The public saw a ‘new side’ of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex on the first day of their Africa tour, an expert has claimed.
The ‘turning point’ came when Prince Harry, 35, and Meghan Markle, 38, were seen dancing and laughing with locals as they visited a Justice Desk initiative in Nyanga township, during their royal tour of South Africa on September 23, 2019 in Cape Town, according to Christine Ross, the editor of the Meghan’s Mirror blog.
‘She (Meghan) was dancing with the children and it was such a stark contrast to some of the events we had seen before her pregnancy,’ she said, speaking on the Mirror’s royal podcast Pod Save the Queen.
‘She’s in this very affordable dress, she’s in affordable wedges, her hair is in a ponytail, she’s dancing with children.’

She continued: ‘We didn’t know then what we know now but I think that moment and that look was a turning point in their roles, in that they weren’t going to be these high glamour royals any more,’ added Christine.
‘They wanted to be more down to earth, with the people, dancing with the children, getting out with the crowds.’
The Duchess wore a dress designed by the sustainable Malawi-based fashion brand Mayamiko and the couple sported matching ‘Justice Desk’ beaded bracelets as they shook hands with beaming locals.
‘I love that wrap dress because it’s not a royal colour,’ explained Christine. ‘…She was still showing a very normal post-postum body which so many women around the world appreciated and that outfit to me, especially as it marked the beginning of the tour, was a turning point with her relationship with her role as a duchess.’

It comes after Meghan Markle and Prince Harry were pictured in Los Angeles for the first time following their recent move.
The Duke and Duchess were seen delivering food packages on behalf of the Los Angeles-based nonprofit Project Angel Food on Wednesday.
Harry and Meghan were captured on surveillance cameras arriving at the Sierra Bonita Community Apartments in West Hollywood in their SUV at 10:55am.
A security team accompanied the couple in a separate SUV that followed closely behind, but they opted to walk up to the apartment to deliver the food alone.
Dressed casually in jeans, Harry and Meghan both followed California’s new rules regarding face coverings, issued by Gov. Gavin Newsom on April 15.
