The second half of Day one for #SussexRoyalTour brought Their Royal Highnesses to The District Six Museum and the Homecoming Centre who are re-building their local community in Cape Town. The Duke and Duchess had a first hand look and understanding of how much of this diverse community was destroyed, with people subjected to forced relocation during the apartheid era. At the Homecoming centre The Duke and Duchess were treated to food cooked by local women that showcased the wonderful variety of recipes – and the importance of cooking to bring communities together – a topic The Duchess feels strongly about (just like Together, the cookbook from the women of The Hubb Community Kitchen which The Duchess supported this time last year). • Their Royal Highnesses have had an amazing first day in South Africa and are incredibly grateful for the wonderful welcome they have received. Thank You! Stay tuned for more updates and behind the scenes moments on tour! #RoyalVisitSouthAfrica • Photo © SussexRoyal / Omid Scobie / PA images

After a late lunch, they changed their clothes and made their way to the District Six Museum. There they were greeted by Bonita Bennett, the director of the museum.

The blue Veronica Beard dress that Meghan wore was the same one that she wore in Tonga during the tour that she and Harry did last year when she announced her pregnancy.

The District Six Museum is not only a way of educating people about the consequences of the Group Areas Act but they are also working to reunite members of the community who were forcibly removed during apartheid.

Tomorrow sees the Duke and Duchess starting their day at Monwabisi Beach and meeting with organisations such as Waves for Change, The Lunchbox Fund and the Commonwealth Litter Program. Later they will celebrate Heritage Day in Bo Kaap and then they will visit the Auwal Mosque, the oldest mosque in the country.
