Meghan Markle visits female entrepreneurs after outfit change

The Duchess of Sussex has left baby Archie and her husband Harry behind for a series of solo events at groups empowering women in South Africa.

Meghan first went to meet inspiring female entrepreneurs in Cape Town before a visit to the city’s Mothers2Mothers organisation, which trains and employs women with HIV.

Earlier the Duchess and Prince Harry took Archie on his first public engagement to meet Archbishop and anti-apartheid campaigner Desmond Tutu. 

Meghan then changed into a chic Her black Everlane jumpsuit, teamed with statement GAS Bijoux gold earrings, and black Manolo Blahnik pumps for the solo events.

The 38-year-old wore the same £100 jumpsuit while working behind-the-scenes on the September issue of British Vogue in July. 

At the business event Meghan met with Shirley Gilbey, the director of the UK-SA Tech Hub, a group which supports South Africans, particularly women, involved in the tech industry with skills development resources and support.

The Tech Hub focuses on skills development, capacity building, mentorship and access to markets by assisting entrepreneurs, particularly women, to acquire skills, resources and support.

Meghan met with 12 inspiring female entrepreneurs, gathered around a table for a discussion on their experiences. 

She learned how the ‘Ladies who Launch’ conversation series, that brings together a cross-section of female entrepreneurs, investors and corporate decision makers, is supporting and inspiring them. 

The goal is to ignite the opportunity through network building between aspiring – and inspiring – female entrepreneurs and successful role model women.

In March 2019, The Duchess of Sussex joined a panel discussion convened by The Queen’s Commonwealth Trust to mark International Women’s Day, featuring female business and charity leaders, the panellists discussed the obstacles that still affect female empowerment across the world today, and the positive opportunities that come when women are given wider access.

Harry and Meghan are on a 10-day visit to Africa with their four-month-old son Archie and later the duke will leave his family to travel to Botswana.

He will also visit Angola and Malawi over the coming days before he is reunited next week with his wife and child in Johannesburg.
