MEGHAN Markle has stepped out on her first solo event today to support female entrepreneurs and mums.
The Duchess of Sussex stunned in a black dress and large gold earrings as she arrived for the event on the the third day of her Royal Africa Tour.
The 38-year-old headed to this afternoon’s engagement without her 35-year-old husband, with Prince Harry heading to Botswana.
It comes as she is expected to hand out gifts from her own son Archie as she meets HIV “mentor mothers” at a local charity later today.
A palace source said: “The Duke and Duchess were inundated with gifts for baby Archie from organisations and the general public.
“They were incredibly grateful but one little baby can only wear so many clothes and he’s growing fast!
“So the Duchess decided to being a number of his presents to re-gift them to South African children and families most in need. She’ll take a selection of clothes, books and pens to the mothers2mothers charity which help families with HIV.”
Earlier today, the mum showed off baby Archie as the four-month-old boy met Archbishop Desmond Tutu this morning.
Archie, wearing sweet blue overalls and white socks, stole the show as he grinned at the camera in his first official outing during the family’s Royal Africa tour.
The seventh-in-line to the throne – who appeared to have tell-tale signs of his dad’s red hair – even received a kiss from the veteran Nobel Prize winner.
During morning tea, the Archbishop’s daughter Thandeka Tutu-Gxashe joked: “You like the ladies. He’s going to be a ladies’ man.”
As they arrived for the meeting, the Sussexes also shared a video of their family on Instagram along with the cute caption “Arch meets Archie!”
They later posted a sweet photo of the archbishop giving Archie a sweet kiss on his forehead, writing: “Thank you Archbishop Tutu for your incredibly warm hospitality, Archie loved meeting you!”
