As she left, Meghan stopped to tickle 15-month-old Asivile, who was rolling around on the floor with some of the toys. “Look at who’s having the best time, living her best life!” Meghan laughed, before giving hugs to all the women and bidding them farewell.
Earlier in the day, Meghan visited female entrepreneurs at the Woodstock Exchange to learn more about the “Ladies Who Launch” initiative. While speaking with Lara Rosemarie, CEO of Cape Innovation and Technology, she spoke about being a working mom. “It must be a lot to juggle,” Meghan said to the mother of two. “We’re only five months in right now. Being a working mum and traveling as well with a baby—my goodness, it’s a lot, but it’s all so exciting. There are days when it’s a lot to juggle, but then you meet someone, you have an impact on them, and you say ‘A-ha,’ and it’s so rewarding.”
Before concluding work in Cape Town, Meghan will attend a “Women in Public Service” breakfast at the High Commission on September 27, with an embargo on photos and reporting from the engagement to be lifted after Harry returns from his solo travels. He’s off to Botswana, Angola, and Malawi for engagements that include tomorrow’s tree planting with the Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy and a Sentebale project visit in Kasane. “They don’t want to overshadow each other,” an aide told “They want each engagement to have visibility.”
