule. Cohen added that Meghan is "particularly looking forward" to meeting "inspirational women in the region."

At Woodstock Exchange, Cohen explained, "Her Royal Highness will highlight the benefits of networking between aspiring female entrepreneurs and successful female role models."

Shortly before her arrival in South Africa, one more event was announced for Meghan. Today she'll also stop by Mothers2mothers, a charity that trains and employs women living with HIV as community health workers.

Tomorrow, the Duchess will continue this work at a "Women in Public Service" breakfast at the High Commission in Cape Town.
