Meghan Markle Brought a Special Gift with Her from Home to Give to South African Charity for Moms

Meghan Markle had two special solo outings during her tour to South Africa on Wednesday.

The royal mom, 38, who took Archie on his first official outing earlier in the day, visited mothers2mothers charity, which trains and employs women living with HIV to be health workers in eight African countries.

Meghan, wearing a chic black Everlane jumpsuit, her Manolo Blahnik black suede pumps and gold statement earrings by GAS Bijoux, brought along some special gifts with her.

The Duchess of Sussex handed over two large bags of “loved but outgrown” clothes from Archie and her friends’ children to donate to the charity. Some of the items include baby clothes that were sent to her and Prince Harry when their son was born in May.

“It’s so important that we’re able to share what’s worked for our family and know that we’re all in this together with each other. So we wanted to share something form our home to each of yours,” she said.

Meghan also came with books, pens and other gifts for the mothers2mothers group that works to help families with HIV in the South African city. The royal mom sat on the floor with the other mothers as the children played.

“The Duchess decided to bring a number of his presents to hand on to South African children and families most in need,” a royal source says.

Earlier in the day, Meghan met with female entrepreneurs who work in technology during a visit to the Woodstock Exchange in Cape Town, where local creatives can go to grow and support their craft.

The outings come on the third day of a landmark first tour that Harry and Meghan have taken as a family with their son. On Monday, Harry, 35, outlined his philosophy as a dad, telling children at a workshop to teach them self-defense and female empowerment training, “Now, it’s about redefining masculinity, it’s about creating your own footprints for your children to follow in, so that you can make a positive change for the future.

“To me, the real testament of your strength isn’t physical, it’s what’s up here and what’s in here. Your strength is in your spirit, which for me means honoring and protecting my wife, and being a positive role model for my son.”

To kick off the third day of their royal South Africa tour, Prince Harry introduced his wife and almost 5-month-old son to an old friend.

On Wednesday morning, the little royal was taken by his parents for his first official royal engagement to meet with famed anti-apartheid campaigner Archbishop Desmond Tutu and his daughter, Thandeka Tutu-Gxashe.

During the meeting, the royal couple had a lively laughter-filled chat with Archbishop Tutu and Thandeka, where Harry revealed that Archie “constantly wants to stand.”

Meghan added, “He’s an old soul!”

“I think he knows exactly what’s going on,” Harry said of his son.
