Harry and Meghan head to beach to meet surfers on second day of tour
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex hit the beach today as they joined young surfers for a session on mental well-being.
The couple, who are on the second day of their South Africa royal tour, travelled to Monwabisi Beach, 20 miles from Cape Town, where they had been due to join a welcoming chant - a Kilo - in a circle sat on the beach.
But high winds meant the pre-planned photo-op right on the beach was scrapped.
The couple had travelled to the Cape Flats to learn about Waves for Change, an organisational that fuses surfing with evidence-based mind and body therapy for vulnerable young people.
Harry and Meghan chatted with Lisa Mlholi and Lux Ponco, two of the surf mentors, before meeting Dr Thomas Maes, Director of the Commonwealth Litter Programme (CLiP).
They also met Loyiso Dunga, a marine biologist from the Sea Change Project, who will speak about the impact of micro plastics in the ocean and provide a demonstration in their micro laboratory.
The Sea Change Project is a community of ocean scientists working to protect the oceans through film, journalism and activism, led by Craig Foster, an award-winning filmmaker, whose work has appeared on Sir David Attenborough's Planet Earth.
The Duke and Duchess also met Safe Space Manager, Dini Gudlindu and Co-Founder of Waves for Change, Apish Tshetsha.
Following the briefing, and returning downstairs to the kitchen area, the couple will meet Ndileka Wana and Priscilla Mere who will be preparing food from the Lunchbox Fund.
The Lunchbox Fund, a charity that provides nearly 30,000 nutritious meals every day to Waves for Change programmes and schools in South Africa's townships and rural areas.
It was one of four charities chosen by The Duke and Duchess of Sussex to benefit from the gen-erous donations made by the public on the occasion of the birth of their son, Archie Mountbatten Windsor.
Monwabisi is a coastal resort that mainly caters for the residents of nearby Khayelitsha. Its name means 'bringing joy'.
