Meghan, 38, and Harry, 35, were pictured interacting with and hugging locals, with the new mom receiving a warm embrace from one child.
Meghan was all smiles, dancing with locals as Prince Harry and the crowd looked on.
The couple were cheered on by schoolchildren waving the national flag as they arrived at Nyanga Methodist Church, where they watched dancers perform in traditional costume.
Meghan also made a speech during the engagement.
“While I’m here with my husband as a member of the royal family, I want you to know that for me, I am here as a mother, as a wife, as a woman of color and as your sister,” she told listeners.
The couple also shared an adorable intimate moment, which was caught on camera, as Harry adjusted his wife’s hair.

For the engagement, Meghan wore a pair of Castañer wedges and a monochrome printed wrap dress by Mayamiko, a sustainable and ethical womanswear label set up by founder Paola Masperi after she did extensive travel in Malawi, southeast Africa.
Later on Monday, to complete the first day of their tour, they will be touring the District Six Museum to learn about its work to reunite community members forcibly relocated during the apartheid era, before joining in a community cooking activity with former District Six residents at the nearby Homecoming Center.
This 10-day royal tour, taken at the request of the Foreign Office, marks the first one the couple have undertaken with their son.
Following a couple of days in Cape Town attending engagements with Meghan — and possibly Archie — Prince Harry will then visit Botswana, Angola and Malawi while Meghan and Archie remain in South Africa.
The tour serves as an opportunity for the duke and duchess to highlight “many of the causes that they have been involved with for many years,” a statement from the couple’s communications secretary said ahead of the tour.
Further tour engagements will focus on “community, grassroots leadership, women’s and girls’ rights, mental health, HIV/AIDS and the environment,” an Instagram post from Sussex Royal said.
This is not Harry and Meghan’s first royal tour. The pair completed an earlier royal tour last fall, traveling to Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and Tonga.
