The royal couple were visiting a township near Cape Town — their first stop on a ten-day African tour — where they were greeted with a lively party and plenty of hugs and high fives.
In a powerful speech to the hosts, she said: “May I just say that while I am here with my husband as a member of The Royal Family, I want you to know that for me I am here with you as a mother, as a wife, as a woman, as a woman of colour and as your sister.
“Please know that my husband and I have been closely following what you’ve been experiencing here — as best we can from afar.
“But now that we are with you, we are eager to learn and see first-hand the work that you’re doing, the vital work that you’re doing.
“And that everything that is being done on the ground is making the great change that you not only need but that you deserve.”
