The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have arrived at Cape Town’s Monwabisi Beach, taking part in a welcome dance and warning of a global mental health “consciousness crisis”.
The Duchess spoke of the importance of convincing people to speak about their mental health, adding it did not matter where they are in the world, “we’re all trying to power through and find some optimism.”
The couple, who sat on the grass to join young people, were also invited to join a “power hand” activity, where they declared their personal strengths in a bonding activity.
Asked whether she considered dancing her strong point, the Duchess laughed and said no, before disclosing she hoped parenting is a new strength she and Prince Harry are “learning and developing”.
Turning to one another, she declared the Duke “the best dad” before he responded to call her the “best mum”.
The couple began their morning with a brief on-camera interview as they arrived, saying they had been”doing their best” to keep abreast of South African current affairs in the lead-up to the visit and warning of a global mental health “consciousness crisis”.
