Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s recent trip to Africa has brought about a variety of viral moments, specifically set to the tune of #BlackGirlMagic.
After the Duchess of Sussex announced herself “as a woman of color and as your sister,” as she stood among a group of African women, we’ve seen a wide expansion of the Duchess after the birth of her first-born son Archie.
Continuing in the tradition, the Duchess visited mothers2mothers—a nonprofit organization in Cape Town fighting for an HIV-free Africa. As we’ve seen throughout the years, Harry and his brother Prince William have continued their late mother’s efforts in fighting for AIDS survivors and for more visibility surrounding the disease, as well as research efforts.
A group of several people stood outside the organization’s doors, a young 8-year-old girl named Amara Nenguke became overwhelmed with emotion. To soothe her, the Duchess bent down on one knee to kiss her hand. The moment marked a beautiful moment that showed the Duchess’ humanity and humility.
Moments after their encounter cameras caught up with Nenguke who eloquently described her experience now canonized in photo history. The Duchess sealed it with a loving hug directly after.
“It was incredible,” Amara began when asked about the moment. “She’s so nice. And when she goes to other countries, like she’s—that’s her home, and she’s family with those other people and I like that about her.”
“I’m going to say that if you feel as if like you’re never going to meet someone you really want to meet, just believe in yourself. You can always have dreams,” she continued.
The royal couple and baby Archie will continue their stay in Africa over the next few days, visiting Malawi and then transitioning to South Africa.
