The Duchess of Sussex described Prince Harry as the “best dad” today and he in turn called her the “best mum,” during an event at Monwabisi Beach near Cape Town.
Meghan also opened up about parenting and shared how she thinks it is "a new strength" that she and Harry are developing during a session with with ‘Waves for Change,’ a project that uses surfing to help vulnerable young people.
The couple began the day at Monwabisi Beach near Cape Town where they met mentors from the NGO, which combines surfing with evidence-based mind and body therapy to provide a mental health service to youth living in challenging communities.
Dressed casually, they joined a group of surf mentors in a circle for a Kilo (a welcoming chant, and call and response game).
“We were invited to share strengths because it’s part of the activity and identifying your strengths, you feel more positive,” Ash Heese, 37, who works as a training and partnerships manager at Waves for Change told T&C afterwards.
About Meghan, she said, “She looked a little bit hesitant so one of our coaches shared that her participation and her energy and her dancing was one of her strengths.”
“She laughed and said no she doesn’t think so, but parenting is a new strength that she and Harry are learning and developing,” Heese explained.
“She said he’s the best dad, and he said she’s the best mum.”
Heese also described Harry and Meghan as “very engaging,” adding, “They were keen to engage with the coaches on their level, no sense of talking down or being patronizing towards them. They seemed genuinely interested in our coaches and our coaches are the heart of our program.”
“It’s wonderful to have such positive mental health champions showcasing our work, showcasing the importance of positive youth development,” she said.
While at the beach, Harry and Meghan also saw the work of the Lunchbox Fund, a charity that provides nearly 30,000 nutritious meals every day to Waves for Change program and schools in South Africa’s townships and rural areas.
The Lunchbox Fund was one of four charities chosen by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to benefit from the donations made by the public when Archie was born.
