Prince Harry is currently travelling to Botswana and then onto Angola, before returning to South Africa. Meghan and Archie are staying behind, with the Duchess doing some solo engagements.

Her first solo engagement, which took at the Woodstock Exchange, had Meghan meeting with 12 inspiring female entrepreneurs. She will learn how the Ladies Who Launch conversation series supports and inspires them. The aim of the organisation is to ‘ignite the opportunity’ through streams like network building.

She sat down with the entrepreneurs:
Am liking ‘Ladies who Launch’! (I also like Ladies who Lunch… !) Really important for all of us to pass on our experiences, knowledge & confidence to help others. pic.twitter.com/2vA9QJGMyb

About being a mother, she said, ‘We’re only 5 months in right now. Being a working mum and travelling as well with a baby, it’s a lot, but it’s all so exciting. There are days when it’s a lot to juggle but then you meet someone, have an impact on them & it’s so rewarding.’
After the Woodstock Exchange, she went to mothers2mothers, that trains and employs women living with HIV as community health workers. The ‘Mentor Mothers’ work in the community to educate pregnant women about preventing the transmission of the virus from mother to child.
Meghan brought with some of Archie’s used clothes and toys as well as donations from her friends. She said, ‘I wanted to share some things from our home to each of yours.’
“In the spirit of community” Meghan brought some of Archie’s baby clothes to @m2mtweets, including a onesie saying “The Future” and his @WeAreInvictus one that he’s outgrown. She also brought donations from her friends with children: #sussexroyaltour #Archie pic.twitter.com/pgtrkEGhNS

After leaving the organisation, Meghan met some fans outside of the building who presented her with flowers and artwork. And a very sweet moment where a young girl, Amara Nenguke started crying as she met Meghan and the Duchess consoled her.
